´97 SLK Steering column boot

I have the steering box off the car and now it would be the right moment to replace the broken steering column dust boot on the firewall. What might be it's part number and is it still available new?

I have not found any good parts sources for these cars so what is the right place in Europe to buy various clips, fixings and other essential parts needed when restoring these cars? Also, I have found it quite difficult to find good parts lists and exploded views which makes things a bit more complicated when restoring SLK.

You can find the part number there.
Then search online for it.

Exploded views are, unfortunately, the way things are.

I think there is at least one German site that is good for parts.
Sorry, but I cannot remember the address.

Thanks. I found the part number ( I guess, it looks different?) but the boot seems to be unavailable. These cars certainly are not the easiest to restore. You can easily get the usual service parts but otherwise you have to find suitable donor cars.

You may need to use German, or UK breakers yards.
Many have websites now.

Depends on whether part is specific to RHD/LHD.

For this part it needs to be German.
