1999 Mercedes-Benz ML320 117,000 mi,
air deflector arms - plastic retaining clips broken
1999 Mercedes-Benz ML320 55,000 mi,
Plastic piece which anchors the metal control arm of the sunroof deflector broke causing metal arm to bend as sunroof was closing. I removed the bent arm and held down the deflector by hand to get the sunroof closed. Replacement parts would have been over $200 but dealer offered to remove the deflector for free. The sunroof works almost as well without the deflector.
Mine also broke..After leaking water through the sunroof..
