rear window trim cover

I would like to replace the black rear window trim covers on my R171. I'm not having a lot of luck sourcing any in the UK. Any ideas please?

It's a very common problem on R171's. Have you thought of vinyl wrapping the plastic covers? A piece of gloss black or carbon wrap will only cost a few £'s. I need to do this with mine but haven't got around to it yet.

I never thought to try the main dealer £80 a pair. Probably plus VAT and in stock.

I recently replaced mine. Got them from my local dealer for about £65.

Fitted them myself following the thread on this forum. Not too bad a job, just need to take your time.

I did get the old ones covered with black vinyl wrap, but one side bubbled. Hence replacing them.

Members like Jeff have had good results with the carbon fibre wrap.
