    WTB: S124 third brake light assembly

    Looking for a S124 (aka, W124 wagon) third brake light assembly in good working and non-cracked condition.

    Prefer in order: palomino, date, black, parchment, beige, and then any other color

    Thanks,

    Had my hands wrapped around what appeared to be a pristine Parchment example a few weeks ago, but alas it crumbled to dust (literally) whilst in my hands. ☹️

    Damn sun.

    Pretty sure they are NLA in all colors for a few years now. I had to troll the interwebs to find a NOS light, pay a princely sum, and then paint it to match. Photos here. Interestingly, the old one was already a replacement, that had been painted. So the new one I installed was at least the 3rd unit on the car.

    Another option I was considering was the lamp delete, as the rear center brake lamp was a USA-only (or, North America-only?) thing. Europe had a blank cover for the wiper pivot. I didn't pursue this after locating the NOS lamp though.

    If you do find a new one, use some sort of UV-blocking window tint to make it last. Use clear tint if you don't like dark tint. I put 3M ColorStable all around.

    Did you check with Captruff? He usually has items like this hanging around.

    Interesting, it just the back cover ears that crumble correct? When junking, I always look for a crunch garage queen. That's where my spate came from.
