Hi,

Does anyone know if there any (less expensive) alternatives to the Mercedes OEM seal for a 1991 W463, or where i can pick up an OEM part for a decent price?

Thanks

You can try Woolies?.or  a , ,trim specialist,  some of them will send you a small section to cross reference , been discussed here before,  possibly from a German breaker or ebay.de you will get a second hand one, but think three colours available?  Unless yours is plain black.?

I'm watching this thread because I also wanted to add supplemental seals to 463 door to fill the gap you can get your pinky in.  Hopefully cut down on the wind noise at speed. I'm going to check woolies too to see if there is a profile that looks like it will do that, in addition to the compression seal.

Woolies did it for me. Very helpful. Old fashioned service in the best sense of the phrase.
