Mine started to disintegrate/crumble away - the windscreen end of the under-bonnet that sweeps from the battery to the fuse box on the W124, As it is/was quite thick I was wondering if anyone else had replaced it and if so what did they use or would recommend?

The original replacement is about £30 from MB.

If you go for the diesel version it covers the whole underside of the hood rather than just half.

I was recently quoted 80 gbp for the same thing by a main dealer, which I hope included vat, but can't be certain of that. If you can get one for 30, post the contact details for the dealer you use!

They are nearer £80. Did ours last year. Make sure you cover the engine with an old sheet or something before removing the old one. It will disintegrate into lots of small pieces. The dealer will also sell you an appropriate glue. I am sure there are plenty of other glues but I could not be bothered looking around.
Ours is petrol and the replacement cover the whole hood.

Yep, got one for my coupe, you get a free foil patch intended for the Turbo :thumb:

Do you have a part number for this? The shorter version.

No it wont cause any damage without it. I was told it was partly fire retardant as well as noise reducing but this might just be flannel.
Never seen a short one. I think they all have the foil patch now.
