    Rear bumper end cover NLA in Europe

    Hi,
    I wanted to buy the two end covers for the rear bumper (1248851623 and 1248851523), it seems that they are non available

    I found them on parts.com, but they don't ship to Europe and we can pay only with us cards... globalization is still not perfect...

    Can sbody help me to buy / ship them or any idea where to find in Europe?

    Thnx

    Contact Tom @mbusa classic center he can ship to Europe. If he can't get them nobody can.

    Re: Rear bumper end cover NLA in Europe

    If they are truly NLA in Europe, you aren't going to get them from USA either - at least not brand new. Remember that just because a web site (like parts.com) shows a PRICE, this does not mean they are AVAILABLE. If the part is NLA, parts.com will happily let you place an order & take your money, and the order will be cancelled.

    This is the first I've heard of these end/joint covers going NLA... if accurate, that is depressing.

    Yup. These are also NLA Stateside. Perfect item for replicating with a 3D printer, though.

    Bueller? Anyone?

    I believe they are just showing a price, not inventory - same as this US vendor, or this one. It isn't likely they actually have them on the shelf, but you can contact them and ask.

    MB Classic Germany shows "not available".

    This company have a very exact storage system. They have never failed me on this. When they have non in stock and the item is in fact NLA, they show no price or just "no longer available". But when they do show in stock even if the item is NLA with M-B, they seem to have them in-house. It's worth a try atleast!

    Cool! If they really do have some on the shelf that would be fantastic... and will probably sell out quickly.

    They will have to do another run of those things. They get old and stiff and fall out. Are the 500 ones difference than the reg 124 parts in a significant way?

    I attempted to email them via their contact window, it won't send,

    But just read this on their home page

    " In regard to delivery : We have the same sources for the parts as any other Mercedes-Benz-partner , So if other Mercedes-Benz-partners told you that the part is not available, we will also not be able to deliver this part. We only did not yet get the information from the factory..
    Any questions? Your Mercedes-Benz Parts-team "

    Not a final answer really, but it appears the question on availability has come up before...

    Also, (if truly available from this source) VAT should not apply to sales to North America. Not sure if the website recognizes this...another question to ask.

    Somewhat aside from this topic, I still find it hard to believe that even after all this rat creep alfred_e_newbama.jpg has done to destroy the resiliency of the Nation, a Euro is still more valuable than a Dollar.

    Re: Rear bumper end cover NLA in Europe

    I don't think they ship to the US. But the OP is in France from what I can see from his profile, so he should be fine ordering from them. As I stated before, I've bought from them for many years, and they have never failed me yet. A very large and reliable company in Germany, they've been a Daimler-Benz dealer since 1936.

    But still, there's of course a risk that their stock numbers are incorrect, and that they don't have the covers. However, they will not take your money and run. Also you can pay with Paypal upon check-out. If I where in Europe and in need of those covers, I wouldn't hesitate one bit to place an order. Absolutely nothing to lose!

    The 036 items are about twice as wide.

    So apparently they have the same answer as anybody else-NLA! My guess is they do not have inventory.

    Re: Rear bumper end cover NLA in Europe

    Ok so here is the progress. I have had the dimensions scanned and a 3D file made. The file is still being refined and it will be very close to the original dimension wise.
    The materials:
    I have 3 options:

    1. Rubber with the right hardness to match the original: this one will be reasonably priced.
    2. 3D printed Polyurethane-I will add picture for this one. Fit will be good it will not be as refined as the original. This one is also reasonably priced and by that I mean a bit above the original.
    3. Molded polyurethane (TPH). This one will be closest to the original material but it will cost about $400 per pair (that's CRAZY!).



    I thought we may go with the rubber option and the more people order the cheaper it will be.

    That's excellent work!

    If it all works out as you plan, then I'm in for one for each side - as long as you can ship to the UK (at my cost, naturally). I'll go with whatever material works best for you; from your comments I guess rubber will be the most practical?

    Re: Rear bumper end cover NLA in Europe

    I am now having my 3D guy put some final touches on the source file and then I will have him make a sample with the 3D printer to test it for fit and quality. If I like it I will have some made from actual rubber. Hope that sounds good for everyone. It will take some time but I will keep everyone posted. I will start making a list with requests and I would ship to the U.K. At straight shipping cost

    Many thanks for your efforts on this!


    I am in for one set, and I prefer rubber material supposed it's not Chinese rubber which decompose in a couple of years.
