1st off thanks to Malcolm for sending me the papers to do this job,it's not straight forward but after short while I figured out how to get the window perfectly aligned.

Problem is tho whem it came to tighten everything up one of the bolts sheered off :( The window is still aligned right and it goes up and down perfect but I'd like to replace it. It's the top bolt near the wing mirror which sets the front of the window.What I need to know is if this bolt/locater thing is available by itself and does it have a part number?

If it is 10mm I have loads of counter sunk and slim headed screws about 10 and 12mm long

If you don't mind it would be great if you could bring a few to the meet on Sunday if I can't get replacement part from MB. :)

And thanks again for the papers Malcolm,driving home was a amazingly quiet compared with before(and it wasn't that bad before).

You could post the old one to me and I could drill it out for you and fit a countersunk bolt, then bring it back on the Sunday

Thanks Malcolm and apologies for the hastily done note inside.I didn't have a jiffy bag so took your address with me to Post Office and just quickly scrawled my thanks on the back while packing :)
