This product is suitable for Mercedes-Benz SL and SLC models from 1971-89.
Where does it go?
A well documented Achilles heel of the Mercedes-Benz SL 107, rust in the bulkhead can cause water ingress in the cabin as well as electrical problems. Poor fitting of the Heater Blower Motor Cover, or failure of the seal, will result in water getting down into the plenum chamber, which over time will rust through the bulkhead.
For many years, rust in this area would deem a car beyond economical repair, which is why we developed this panel. See our photos to see just how much damage water in the plenum chamber can cause
Why do I need it?
If you are restoring or repairing an SL or SLC with bulkhead issues, this kit could be the answer.
Our kit is designed to remedy this common issue by improving on the original design. The buttresses are also designed with channels that feed the water to the drainage points to prevent build up and corrosion.
What are my options?
There are 5 additional products to think about when addressing this area of the car:
Blower motor seal
Blower motor cover
Blower motor cover seal
Blower motor resistor/control unit
We recommend replacing all of these items when remedying the bulkhead.
