Needed: overhead console for 164L

Post by dnicholes » Mon Jan 04, 2016 8:52 pm

Greetings fellow 164 owners. I am a new member of the Register and wish to begin by asking for help to find an overhead console for my 1992 164 L with a sunroof. There seem to be none in North America (I am in Canada). The original is sticky with plastic goo and part has broken away. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello Dan,
You're looking for the part inside ( with the buttons) or the frame.

This is mine without a sunroof.

or post a pic of what you're looking for.
I know that the frame is a rare item, also the light unit with the sunroof buttons.

This seems to be a "candidate" part for 3D printing. You can probably still use yours (even if cracked) as a sample to be 3D scanned and then printed.

That was my thought already East, i'm already talking with a friend in Amsterdam that can scan and print it, but you know me.... i want it exactly as the original.... :D
Same as the clips on the inside of the 1e serie doorpanels and defrost tube connection.
