    Does anyone know any detail on this sunroof recall that's in the news just now?

    Does this affect pano roofs?

    As the article references deterioration of the bonding material, I would say that it does refer to pano roofs.

    From the pdf document, it looks to affect the 203, 209, 211 and 219 series cars.

    This seems USA driven.....Let's see if anyone in the UK gets a letter 'on or after the 14th of February'. More likely those affected in the UK are going to have to chase up MB as is usual for most issues, and not just MB related. The VW emissions scandal comes to mind..USA..sorted , EU and UK ? still being dragged through the courts etc.

    I might wait for my letter, might give me time to grow my hair back, it's been gone for years :p

    Wow - this goes back to 2001. I'll be absolutely astonished if MB do that in the UK.

    Wonder how many roofs they'll need to change in the US - this could be extremely expensive. Perhaps MB can recover the cost from whoever makes the roof?

    209 and 219 didn't have pano roof even as an option, only traditional sunroof. Don't think 203 did either, but I could be wrong on that one.
