W108 Sunroof Question

Hello All,

I own a 69 280se Euro W108, second owner of this car since 1985. Currently, she is undergoing restoration. I am in a bit of a snag at the moment with the power sunroof. The body shop guy disassembled the sunroof in order to paint it thoroughly. All the seals were removed and discarded by the shop as well. Now that I finally have the complete seal kit, i'm stumped as to how the side brushes mount up. I do own a shop manual however, there is no mentioning of the electric sun roof.

If I could only see a picture of another w108 with the sunroof open, all i need to see is the insides of the opening of the sunroof would be very helpful. Are there any W108 owners out there with power sun roofs who could provide me this picture I need?

Thanks,

1969 280se W108 (Euro)
Indianapolis, IN
Pictures coming soon.

This is an older thread and I hoped you solved your issues already, but if not I have a power sunroof and can provide said pictures if needed. Let me know.

I also am in the process of installing the sunroof brushes and seals and would like to see photos. Please post.

Thanks!

Here are a few pictures. Please let me know if you need clearer ones or certain angles. This is a 73 280se, by the way

W108 Sunroof Questions

Hello All,

Have been away doing military stuff and now back. Thank you for the pics, I have since managed to track down the two missing brackets that go inside the left and right sides of the sunroof. Eveything was installed by myself, pretty much straight forward and will put up some pics when i get home. Once again thanks!

Hello,

I have the same problem with completing parts for sunroof brushes.
Already I've got brushes and holes for screw.

How are these brushes mounted - is there any additional bar which keeps it, or there are crews with shaped shims?

If it is possible, please share photo of brush with screws.

Best regards
Thomas
