Hey all.

I’m new to the forum so apologies in advanced if this has been asked or answered before.

Basically, my panoramic roof rail guide snapped and I took it to Mercedes and they said it would need a whole new rail and to be safe they would replace both sides and a couple of other bits. I got quoted circa £650 in parts and 5 hours labour at £180 ph. Unfortunately it’s a little bit out of my budget at the moment.

I’ve been looking online for parts myself to see if I can save a few pennies. I spotted a whole roof replacement only, however, the seller doesn’t seem to think it will fit.

My question is, will a w205 220D 2016 C class saloon roof be the same as a W205 250D 2016 saloon, I spoke to another dealer and I asked them this and they said “it should do”. My understanding is that it’s just a different spec’d engine.

I didn’t want to dump £400 into replacement parts, finding out I was wrong.

A little guidance would be wonderful!

Thank you 😊
 
I'm pretty sure the roof will be the same on all C class models of the same mark.

Check the part number for both cars.

 
The link above didn't work for me, however, providing both are 4-door saloons, ie one isn't a 2-door, then I'd be very surprised if they weren't the same. As I don't know the part numbers and not having done it myself, I can't say 100% that it will fit, but I can't think of any reason why they would differ. Body parts, lights etc. etc. are the same.

I know both are quoted as W205 but people (ie the sellers) sometimes get the codes wrong, ie calling a C205 a W205 etc., hence it's worth double checking.
