    Hi Guys,

    Just ordered a new "soft close lock" from Mercedes as mine has given up the ghost and now won't look the tailgate or soft close. Currently held down with a rachet strap to stop the tailgate lifting over speed bumps etc.

    I was going to go second hand with the part but they all seemed to be the same age so was worried it may happen again and price wise there between £180-£240.

    A new one from Meceredes is £260+vat so opted for that.
    Should arrive within two days .

    Fingers crossed i'll be able to open the tailgate again after fitting .
