Hi all,
New member Dick Drake here - only a new member because I couldn't get in with my old password etc. I have a 2005 R230 350, which I've owned since 2012 and I have been very happy with it, except for the usual leaking boot seal, all has been pretty good overall. I've done about 55K miles since I bought it, including 4 European trips, the last one was 18 months ago and comprised 13 countries, 4500 miles and 38 days - it never missed a beat! The perfect touring car!
Anyway, the engine bay needs a bit of attention and I'd like to know what the original decals / stickers were in 2005, has anyone any idea of where these can be obtained or if there is a detailed photo of such that I may use to replicate them? MY local MB dealer just ignored my emailed request for this info, very helpful!
Many thanks
Dickyd49

I don't think that there are that many stickers, you have one that sits on the top of the header tank. One on the rad plastic cowl at the top and one for anti-freeze on the rad slam panel. There are some attached to the SBC pump, that's all I can think of at the moment. Sorry I don't have any clear photos.

Hi
The stickers have their pt no's on, so anyone with a similar model should be able to tell you the pt.no. as well as its location.
Most if not all stickers are still available from MB.

Thanks for this - I've looked on 7zap and couldn't find the decals, but there is a lot of other stuff there.
