I need the plastic bracket that surrounds the vanity mirror on my driver's side sun visor. This is for a 500 SEC. I believe 560SEC's might be the same.

Gents, I will need a new or works like new driver's side window regulator for my 1985 500 SEC. It's getting tired and will need to be replaced down the road so I might as well look into this now.

Have you tried removing the entire mechanism from the door to clean and lubricate it?

Works wonders.

The electric motor for your windows is probably just tired of the old grease and dirt in the tracks.

It was pulled out and greased last year. My issue is for whatever reason when the window gets about 2/3 of the way up the regulator flexes slightly and once all the way up the main window does not sit flush against the rear window. That results in wind noise.

As the window gets up you can hear how the regulator isn't giving it what it needs. The passenger side regulator sounds so much better.

The 560sel I briefly owned had the sheet metal in the door ripped where the studs attach. Mess.

There seems to be some flex in the sheet metal, but it might be from the window reg being wonky.
I wonder if the door has sagged over time, causing the window to be misaligned, and the regulator/motor is working hard against it. How do the gaps look?

I've posted some more items for sale that are good and worth saving a couple more of these big V8s. All offers are OBO, let me know if you guys want something I might not have listed as well. There are a lot of parts to this engine... The cylinder heads are in good condition and would hate to scrape them for a core charge, but if they don't sell at that price I will just use for my core charge.

Hi all looking for the clips or grommets that are used to hold the lower plastic cladding on a 560sel. The passenger side small rear part in front of the rear tire is dangling. Thanks in advance!

Looking for a 1991 560sec front bumper
I have a good one from 1988 SEC, from what I know all Gen II SEC bumpers are the same. 86-91. Mine has fog lights as well. I'm in Seattle area. Mike

Good morning Mike
Thank you very much for your reply
If it’s all the same to you, and I would be interested in the bumper, would you send me the Vin # of the car it came from and I will verify if it’s the same ? Also some pictures
I live in Connecticut
