Cowl to Hood Weather strip / Gasket
« on: 23 September 2021, 12:03 AM »
Hello all,
Can some kind soul help me with the part number for the Cowl to Hood gasket looking item. I've tried to search online however nothing comes up. On the attached diagram it is part "440". I've also attached a picture of the part at the bottom. Unfortunately there isn't any part number stamped on it.

And on that same note, can anyone here share where they can get online part catalogs for classic Mercs like our? I've used Iauto.lt which isn't complete and the official MBPartsWorld one only lists vehicles from 1984. Tried a few others to no avail too.

Thank you in advance.

Awesome! Got it. Now to order and hope they actually have the part :D

Also got a good reference in the form of ilcats.ru.

Cheers.

I'm finding that this item is mostly NLA, am wondering if anyone has used any other model's seal in place of this? Went down to the store to have a look at the W123 unit and while it fits, there is a flap that extends a bit high into the hood while the W116 one largely flat. Attached are pics for reference.

I was wondering if anyone successfully used any other model's part in place of the W116 original.

Thanks.

The W124 part doesn't look too different. I have both in the garage, will check how they compare.
1993 "Pearl Blue" W124 280TE
1988 "Arctic White" W124 200T
1979 "Icon Gold" W116 450SE (history, resto)
