Bottom Exterior Rocker Chrome Trim

Started by rparker, 07 October 2021, 05:01 AM


Good Evening all,
I notice that there is a rubber gasket between the lower exterior rocker aluminum trim and the body. The trim and gasket on my car is marginal at best, someone decided to secure it to the car using screws for some reason.

Anyway, What is the part number for the gasket? What is the part number for the trim piece?

Thank you in advance to those who can help out.

Attached is a photo I pulled off Ebay for illustration purposes.

Thanks for the info,
Located the 116-698-03-21 for the left pad, however no luck on the 116-698-03-20 for the right.

I'm just trying to understand the number range that Mercedes gives to their parts. A check on 116-698-04-21 however seems to give the part. It is proper confusing.

*Info from google search "Mercedes *part number*"

Also, the 116-698-03-80 & 116-698-04-80 are for Long Wheelbase models, do you happen to have them for the Short wheelbase models.
