Spring clips, seats
« on: March 25, 2022, 02:48:16 »
Does anybody know if the plastic spring clips for mounting the chrome covers to the side of the seats are available somewhere?
I believe it’s part  # 1109881178
Thank you

You can get them at most of our suppliers. Authentic classics and I believe buds Benz. I just picked up two of them.

John, did you buy them Authentic? At over $60 each?  Can you advise?

I only see them in Europe for €8 but with companies that don’t make it easy to buy. 

Buds, doesn’t seem to have any.

Dirk, maybe you can 3D print them?  I could use them as well.

Try Mercedes Benz dealers. I bought them there recently, price was reasonable.

Just saw them at K&K for 11.30 as well.

Aslam, I was going to but at that price, it’s probably not worth it.

Perfect.   K&k did not show up on part number search.  I just ordered.  Thanks John & Dirk. 

Could not swallow over $60 each at authentic for this small piece of plastic ( and I have purchased many items at authentic as he does a good job of stocking hard to find items).

Pawel - Yes, I have checked dealers in USA --- Several show NLA.  I routinely check dealers first as many times, their discounted prices are lower than the vendors.

Sorry then to have mislead you - I bought a couple of them maybe 4-5 months ago when Sead kindly sold me the chrome covers... They were like $7 a piece.
