    Hi everyone.

    Recently got my c204 2012 plate.

    Noticed yesterday the roof liner (Someone please correct me on the right name if wrong? :) )

    One clip has snapped and obviously isn't sitting flush which is really annoying me.

    Does anyone know a quick FIX or link to buy after market ones as online I'm chasing my tail looking for them?

    I'll attach some images below, thanks.

    Thanks for any help.

    Think they are 'Water deflectors'.

    EPC has A 204 690 57 62 (left) and A 204 690 58 62 (right) for a 204.331 model without a panoramic sun roof and A 204 690 68 62 (front left) and A 204 690 71 62 (front right) for cars with a panoramic sun roof.

    Brill, thanks for your help. Just checked Merc charging £280 per side so off to ebay/breakers yard to see if I can get one.

    These German people seem to be offering new ones for around half that price Welcome to the online shop of the genuine car parts pro’s

    Never used them, so no recommendation, and it might be worth checking with them first to confirm they are original parts.

    PS Here's the WIS proc for replacing it (seems to be known as drip rail in WIS), looks straightforward, but I always find detaching from clips can often be a right pain.

    Don’t suppose you’ve had the windscreen replaced?

    They remove these when they replace the screen iirc.

    I had the roof wrapped in gloss back 3-4weeks ago, assume they incorrectly or damaged it. (they removed and tucked the extra down here.)

    Send them a message, will wait for a reply today.
