Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
Your choices on replacing the cowling seal and windshield seal are to find one thru a MB restoration site, or the salvage yards. If I can get the zipcode of where you live, I can go thru my national parts locator to find these closest to you
I believe he was referring to the windshield. Windscreen is the european term for it. yes, the windshield and cowling will need to come off for this.
Ok, let me see check my locator to see if the parts are anywhere in this country. Might have to end up going thru an European supplier.
still hunting the cowling seal
Not in the area you described it as being at on the passenger side.
Ok. Still looking for it and the cowling seal. None are showing in the national used parts locator so I am going thru all my sources that deal in older MB parts.
Looking at the diagrams, I dont see any wiring in that area. But you do have the hvac housing and ductwork, so if you are cutting out a bad area, you cannot go deep. The housing is about 1/16" from the firewall
you are welcome and will post back hopefully tomorrow with some good news on locating them
