230SL Soft top lid molding piece
« on: May 26, 2024, 17:17:23 »
1967 230SL soft top lid interior molding filling piece.
Little clip where the two molding pieces butt together in the middle.
MBZ part #1137500082
I can’t seem to find this anywhere.
Help!

The part you are looking for (1137500082) was installed only in the very early 230SL cars until Vin 001350 and then eliminated.

Thank you for the response.
We have a late (1967) 230SL.
So… The two pieces of chrome molding just butt together in the middle at the base of the upholstered horseshoe?
I thought I had lost the little chrome clip.

Apparently the factory kept losing the clip too... ;)
Rather than fix the problem, just eliminate it.
