A-Pillar bolt cover

Hi all!!

I don't know how, but I've lost a small cover for a bolt in the A pillar.
I've marked the piece with a red circle in the following photo (not my SLK ):
(click to see the photo)

Does anybody know the part number for that cover? I visited the dealer twice and they are not calling be back with a solution.

I have to see a hole everyday when I go into the car...


Thank you so muuuch!!

Thanks for the reference!
Only one more question (I'll look for the part number to try to find it in Europe):

Right and Left are from the driver's perspective or looking the front of the car?

Thanks again!

If you can get an actual reference , post it , it may be available here . Normally the part will not come painted , primed at best i would imagine .

I'm tired to wait for the dealer. I ordered the piece 2 months ago.

So, I decided to buy the cover at getmercedesparts.com and paint it if necessary, but I realized they don't send anything to Europe

Do you know any other parts website where I can buy the damn "molding cap" or "bolt cover" for the A-pillar?

I can't believe the dealer is so bad and how difficult is to find mercedes parts in Europe or even a serial number!

Thank you so much!!!
Regards.

I've seen your PM curro.

Thank you so much to all of you. I'm sorry to disturb you with anything else than a search while sitting in front of your computer.

If I can't get the part number I'll go to the dealer, ask for it and order the stupid cap in other dealer.

jbanks15 You are faster than a lightning!!

If at any time we met, I'm going to pay as many beer as you can drink!!!!!!

curro101 Which year is your car? Is the original R171 or the restyling? If it's the original and you can use the VIN number of your car.

I need to go to the parking and it's later than 11PM right now. I can go tomorrow

In reference to my other question: Do you know any other parts website that sends orders to Europe?

Thanks and more thanks again!!
