What is it?
This is a complete Burl Wood Gear Selector Panel for the Mercedes-Benz R107 SL. It is our own, exclusive reproduction of the now unavailable Mercedes-Benz originals.
This panel is ONLY suitable for SL with heated seats, electric windows and electric mirrors.
Where does it go?
The interior wood of an R107 SL and SLC dashboard can be split into 6 distinct categories:
- Dash strips
- Heater panel
- Ash tray cover
- Gear selector cover
- Gear knob
- Console box
This panel is a key part of the dashboard, being the elegant gear stick surround.
Why do I need it?
Over time your interior wood may become faded, damaged or go missing entirely. In harsh climates it is likely to fade, and being a delicate part of the car can become chipped or cracked through day to day use. Replacing your interior wood makes a big difference to the appearance of your car; after all, if you intend to spend time using your car, you will be staring at the interior wood often!
What are my options?
We also offer this as part of a complete Burl Wood package deal, including dash strips, heater panel, ash tray cover, gear selector cover, gear knob and console box.
How do I fit it?
Of all the wood panels on an R107, replacing the gear surround panel is the most involved of all. It requires removal of the ashtray to expose two screws that hold the panel in to the console. At the rear there is a locating peg which means you MUST slide the panel backwards before attempting to lift it away from the console.
Why not replace your gear knob while the gear selector surround is removed? It’s just four more screws. Browse our range of gear knobs here.
What else do I need to know?
This panel is only suitable for R107 SL with heated seats, electric windows and electric mirror.
As with all our ‘exclusive’ products, we build to our own specification - if it isn’t good enough to put on an SLSHOP car, we won’t sell it.
