W124 parts ordering

I need to order parts for my E320. Sites keep asking me if the chassis is from B864308 or to B869307. Do I look at the last digits of my VIN (C230097) for that info?

I use Dow Molycote 33. It was given to me free. This grease is designed to lubricate at low temperatures, is good for plastics. Not much worse than Krytox, but much cheaper.

I vaguely remember servicing the door check on my car 20 years ago. I removed it and regreased the unit. This couldn't be done in-vehicle. It was tricky to take apart with the spring force.

I remember wiper blades for 50, Casite air and oil filters for $1.

Cars were cheap to maintain through the 70s and 80s. Inflation doesn't account for many of the prices nowadays.
