My stinkin sunroof broke again.
This time, Mercedes said the whole unit has to be replaces. Conveniently, they only have a couple parts that can be replaced. After that, the whole unit needs to be replaced. Since that would cost me about half of what the car is worth,I am trying to find a used one. Is anyone parting out one of these coupes or knows where I can find one?
My recollection from when my sunroof crapped out is that the bulk of the cost ($2000 +) was labor, not parts. I don't think getting "a new one" is going to make it any better. Crap design, but cool. (I got rid of my coupe because the extended warranty was coming to an end and I knew that I couldn't afford the car out of warranty). (The MB extended warranty doesn't cover the sunroof, which really is one of the main reasons I sold the car)
