Thank you Karl.
The windshield is not very bad. The dents are quite small and there are
not too many.
It is on a 1984 240D (probably the same as a 300 or 300D) and I suspect
replacement would cost quite a bit.
What do you think?
Here is a quote right off the internet:
I just did a quick search using this phrase: mobil windshield replace
It may be a 2nd.... it may be an off brand..... it may be a name brand.
You will need to ask the company you get ahold of.
MB does not make glass. The new cars are supplied by PPG.
On my 85 300D, all except the front was made by Sekurit.
The windshield is D C L. I have no idea who that was.
Some early makers were St. Gobains.
If you want the glass to have the MB star on it, you will have to order it
from your dealer. No star? Replacement aftermarket glass.
If you have a newer car with a rain sensor in the windshield, ONLY a new
windshield from the MB dealer will work. You cannot remove a rain sensor
from an old windshield and reglue it onto a replacement windshield. NO
matter what the glass shop tells you. It won't work!
Very interesting Karl.
My windshield has etched on it:
Hi 51V LIGHT
A F R
E - 00110
43 R 00178
Out of curiousity I'll check with that All Glass to see what its origin is.
Thanks again for your info.
