Got me a Saratoga portable hardtop stand! Been looking for one for a while now
Where did you find the inner piece's?Aren't they? And still original MB part!
Noticed a little buzzing with the music off at the passenger side of the dash, finally had some time to explore: Air vent assembly. Drove me nuts! Upon removal, it all just crumbled:
And as you can see, someone been there before me...
All fixed! That's the beauty of having spare parts from pick-a-part. The original is still repairable, and I will fix, it as always - using the every so versatile PlasticWeld Syringe a "must" in every R129 owner's tool box!
P.S. And yes, all of my sliders are still intact
I had spares from the junk yard for years, low miles car, but blue, all intact. So I swapped the inner, and mounted with my black fascia. I may have an idea on how to fix the tabs (want to rebuild the inners for the spare). I'll post pics if I can get it to work...Where did you find the inner piece's?
The out vent housing has 2 tabs on the bottom that snap into the inner housing. The inner pieces I have, those "holders" as I call them are broken. The vents won't stay in place. Tried 2 sided tape to hold them, no go.
Thank you D!I had spares from the junk yard for years, low miles car, but blue, all intact. So I swapped the inner, and mounted with my black fascia. I may have an idea on how to fix the tabs (want to rebuild the inners for the spare). I'll post pics if I can get it to work...
Are you concerned with #1 or #2 tabs:Thank you D!
Those plastic tab holders are small box shaped. I'm sure many will welcome your potential solution!
I even tried using a miniature staple to no avail.
If the vent is not seated into those 2 holders, sliding the vent louvers...no can do!
I'll give it a try!@Benica I see, #2, the tabs holding the fascia to the vent insert. I just looked through my "parts bins" and found this spare that someone fixed already.
This is probably the best way fixing these tabs, JB Weld, your vent insert will need to come out to do it right. Once fixed, should be good for many years to come.
