Bosch distributor cap (with hooks?)

I'm replacing the distributor cap. I need the standard one with hooks.

Part number is A 000 158 34 02 (6.9 engine)

I found the Bosch cap 0 290 004 500 (, but I don't see the hooks (probably hidden under the cap?).

Do they all have hooks? Or do some of them have threaded bolts or a different locking mechanism? I want to be 100% sure before I place my order.

i am 100% positive that this one has the hooks , and i also found an picture that shows the hooks on the Bosch distrubitor cap 0 290 004 500

only the very early V8's have an different distrubitor cap these are fitted with 2 clamps , on this link you can see the early (not suitable for your car) distributor cap

in the past i ordered a few parts on autodoc sometimes the shipping goes fast and sometimes it takes several weeks

Both of us have the same understanding, I guess I will go ahead and place the order.
