Salvage yards should be able to pull one from a wrecked SLK.

When I was looking for a certain part for my SLK I contacted customer service at LKQ online (they have 100's of yards around the country) and asked them to provide me with the VIN for each SLK in all of their many yards around the country. They emailed the list to me and then I pulled data cards on each which told me which cars originally were built with the parts I was looking for. Then I call the individual salvage yards that actually had the subject car and asked if the needed part was still on the car.

Good luck.
