Hi everyone,

Some days ago my grille came off (it had been damaged before) and I couldn't find it. I went to the MB place here in my city (Puerto Rico) and they want to charge me about $900 for that piece. Price looks outrageous for that little piece, so I'm trying to find if I can find something cheaper online.

My vin is WDBWK5EA0AF230363

I believe it is the part I need *Mercedes-Benz 171-885-12-53 GRILLE | Drive Auto Parts but I'd appreciate it if someone can confirm it, and perhaps recommend any other site where I could find it cheaper. Also, all the clips came off as well so I guess I have to get those too.

Attached a pic of the missing part :(

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much

Thank you very much! Yes looks like I have that model. I have tried to search online sites that sell that piece (I'm using the code 1718850053, don't know if that's right?). I have came across some sites, this one for example:

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-mercedes-benz-parts/lower-center-grille/1718850053/

But none of them indicates it is for SLK300?

If anyone could help me to find my piece I'd really appreciate it!
Thank you very much!

It doesn't matter the engine size it does the chassis only. (slk300 is 280 in some markets)

If the picture - you posted above - made of your car then you have AMG packet or somebody changed your bumper to an AMG one. The other important thing is your car facelift or not? The exact part number depends on these informations.

To be sure I advice ask for your data car here per your VIN.

Thank you! I got my data card: http://www.slkworld.com/vehicle-data-card/361946-data-card.html#post2952546

If you have the time, would you help me to identify what piece is exactly the one I need? I'm confused with so many options and so little knowledge of cars.

I don't think you're looking at the right part-per your datacard: See #200 below

part A1718851253 its a VENTILATION SCREEN that looks to be missing no?
Yes, but there are actually three items with the 200#, the cover A 1718851023 and the grill A 1718850053. I suppose the one I need is the grille?

Thank you!

171-885-12-53 is the grille you need. That is the grille for cars with the sports package which you have.
