Hood hinge spacer/shim/clip
« on: February 08, 2022, 03:45:54 »
Good evening. I am trying to find these spacers or shims that were on my hood hinge. My body guy says that although there 2 on on side and 1 on the other, the hood would still shift slightly from one side to the other when raising or lowering the hood. I am trying to see if this part is a Mercedes part or a something that was used by the PO to help stop the sideways movement. I suppose that a series of washers could be altered to serve the same purpose but wanted the group to weigh in before I made a mistake.  I have included a picture of the clip by itself, one on the hinge and one with the hinge on the car.

Thanks for any feed back.
