Looking good! It's surprising the number of these you see with the air conditioning data sticker missing from the centre square in the plastic panel over the radiator.

Yeah, I think some people don’t like stickers so pull them off. I like originality though, so am happy with it being there 👍🏻

I can probably dig the part number out for you. It annoys me, because whenever they are in for AC regas I have to look the capacity up instead of just looking at the sticker. You aren’t alone, probably 1 in 3 I see have no sticker. I wonder if they left the factory without. It seems too common to be a case of they have been peeled off or the panel has been replaced

If you could get the part number that would be amazing thanks! Yeah I want it to be as flawless as I can get it.

Thanks!

My LHS valve cover had a small hairline fracture in the back, so I decided to pull it off and replace it.
There was no way I could put a shiny new valve cover on an 8 year old engine bay though, so I decided to give her a tickle.
Looking well 😊

Bilt Hamber Surfex HD watered down at about 10% lightly sprayed in the engine bay with a foamer. Then went over everything with soft detailing brushes before rinsing off with water, blowing standing water out with the leaf blower and wiping everything over with microfibre cloths.
Once dry, I used Turtle Wax Citrus Matt Finish on Ringways recommendation just to give it a little extra pop. It did make a difference 👍🏻

If you’re confident in doing it yourself, then it’s no more than an hour from start to finish.
I bought the cover, complete with gasket and bolts from MB for £250 and then installed it myself.

I think you’ll be looking at about £600 for MB to do it, which is a good saving to put into the fuel tank instead 👍🏻

Yeah that’s not so bad. Mine was passenger side so a little trickier, but not too tricky 👍🏻
