SLK R170 door weather strip securing clips/buttons.

Hi to you all. I discovered recently that some ham-fisted previous owner of my 2004 SLK R170 had for some reason or other attempted the removal of the black weather strip on the drivers door (RHD) albeit the strips appear to be the same.

I turned out that my local MB Dealership would only sell me a complete replacement strip complete with the means of fixing/fitting it to the door for the sum of 18.00 plus VAT @20% - absolutely ludicrous and especially in this day and age of reduce excess and save energy and the planet.

After 10 minutes of sensible objection/conversation and getting absolutely no where I check out the item on the internet and found that there appeared to be a product on E'bay and held locally in Liverpool that would do the job albeit in packets of 10 for the princely sum of 2.49 including postage from parttechcc-limited
Order MERCEDES BENZ INTERIOR DOOR CARD MOULDING & TRIM PANEL RETAINER CLIPS 2 PART x10

Upon receipt my first inclination was that they allowed the weather/trim strip did not sit tight onto the bottom of the door;one was damaged whilst trying a fit/fix.

I then rang my alternative MB Dealer - Marshall of Preston,Lancashire and their very obliging senior sales member located the items for me and they were available two days later from Germany at 1.00 each so I went extravagant and ordered five (6.00 inclusive of VAT).

The items are as near the same as is possible and I now have 13 spare.
