MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S I 116 450SEL seat upholstery kits

Hello. I just bought a 1976 450SEL in which the interior is excellent with the exception of the drivers seat leather (beige) being cracked and split in several areas. I see replacement 116 leather seat cover kits on Adsit for 695. Does anyone have any experience with the Adsit leather seat cover kit or can recommend either another replacement kit or an upholstery shop within 100 miles of Baltimore

Hello John I do not have personal experience with Adsit but I have heard some horror stories over the years about their return policies from others. That being said the 695 price is pretty decent assuming that includes both bottom and back seat covers. GAHH has a good reputation though its certainly not a bargain house. Looks like bottom and back covers for your car in leather would run about 800 from them. 1976 - GAHH Online Store World upholstery is another well respected supplier of replacement interiors. Looks like you have to call them for prices.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Hatch Door Actuator Plastic Stuff Warning dont do this Easy to Change.. Thanks raybenz..

First of all thanks raybenz for your comments. It made me realize that the actuator was broken.. Warning... Never open your hatch door at the same time you are unlocking the doors. After checking and testing the broken hatch lock actuator assembly I found that if you try to open the hatch door at at the same time you are unlocking it it makes the electro magnet mechanism pull very hard on a plastic

Tree panel attachment parts very well without breaking them. It was also able to easily pull out the two [plastic] pins ... at the top of cover where it slopes up around the window frame. I got the tool at Advanced Auto Parts for about 8. YMMV. The price is likely higher at your store as I live in a very low cost state. I got a box of 10 of the plastic Christmas Tree panel attachment parts (aka mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 LeatherMagic Upholstery Dye - Awesome

The one detailing issue Im constantly battling with (and losing) is keeping the Stone (very light tan) interior bits looking fresh. No matter how much cleaning I do the soft upholstery (welting around the door frames tops of the kick panels the door map pockets) looks tired and dirty.

and dirty. Even when its clean it looks dingey and grayed out. Id used LeatherMagic leather dye on my prior S to repair minor wear marks and defects on the seats and it works great.

Today I tried their upholstery dye (color matched they have all mercedes

Curious how the upholstery die looks after 1 week Considering doing this but would like to see if IYO the die treatment seems to attract dirt and dust...The door pockets and lower kick panels and the seat belts are the most grunge attracting areas of the car(mine is that Java color like your old car).

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Leather Upholstery - What Kind

I just bought a 2003 E320. On the original window sticker it says Stone Leather 1440.00. Is that just leather inserts on the seats or is that the full leather upholstery I could not seem to find this answer in the the older threads. Just wondering. Robert

Likely inserts on a 320 if you have the perforated and smooth material on the doors it is inserts if the material is gathered it is leather.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS B I 245 Alpaca grey upholstery

I have my B for 7 months now and I recently noticed that there is a difference between the color of the door handles and the color from the dashboard (they do have the same texture though). They are supposed to be both the same nuance of grey.. I asked the dealer about this he also noticed the difference and he said he will see how other cars with grey upholstery look like and let me know. Has anyone

Objects with the same colour reflect light differently when they are of different materials or shapes so maybe that is what you are seeing. Bill I just went out to take a closer look. With the doors shut I notice a slight difference in shading but with the doors open and more ambient light coming in there is no difference that I can see. Bill krrokkx ( we do need a better name to call you ) I would

They seem the same on mine but I am not sure what you mean by door handles with regard to upholstery.

Bill F I also notice the difference in nuance especially in the shade rather than in direct sunlight. Human eyes contrast perception is affected by ambient light (like for example in the Purkinje effect ) and this means that although perceived more in the shade the difference still exists At least I am somehow glad that I am not the only one perceiving this difference but still intrigued if it was

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Cleaning The Stupid Fuzzy Door Panels

I would like to hunt down and kill the guy who decided to use that felt-like fabric on the door pockets. Ive asked several detailers for tips and they all suggest not getting it wet and not touching it in any way. Ive finally found a process that works. Youll need a very soft bristle toothbrush some spray foaming upholstery cleaner (Woolite etc) a glass of water and a Shop Vac with an upholstery brush

people). Back in the day (when S class was special) all the leather and all the interior was made of premium materials. If you drove an S class 20-30 years ago you would know what I mean. They say well what do you expect your car is a base model.....frankly I expected an S class This should be called something else. I think (anyone is welcome to jump down my throat now) that the quality of the mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Darn Upholstery Peeling OFF

The upholstery on the interior door bar used to pull the door closed once inside is coming off. I am thinking of using some type of adhesive or glue to reattach the material. Any suggestions

Welcome to the forum John. Please take a moment to complete your user profile available via the User CP link. My door pulls are doing the same thing. I intend to cover them in leather but havent had the door panels off recently. The door pulls themselves sell for about 75 each which isnt extremely obscene but will likely eventually do the same thing again.

