Hey,

Does anybody know where I can get the white plastic grommets that go inside the holes on the top of the windscreen that the hard-top/soft-top connects into.

Part numbers might be useful too, if anybody knows them.

Thanks in advance,

Good find. I was searching and couldn't find it. Who would have thought to look under covering and lining/instrument panel?? :confused: Surely not me but good thing Chief was here. That's why there should only be one Chief and many Indians:thumbsup:

Sometimes EPC is strange. I'm German and I don't get what they do many times.

That's why I love this forum! Fast and reliable.

It's a shame it's so droll and humourless though. :(

I found my heater hose under Engine Suspension for my 96 SL600.

I found it now, but under 'Covering and Lining/Front panel pillar panelling, lining on floor and footrest'

Can anyone post a picture of these installed? My 560SL doesn't have them, and I can't see how they would go on. PO beat the heck out of the aluminum surrounding the holes. Does the aluminum piece across the top have to come off to install the grommets?

They have a cut out in the center. You just pinch them, slide down a little in the hole and they lock into place. 15 seconds a side max. Just buy them and all will be clear.

If it is as beaten as you say, you might have to gently pry up the edges to insert the grommets.

I'll be the sole dissenter and say forget about the grommets. I've been through six of them, three on each side. My car chews them up and spits them out. It doesn't want grommets.

I put new ones in a few months ago.
I couldn't get one of them to fit just right and it has since disappeared.
My aluminum windshield header looks like someone has taken a ballpeen hammer to it. The PO must have been impatient with raising the top.
I know how she felt..... the top is my biggest beef with the 107 design.

Sorry to ressurect....

Does anyone know if the aluminum strip on top of the dashboard can be replaced and at what cost? Ours is pretty beaten up as well and the o-ring seals will not stay in place!

Threadus Resurrectus isn't really frowned on around here. And I'd like the OP's thoughts on his original question. :D
