hey guys, have a small issue. Check the photo, part of the silver thing has broken off from the front of the car.

Think it was the car cleaner guy being bit too harsh with it.

Does anyone know what its called? can it be replaced? how?

car is sl350 from 2012

thaks

There are some good pictures here… 03-11 Mercedes R230 SL500 SL55 Right Passenger Side Hood Vent Grille Grill OEM | eBay
It would appear there are 4 clips, 2 each side, near corners; the clip in below picture is broken.
There are also 4 holes for some kind of fastening.
These clips must be released from the underside of bonnet, I’d say its easy job if you knew how.

What’s the “button” in the middle of your broken grill for?

Might the 'button' be to house the a/c sun sensor?

it would have been good if just the silver spike thing could of been replaced instead of the whole thing!

Buy the part online (also check with the dealers for supply only price) and take to your nearest reputable/recommended indy for fitting, job done :)
