R171 headlight dust cap reference

Hi guys . Can anyone help with the reference number for the dust caps/discs on the headlight units on the R171 . They're the approx 12cm diameter black plastic caps that cover the access to the driving lamps for the headlights . I'm missing one and the other has a whole right in the middle of the reference number where the previous owner passed the cables for a HID kit .

Can be seen under the word " Headlight " in the photo in this post :

I was looking through my pictures hoping one of them would be clear enough to get a number off of. I don't see any kind of markings on it besides "open" and "close" though that I can make out on the - admittedly vague - image.

This is one of those things that it wouldn't surprise me if MB doesn't sell them separately, but I dunno...

Ah, that explains why I couldn't spot it . Well, I happen to have my headlights sitting in boxes at home, so I will check it tonight after I get home from work.
