Where can I find r12 engine bay stickers?

I cannot seem to find them anywhere online.

I back-converted from r134a to r12 and I ditched the old sticker, but I would like to get a correct R12 sticker now.

Anybody know of an online site that sells them?

Is there an OE MB sticker? That would be kinda cool...

You might contact any retailer that sells to the auto A/C businesses in your area. If there are none you might have to make up such a sticker yourself.

I can see where there may not be such stickers out there since what you have done is so rare, but the information is rather vital to anyone working on your A/C system.

I would get two of these stickers and put one one the radiator support and one on the compressor where it could not be missed.

Well I put the R12 fittings back on, but I would still like a sticker anyway. Would be nice for me to put a date so I can remember in the future how much I put in etc...

I'll make some calls if nobody else knows of a site I can buy from.

Robert, your local dealer should have them. Ordered from Germany and takes 2 weeks usually. Not sure what the W124 original sticker's P/N is but somebody should still have it here.

Bought some stickers from the dealer for my 300D before, I might do the same for the 190E soon.

Actually it is real easy to get the part number for one. Think outside the box, for a minute here:


Go to the junkyards and look at W124 models' engine compartments, until you see an intact one on a wreck.

I'd expect to find one on the radiator bracket for the W124. I copied the part number off the sticker, when I found one (speaking on a W126) .

Then went to the Merceds Benz dealer, and ordered a brand new one.


Took about a week for them to get it to me.


Cost around $6 or $7 or so, a couple of years ago, as I remember.

Got the new sticker last week. Cost me $3.20 and had it in 4 days.
Part compress stated was correct.

I ALSO managed to find one of the last Palamino floor mats for the 124 chassis left in the USA! I contacted the Classic Center and they said there were none left and I had to resort to 'Date'.

Very happy I have correct mats!
