If you’re looking to restore or repair the interior of your beloved SL, then SLSHOP’s own Mercedes R107 handbrake cover could be a valuable part of that process.
The Mercedes R107 handbrake cover has been developed by SLSHOP after the original parts from Mercedes became impossible to source brand new. The company undertook an intensive period of research and development in order to manufacture the part which satisfies a significant gap in the market for SL owners.
The SLSHOP version can be fitted on to original factory mountings to ensure your SL looks as authentic as ever.
The German car manufacturer no longer produces the replacement handbrake cover itself, meaning that any owner who wishes to restore the interior of their existing car would have been left wanting.
It’s not only full restorations that can capitalise on the availability of the new replacement Mercedes R107 handbrake cover. From more than 10 years of experience in handling and repairing Mercedes SLs, SLSHOP has noted a high number of handbrake covers that need replacing due to cracking, splitting and discolouration through age.
Specifications of the Mercedes R107 handbrake cover
The new SLSHOP Mercedes R107 handbrake cover is designed to replace your original part. It fits over the handbrake to hide the mechanism and attached to the original mounts behind the centre console of your SL.
SL Shop can supply it with three factory-looking countersunk washers allowing it to be fitted to the same holes on the transmission tunnel that your original part would have been attached to.
The cover is made from a hard-formed plastic which offers greater protection against wear and tear. The colours and textures of the original part have then been replicated on top of the plastic so that it seamlessly fits in to the existing interior of your Mercedes R107 SL.
Interior colours on Mercedes R107 SL models differed greatly depending on the specification to which the car was ordered. This has been accounted for in the development of the part, with no fewer than 12 different colours of the Mercedes R107 handbrake cover available to buy.
The colours currently available to order are Cream, Black, Grey, Blue, Beige, Brazil Brown, Mid Red, Avocado, Olive, Palamino, Henna and Saddle/Tabacco. Some shipping times may differ depending on stock levels.
The handbrake cover fits classic R107 Mercedes-Benz SL models manufactured from 1985-1989. It fits engine sizes 300, 420, 500, 560, and both left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles. The handbrake covers can be used in early models with minimal adaption.
The Mercedes R107 handbrake cover is exclusive to SLSHOP and can be fitted yourself easily by using a Phillips screwdriver.

As part of our Exclusive Mercedes Parts range, we have developed this cover to provide restorers and owners the option to revive their vehicle’s interior to it’s original, if not better condition. As a core section of your cabin, a broken, cracked or faded cover will detract from the overall atmosphere of your interior. We recommend you consider changing this section with our replacement parts.
