Do you mean the entire top cover of the CAN box? Or just the small round cap that covers the 38-pin diagnostic connector?
It looks like you can get the whole top cover from Parts.com:
http://www.parts.com/parts/1993/MERCEDES-BENZ/500E/?siteid=2&vehicleid=1195062&diagram=5715635
But it's not clear if the round cap is included or not...I suspect it is but you should confirm before ordering.

If you are referring to the plastic splash shield behind the CAN box, this was only used on very early models and is NLA.

Otherwise, you'll need to clarify what you're looking for...

Mine is aluminum in color and the black part looks to bolt on?

Jeff is correct. It's a black metal cover with gasket embedded, and a round plastic cap for the diagnostic port. A new one is ~$50 and looks like it may not include the gasket or cap. I bet someone could get one from a 400E in a Pick & Pull for half that...

We have an E420 in our pick and pull here that has that cap. I'd bet I can get it for $10-20 in good condition. I've removed it to check the computers and then bolted it back on :)

Where did the Battery In Trunk label come from?

That's factory applied. If yours is missing, you can buy the label and slap it back on...

Yep, they all had that sticker from the factory. It would be good to take exact measurements as to the location of this sticker for those who want to apply it.

I have seen this sticker removed from a number of cars over the years.

Eeeeek! And that reminds me ... that sticker is NOT included in this thread (http://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?560-500E-E500-Factory-Sticker-Reference-Guide).

Cheers,

My CAN's cover has no label...it's too stealthy for labels. :bartman:

I was thinking of going to that pick 'n pull next Saturday early AM. If I do, then I'll snag it and let you know. The car was several months ago up on top of two other cars, so I had to crawl to get it which wasn't fun (nor probably safe). It was stacked at the back of the lot (used to be on the ground) so I don't know if they were prepping it for crushing/scapping, or just getting it out of the way. In any case, I'll plan to head down there and if I get it, will let you know.

Definitely a US thing only in case Billy-Ray needs to jump start his pick-up :bnb: And of course the word "Trunk" says it all!