The door pull is the handle on the inside of the door panel which you use to shut the door from the inside. Mine are mostly covered in black vinyl.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C III 204 How to differentiate controlling volume of Navi Voice vs Music Volume and upholstery

Often times i find myself confused when I am trying to control the navigation voice and the music volume. How do you select the appropriate one to control. Also i have black leather interior and I was wondering how to properly address those white marks that seem to magically appear over time. They are on the upholstery and doors.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Door panel vibration

I know this topic has been brought up before but with no real solutions besides taking it to the dealer and using chapstick or water. Surely there is a better more efficient way to solve this problem. I have vibration in all 4 door panels more specifically the map pocket in each of them. I am wondering if anyone has done anything else besides those two things to solve the problem. I was thinking about

Yes I forgot to post my solution to this. I used upholstery foam and shoved it between the door panel and the map pocket. I can now crank up the volume with no fears of embarrassing vibrations. You wont even need to completely remove the door panel to do this just unclip the bottom.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C III 204 No garage door opener 2009 C300

Hi guys Just bought a CPO 2009 c300. Very excited about the purchase but as I look over the car now I am realizing that there is no garage door opener. I have test driven and looked at so many of these that I assumed they all had it. From what I remember they are three buttons at the bottom of the rear view mirror. On my car I see the outline of three buttons but no actual buttons. Is it seriously an option Cmon.. thats absolutely ridiculous. Am I just looking at the wrong place Thanks

One other option. I have a 2006 Corvette. You had to get the 2nd level option package to get the garage door opener and I didnt want the other crap it came with so I didnt get it. The garage door opener in the Vette is built into the visor. It was so easy to add. I could have paid 200 for the visor with it built in but instead I bought the Homelink module off of Ebay. I think the one I got came out

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Back to dealer broken door....

well im heading back to dealer on Thursday to get the rear door fixed for the 4th time. Just wondering what you thoughts where on how many time i should get them to fix it before i call mbusa and see what they have to say. I feel that need to know they have dealerships out there that can not fix the little things on the car. But at the same time i donÂt want to PO the dealership because the closest

I use a non silicon rubber and vinyl spray lub on my squeaky back door it lasts a month or so. dont use anything else as it will pick up dirt and dust and leave marks on clothes.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Do you have rattling door pockets

If so I found a great solution this last weekend. My sons ML430 has a great stereo but over the years the door panels have been gradually falling apart. The pockets are just kinda resting in the panel with gaps all around and a lot of flex. Also a few of the door panel clips that secure the panel to the door are brokenmissing. Recently I noticed quite a bit of vibrating coming from the door panels

I just stuffed upholstery foam in between the map pocket and the door panel and everythings quiet now. (Of course my map pocket wasnt about to fall out either.)

Of course it is wise to check the compatibilty with the old decoration vinyl or invisible area first.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C III 204 Upholstery work

door panels were doing tomorrow. Front seats are in but didnt get around to taking pics installed. Will do so tomorrow.

Heres the rest of the pics including door pics I promised. Originally I was going to do lower section where the nook is and continue wrapping the arm rest but those sections get dirty fast and didnt do anything to address the worse part of MBTex which was the big panel above the arm rest. This makes it slightly more OEM 2-tone as you can see from this pic The double stitch continues in a line from

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Headlamp Washer Heated Seat & Door Lamp need attention

Hello all My wife & I received our 2000 Wagon on Monday and are slowly finding minor things wed like to fix. A few of them have me a bit puzzled 1) The lamp that illuminates the door latch in the drivers door isnt illuminating. I assume there is a bulb inside the door panel that is accessed by removing the cover behind the latch but Im not clear on how to remove that cover without breaking it. I assume

I was actually editing my post while you were replying. I think the cushion cover with element was between 500-600 if I remember correctly. IMO a company like MB should build their cars in such away that electrical components can be replaced without replacing upholstery. Its so unnecessary that it almost feels like a scheme. I know the thread youre referring to. Someone did use a W202 element but I

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Door frame wear

I have a 2005 E320 CDI. I have a wear spot that has developed on the rear door frame where someones big butt rubs on the way in and the way out. Does anyone know of guard or cover or something that will fix cover or protect this area I knowI could loos a few pounds.

Ive seen more than one 211 with this problem it is common. I suggest you go to an upholstery shop specializing in seat repair if you cant find one call your dealer and ask the service manager who they sent their seat repairs to if they say they dont repair seat covers call your local chevy or chrysler dealer and ask the same question. These shops do amazing work for a very reasonable price ask them

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Leather Door Panel Inserts from PP arrived AT LAST...

Hey guys I finally received my leather door panel inserts from Performance Products. I ordered them back in October and just received them now. I kid you not I wasnt particularly happy about that as the strength of the Canadian dollar has fluctuated up and back down since that period so they ended up costing me more than they shouldve as PP didnt bill them immediately. I suppose thats a good or bad

Thanks very much for that I thought that was the case from your previous pictures. Ill definitely follow suit. Yes it definitely took a ridiculous amount of time. I told the guys at my dealer about it in October and they kept bugging me as to why it took so long. The running joke was that the cow had to be conceived in Germany grew up big enough for them to slaughter it for the leather and then it
