|Surprisingly common to miss the trim that snaps in here|
on an E320 Cabriolet
So there's this innocuous rectangular piece of black plastic trim that fits around the opening for the soft top latching mechanism on a Cabriolet. It's purely cosmetic and clips into the tonneau cover towards the rear of the car. (Owners would be wise to note the part number: 124-757-03-08.)
|The backside of the missing trim.|
Note clips on either side.
I was always very pleased that my Cabriolet had this part that's often missing on these cars, but one day that changed. After a weekend drive, I noticed it was gone. I assume the piece must get yanked out of its spot while lowering the top, only to be immediately blown out of the car by the wind.
|(Sigh of relief)|
When your piece of trim inevitably goes missing, call Tom at The Classic Center. (Better yet, order two.)
