Our 2003 SLK32 AMG has the material that helps with wind noise that goes between the headrests. Unfortunately, it is now in tatters, and my Georgetown, TX dealer doesn't know how to replace it.

Ideas? Thanks!

Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

There is usually some on ebay.
They come and go quite quickly though, and also sometimes have a variety of descriptions
so try wind deflector, blocker, draft stop, fabric, mesh.

The reason that we ask you to update vehicle/location details is to save repeating
the same information every time that you ask a question.
Also, this site is truly worldwide. That can matter when you ask for help and information.
Are you looking for a bonnet, or a hood, a boot, or a trunk? Makes a difference.
Driving on the left, or the right?

First...find a different dealer. This one is lacking intelligence, or just doesn't want to fool with you because there isn't enough profit for them.
Why not research a WindRestrictor, instead. I have one and it is a big "cut above" the stock mesh one.

On the other side of the world,,,,
Recently I asked them same question of a dealer, and checked with a trusted independant parts supplier, and both said ,,,no stock.
Don't know if it's temporary till next batch is made, or permanent.
