Hello are they just wanting to do the lifters or the rods or the whole assembly ? Cause it's rare to do the whole assembly.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The first guy said I needed to replace "the lifting bridge", the parts guy said it is rare to only need to replace one side so he ordered both sides just in case. He never mentioned anything about the rods.
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok what is the problem that made them want to change that ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My sun roof got stuck open. It had been making a clicking sound every time I opened it on the drivers' side. When it got stuck open, I took it by the dealership and they looked at it, got it to close and told me I needed the lifting bridge replaced
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The bridge was visibly cracked on the drivers' side of the sun roof
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok good thing I asked. Cause when you say lifting bridge first thing I think of is the lifter bridge in the engine. Ok so do they want to remove the sunroof and replace both sides I take it ?

Ok. What did they quote you ? I can compare it to our dealer in the morning.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I haven't gotten their quote, my usual mechanic told me he couldn't do it that it should be the dealer. I just want to know about how much to expect this repair to cost through the dealership
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Oh ok makes sense. I'll get you a guesstimate. Since they can slightly vary from dealer to dealer.
