Fog lights on a 115 76 240D

I finally took apart the fog lights on my 240D and both the lenses, the bit behind the glass that holds the bulb, are falling apart. Also I can't seem to find any place that sells any part of the fog light assembly online. Can you guys and gals give me some suggestions on where to look? And if someone could figure out why the driver side fog light doesn't work I'll give you a cookie. Thanks.

Sources for your lights are places like large or specialized automotive flea markets, mercedes parts collectors etc. Have also seen them on ebay from time to time. No longer available from original equipment suppliers unless you perhaps find a supplier with a pair on his shelves or a mercedes dealer still with a set. Western wrecking yards in arizona might have a good set but they will need a replate. The chrome fades badly with massive light exposure. At least when I tried to get a replacement set from the manufactures agents I was told they are no longer available. Although my request was for a 1972 114 but think yours are simular.

I see. I had figured they may be hard to get ahold of. Problem is, I can not even seem to find a part number for them. I suppose a MB dealer may have that. Thanks for the tips.

Try looking up hella lights on the web. I just went out and looked at a set in the garage aquired off of a 71-73 model. They may have been the originals. Also put in parts wanted segment of this site but have any offering remove the reflectors to inspect them as they love to rust on the lower edge. Should still be some new ones out there somewhere. Just gotta find them. Easier said than done I guess.

I just got finished reading an email from the OEM replacement parts department of Hella. They no longer have anything available. I am beginning to wonder if it wouldnt be easier to replace the fog lamps with something modern that looks similar.

Depending on a few things why not? The problem that may or may not affect you is the originals are pretty shallow. But perhaps the current offerings are simular. You still may want to locate an original type set. At least your thread and another stirred me up enough to find a new reasonable source for resilvering reflectors. Thanks to someone elses recent experience. Hunting parts and accessories is not only a learning experience but good to practice. You slowly learn the ropes in my opinion.
