Reading through my handbook (E-class coupé) I noted that one of the service requirements is to clean the water deflector, I can't recall now whether it said the driver's field of view or the 'visible area'.

Is this the 'deflector' on the edge of the windscreen, ie on the A post, or is it the deflector on the sunroof/pano roof? Or is it somewhere else?

I suspect that it's something obvious but I'm curious.

I'm sure the dealer could take care of it for a small fee running into 3 or 4 figures :D

Does anybody know what it is?

There's a service bulletin relating to the 207

"LI83.10-P-048662 JAN10 VIN range A057743 to A154303, water deflector below the windshield can become detached."

So, appears to be the scuttle below the windscreen?

Its the trim directly below the windscreen. On some models there was an error in the moulding and the edge can pull away from its mounting and leave a gap
