Keith. Semi - retired Surveyor and builder.

Grew up in South Africa, but now happily living in the UK after eventually getting used to the weather.

Car - 2009 Silver facelift 280 SLK Q-Tronic only used weekends and on vacation(during the week I drive a van)

Interests - Military aircraft and travelling in Europe and the USA.
Following my rugby team the Springboks.
Drawing the world's attention to the decimation of endangered
animal species, mainly by countries in SE Asia.

My question - I have noticed that one of the triangular black glass/plastic
panels on either side of the Vario roof seems to be discoloured
or has lost part of it's coating.

Can this be renovated, and if not, how difficult is it to replace
the panel ?

Many thanks

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

Hi Keith, and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

There's nothing I can add about the black panels because, as usual, Jeff and Craige have already covered it (pun intended)! :tu:
