For what model year Sprinter was this made?

Client brought in broken piece, and I just duplicated it. But believe it was a 2005, with power windows.

Thanks for getting back to me. The order page for your part says it is made out of bio-degradable PLA plastic. Is this the same material you used? Bio-degradable sounds like it will start decomposing right after installation. : - ) Wouldn't want that happening. Would you please clarify for me? Thank you.

I gave the guy both PLA and ABS, (90%infill). I recommended the PLA, since it would not be exposed to UV from sun,, and PLA is a harder plastic,, so it would be less susceptible to have a groove worn in to it, from moving back and forth in the rail-slide. I believe he also use a little bit of lithium grease also, to reduce friction.

Thank you for your input and knowledge about the different plastics. Your efforts in designing this part and communicating to a
neophyte are most appreciated.
Best regards.
