hi guys, I have designed and 3d printed some for my roof that slot in easy and take minimum effort to install. Let me know if your interested in having some. I too didn’t like the information from Mercedes who basically said you need a new roof assembly. These have been installed now for 4+ months and are still working well. View attachment 26225
I’d love to get a set! If you’d be so kind to send me a message with further instruction and how you got them installed. I’d greatly appreciate it!

Mossy2a is a splendid example of a very capable designer & 3D printer.

I recently got some custom 3D printed adapters to mate various power tools to a Festool vacuum from a similar very capable entrepreneur and they work great. Nice to see this segment continuing to grow.

Well done Mossy2a!

Hey :) i faced exacly same problem but the point is i don't know how to pop old ones out and put in new ones.. i need some guide for that. Can you please explain how did you get them out ?

My problem was started to happening when i open the roof and drove arround and heard some noises when i hit the hole on the road. So i went check the sunroof and i was right... On left side this thing is fixed on the right side it has space to move up down left and right... From then i am not opening the roof annymore 😔.

thought I would try and get a “fix” for this that isn’t crazy cost and can be done without removing the roof.

I spent some time designing a Replacement shoe that can be easily fitted from the top.

I used a new shoe to get the external dimensions and 3d printed some to install into my vehicle that has broken.

I have now had these fitted for 6 months and they were used throughout summer without issues.

if anyone wants any, let me know. I can give some details on fitting.
hi This would be great if i could get some of these from you ..im in France and i was quted 1600 euros to replace the Rails

Was driving last night with my sunroof open. Heard something crack and the found later plastic pieces of the shoe on the right side of the car. I can't find the part number or a replacement. Dealership is closed today for super bowl. The window is stuck on tilt and I would love to get this part replaced asap so I can close the window. Its been nasty weather in Chicago. pic is the non broken side. I need the bottom part that the "Y" looking piece fits in to.

GLA 250 2015. Base

2021 with less than 100 miles. Didn't hear a crack but couldn't close the pano all the way. sooo still happening....
