This is the second time in a year that I have ran into this.
2014 Mercedes Benz CLA 250 rain and light sensor only. Calls for FW 03629. I ordered it in. Matched up the size when recieved, go to pull it and totally different set up at the rain/light sensor location. The third visor frit it different also. O.E. has a trapizoid shape sensor that requires a rain sensor pad. The FW03629 is the old standard purple plastic round rain sensor base with square shape on the windshield ( visually seen from outside of vehicle). The visor on the o.e. is 9 inches top to bottom the FW quite a bit shorter. Has anyone ran into this before and what is the fix?
We installed this windshield which was from Pilkington and the whole mirror/ ldws areas was 2" to the left picked up another one which was PGW and it was correct MEASURE THE MIRROR BRACKET AREA FROM EDGE OF GLASS TO MAKE SURE IT IS CORRECT
BEFORE WE CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!
