Just curious if anyone has ever had any luck removing one of these and reapplying to a new windshield? The one on my old TE looks perfectly intact. I haven't a clue on how those things are put on. I was told they are an extra $10 on top of the new OE glass......they don't just come on there.

When the glass guy replaced my windshield with OE, he tried to remove it and reapply.....looks like a 8yr old's effort.

Just get a new sticker and apply to the new windshield before it gets installed.

New windshield already installed. Sticker option was at another place that couldn't give a firm bid....kept changing depending on who I talked to......so they didn't get the work.

Thanks, I'll try the eBay knockoffs I guess. Not that critical if it looks the part.

Ah be careful... Some of those Chinese parts can put 3 mpg on your gas bill and knock 2 seconds off your 0-60... :D

Not to mention they'll be able to track you on GPS and listen in on all your phone calls...

When did Benz start the signature labels? My 95 had it, no such label on the '89 windshield.

They've been on cars since the '70s if not earlier. Perhaps they removed it in prep from the '89.


edit: Part no on the "a DAIMLER-BENZ product" sticker is 115.... so that one likely debuted on W115.

OK that's weird. As far as I remember the family '75 W115 did not have it (I'll start searching the 45 year old photo's now)
I'm pretty sure my '89 did not have it when I bought it new either. I'll start searching for photo's there too.

Could be a US thing. The W115 was from France, the '89 was US but the dealer special ordered it for the manual transmission, so there are a couple other odd things about it (like the paint color does not match the color code for the year, it was introduced the year later in '90.

If my '89 is supposed to have it, I'll have to search for that label too. We'll correct that problem 30 years later :)-)) Space is now taken up by the MBCA srticker unfortunately.

I'm quite certain my 1977 240D did not have one until I installed one when I replaced the windshield a few years back. It was the original windshield and the car has been in the family since new. My later W123's and all of my W124's did have them though.

My 83 300TDT had one, '88 300e had one, 89 300e had one, 91 300TE had one, '92 400e has one, and '93 500e has one. When I had a 90 300CE, it did not but it had a replacement windshield.

As was stated above, the dealer ones now are clear like you pic...the OE stickers where white background with black printing. See Steve's post #5......and they were on the passenger side.
