Piece of weather stripping - 87 560 SL

OK, I went to the dealership to buy a piece of weatherstripping that no one has listed. It is a door stop piece of rubber the goes in between the chrome piece the seatbelt goes through and the door jam. I have the passenger side piece but I need the driver's side. Anyone know where I can find it? The parts guy at the dealership said he tried to find one for another customer and could not - even at MB classic.

I bought these, you need weatherstripping adhesive and removal of the chrome cap to put it on right.

Emailing the people at the classic center (send message on their web site) has never failed me. But a VIN is important, as is a really, really good description of the part. I know parts people lose their minds over "I need the thingie that goes over the whatsit"....

Strife, As a thirty year veteran of the parts game I must commend you on your recognition of the 'partsman's dilemma', lack of valid information. A close second on the list of pet peeves is having your significant other phone for a price quote while hollering info to her from the garage! Once again, good advice, and Thank You! Dave.

Strife, thank you for the info, ordered them yesterday and hope to get them Tuesday. The parts guy at the dealership also thanked you, he has a customer that has been looking for 2 years for these babies. It is always a pleasure to ask people for help on this forum. Thanks, once again.
