    Got a CLK280 from 2007 and noticed 2-3 clips holding the heat shield are missing but also the shield itself shrunk? it's not aligned to those clip holes anymore and I couldn't even bring it closer to install new clips, it won't stretch.

    Any idea how to fix this/find a replacement ( I imagine buying a used one will have the same issue due to age etc?)

    Has enyone tried those 1x1.4M Aluminum Foil Heat Shield Sound Insulation Car Hood Noise Control Mat Pad 7703636433176 | eBay
    I'm not sure how well it would work given that the adhesive might only last for a short while?

    Cheers

    Have you tried your local dealer might not be as bad as you think.

    It's really not that bad, this is how far it's misaligned

    I'm more curious if anyone tried the aftermarket one I posted earlier - would it be worse than leaving the old one as is?

    I think the aluminium-lined one might look quite neat but I'm concerned about the adhesive and the foam (don't think this has heat resistance, just the foil has?)..

    It is a sound deadening panel , can be purchased from the dealer , along with the proper contact adhesive as used in the factory.

    Pic of my car, the holes are quite a way out, I cannot see a new one lasting too long, the engine does generate a lot of heat. Needs a clean too !

    As above they should be available from MB - I got a new one for my 1997 R129 a few years back.

    This looks good Gaz, what is your experience like with this, does the adhesive hold well?
