I was wandering around autotrader.com this morning and looked at a '92 300SD (I know, I'm not thinking of buying it. I was just curious). Anyhoo, in the picture it had a glass sunroof, and I was wondering, is it possible to replace the standard sunroof on my '93 500SEL with the glass? Would it be big bucks for a junkyard (ahem, excuse me auto recycler)?

if you can locate a cheap enough glass sunroof at a junkyard, then go for it!
if your metal one rails are in good shape, i ll buy it off of you
If you post to ask "is the car worth the repair?", get rid of your 129/140 and go buy a 2013 Corolla... Classic Benz is not an investment for you...

There are 2 service bulletins that cover the retrofit:
work280 = instructions and parts list
77_008= looks about the same
Good Luck, Roger

If you look at the bulletin it requires you to remove the headliner add bellows, use a fixture to align the glass. They allowed 3.5 hrs shop time if you have all the parts including the sliding panel (colored), angle pieces, bellows, front trim, and glass.
They dont mention it but the weather seal has a different part # for the glass.

Yes it can be done if you can get a cheap enough glass sunroof assembly...eddie set me up as my metal roof had a bracket damaged anyway.... So if you can drop the headliner and be patient it can be done....My 1992 500SEL now sports a glass roof....
