I have a 1986 190e, that I just got recently bought and am whipping
into shape. It's a very nice car and I am enjoying it's ride and gas
mileage in particular (my other car is a 1968 buick GS).
Anyhow, I am dealing with a sunroof issue, that seems to come down to
the fact that the teleflex assembly (the cable that pushes and pulls
the roof) has come apart and is stuck in the tube. This really is a
pain and would/will require major effort to disassemble...
I notice that the headliner cover for the sunroof has a punch out for a
manual sunroof opening locking setup.
I would love to convert this to a manual setup, as it would avoid the
whole teleflex issue, and then I could sell my good sunroof motor :~)
My local wrecking yard which specializes in MB's says that these cars
were only sold as motor driven sliding roofs in the US. Is this true?
Does anyone have ideas on where I could buy the manual roof handle assembly?
Thanks for any useful info...
