GTC cooler screens

Morning all! Can anyone whos taken delivery of a 19 GTC see if the front left and right coolers have the protective screens on them? If so can you PM me the last 8 digits of your vin so I can order them as well or alternately see if the part numbers match up with the part numbers for the screens in the other thread!

Thanks in advance!

Yes they do have the screens. I was happy to see them when I got my car last week.

You may have already read my posts in the other topic area. We are continuing to experience a delay in obtaining information from MB US on this issue.

I ordered the screens and my dealer is currently waiting on MB authorization for what was to be a free install and parts for GTRS. I honestly dont know about GTCS.

The other unanswered question is do they install easily or does the front bumper have to be removed.

Look at my other post and youll see a picture of the screens and part number.

It take removal of the bumper and 4 hours labor to install them. I am not going out of pocket to do it.

Jerry,

Did you get anywhere asking MB via your dealership regarding paying for the install on our '18's?

Bish:

I was at my dealer today about the current status of this and the Track Pack. They have tried to obtain information from several sources and are unsuccessful at this point.

They advised that the front bumper needs to come off and the labor to install is 4 hours. The parts are about $20 each side. Some owners have gone out of pocket for the install but I won’t.

They recommend that I (we) contact the MB CAC (800) 222-0100 and request their help for current information and or a solution.

UPDATE 12/19 3:13pm Don’t bother calling the CAC for either issue. They just give you the same run around and NO useful information as usual.

Best Regards and Merry Christmas

Jerry

got them ordered. thank you for the quick response.
Also what did you mean by you're not going out of pocket to do it?

Once I got them in I was thinking of doing a quick write up unless someone already has written one up.

Parts are easy...

Install is about $300 up here if you know a competent body shop. Im gonna pay out of pocket that way I know its done and they are in. Not having any protection is just nuts.

These screens were to be installed free of charge for 2018 GTR owners. I don’t know about the GTC. I suggest you check with your MB Parts Dept to be sure they are designed to be installed on a GTC. The part number is the same for both screens for the ones I had ordered in for my GTR. p/n A 099 503 04 00

FOR THE GTR - Installation requires removing the bumper because the underside of the front end is enclosed and there is no other way in.

BTW: Why are you painting them black? They are already black from MB.

Regards

Can you describe in detail the installation process? In particular how the screens attach?

Thanks for any additional info.

will do, I actually took a bunch of pictures as I was installing them & wasn't sure if I should post it all on here or just start a new thread.. Im also in the process of posting on Instagram and possibly a quick video on YouTube as well. Ill send updates tomorrow. As for your question on how these screens attach, there are four clips 2 on top and two on bottom that snap on to the oil cooler itself. Hopefully this picture gives you a better idea.

clips snap on to the top & bottom of the oil coolers

for the cooler covers they were painted a black chrome color to better match the existing black chrome on the exterior of the vehicle. There have been other mods on the interior and exterior of the vehicle that have been blacked out with a black chrome finish paint. It is a very subtle difference from the black plastic finish it comes with, I will say that it looks better in person.

So it seems that >95% of the labour involved is in removing and reinstalling the bumper cover, as it should only take minutes to clip the screens to the oil coolers. Do I have that correct?

Actually no, removing the front end bumper cover and reinstalling is much less time than that. A good portion of the install is opening the enclosures surrounding the oil coolers themselves in order to free up enough space to get the screens to mount in and clip on to the coolers.

I need some clarity. So if I go to the dealer with my 2018 GTR. I can ask for and get this done at no charge? Anyone had any luck or success with this? Or do you just purchase them and you're on your own?

I, (we?) would love to see many more pix of your install process, especially where you have to fit the screens on the coolers once the bumper cover is off.

TIA,
