Hey All ~

With another summer on the way here, I decided to add OEM rear, side-door window shades to my S500.

It was a simple install and very affordable at approx. $150.00 CDN each. It's not as private as a tint, but we still really do enjoy them--the quality is excellent.


Happy Easter,
UnshavenChauffeur

So what are the part numbers?
These are the part numbers for LWB only; SWB will be different.

6-6-69-1324
6-6-69-1323

I would always confirm every part number/product description with the Dealer, to avoid any unwanted surprises.

I've got some aftermarket ones but from the pictures I see that yours go down with the windows whereas I always have to worry about lowering my rear windows with the thingies stuck to them. This is waaay cooler. I'll check with my local MB how much they are and if they're cheap like yours then it's a set for me.

These are the same ones that are on my Grand Edition... I may actually buy a set for my 500SEL as well. I just wish I had the electric sun-shade for the rear...

I just received these... wanted to update the part numbers for anyone interested in purchasing.

The right side shade has changed part number...

6-6-69-1323 - left rear sunblind
6-6-69-1191 - right rear sunblind

These are for W140 Long Wheelbase cars.

Apparently you can still order the right side with the old part number and they will automatically make the change.

$137 each. Wow. I paid $80 for both sides brand new.
Would you care to share with everyone where you found them at that price?

I found mine on ebay brand new a seller was selling and had got rid of his car. I remember him saying he paid close to $300 for them.

i guess im out of luck if i ask if they are made for swb 320's?
I'm sure they do make them for SWB as well. Mine look like there is an extension piece in place to make them fit the longer doors. If that piece were removed (there are screws on the underside) I bet they would fit SWB cars.

Call your dealer and ask. They may be able to use the provided part numbers as a reference.

How do these attach? Do they leave marks or holes if you remove them?

There is a tab at each end that pressure fits between the trim panel and door frame. Then there is a slide clip that snags onto the window frame between the main door glass and the triangle window. The shade itself has a clip that attaches to the top of the glass with a hook so it goes up and down with the window. If you lower the glass all the way down, the hook disengages itself and the shade will stay retracted when the glass goes back up.

I'll take some pictures later and post them.
