Did they? If so, I wonder what they look like. It would have to be a different door card to retrofit the wood. Would like to see a picture if they exist.

I'm pretty sure Sportline never had any sort of door trims. The only door trims have always been the aftermarket kind that attaches over the stock door panel. They used to be put them on the old AMG tuned 201s. Most of the time I saw it being sold as an aftermarket kit in the old Performance Products catalogs as well.

Yep we looked at those kits as an option as well but they are not genuine and they are stick-on. Would not last.
Also, once installed, one can not remove the door without removing them. That is a pain too.
So we converged on this W124 solution. An order of magnitude cheaper, looks better (IMHO) and the door cards are removable easily.

Got in the car today and realized the rear passenger window wasnt fully up and wouldn't go up. Remove the door panel, mess with it, something not right but cant tell what. Think I need a new window slide jaw. Manage to figure out how it works, figure out it isnt broken, pop it back into place and we're in business. I love when I can fix something without making it worse or spending money.

Does it only go up to a certain point and get jammed or does it not move at all (up or down)?

Ok, that does sounds like a mechanical problem.

This is from a w124 but mine looked exactly like this. Remove the white plastic piece of the window glass. Push the metal triangular piece toward the window and rotate it counter clockwise until it snaps its place. Get the white plastic piece back into the white slide.

That's always so satisfying. It's so rare when money isn't involved that it should be celebrated when that happens. I've had a couple of such occasions with my W201and I fully enjoyed them too.

That plastic clip is a pretty common failure point on the rear window regulators and it's always the right for some reason. MB window motors rarely fail, but those plastic bits always do. Fortunately I've got a full set of regulators from a car I parted out.

Finally got around to putting the outside temp LCD in and refit the rest of the interior trim, center vent surround is trashed but who knows when I'll find a good one. I'm guessing a lot of the issue is age making the plastic brittle and the dash shrink, but the fit is awful for the vent surround pieces and the cluster, its all just a massive pain and next to impossible not to break stuff. Regardless its all back together. Also took the morning to finally light up a cigar and do a smoke test, looks like I do have a leak at the AFM boot so ordering a new one of those and that'll be a project for the coming weekend, luckily no other vacuum leaks.
