2004 Mercedes ml350 sunroof seal replacement

I had to rip out my sunroof seal it twisted and cracked from the sun in Colorado. The auto parts store quotes $199 for a simple rubber line about 3 feet long? Can I use a less expensive replacement? thanks

The universal rubber line that is sold at Advance Auto Parts and Autozone will not work. Even though it may seem like it fits it will not create a proper seal and eventually you will have a leak. If that happens you will ruin the head liner as well.

What I would recommend is to either buy a used line on eBay or from a local junk yard. Ideally you should get a new one from the dealer cause used sunroof seals tend to crack from the sun just like yours did.

Good luck.

Get a new seal from the dealer. Everything else is a gamble.
