Best places to buy parts

I have gotten great advice from some of you over the past couple days. You helped me get my seat motor switch out of the door. I was going to clean it with connector cleaner and see if that helped, but when I took the back off the switch case, many little ball bearings and brass connectors fell out. Alas, I am a poor mechanic at best and know almost nothing about electronics.
I was given a website for buying parts, and here is the info pasted from there-
Product Brand Availability Retail Our Price
O6060-26653 Seat Switch IN STOCK $0.00 $111.03

My car is a 1990 300E

Does anyone have one of these that works that you could sell for less? Or do you know another website to buy Mercedes parts from? I am not going to call a junkyard, and the local dealers/repair shops will charge a small fortune to do this.

I see you're new here... glad this great forum was able to help you diagnose your problem.
If you're looking for parts, why wouldn't you use the parts link at the top of this page and do business with one of the site's sponsors? Give Phil a call and see if he can help you FIRST. It costs money and resources to run a site like this, why wouldn't you support it by doing business with it?

I don't understand your comment about not calling a junkyard. Where do you think most of the used parts are?

Ken-Yes, I am new to this site, and did not give any thought to using the links or the sponsors to the site. I did not want to call a junkyard but have changed my mind and am going to do so. I do not know what I was thinking.
I do know that I have bitten off more than I can chew with this car, but it sure is a nice drive!
Thanks for the advice!

If you are lucky and have a "U-pull-it" yard around, go there and get one. Do not pass by other models (such as 126's) since they use some of the same parts your 124 does. - You never know what you might find!

btw, the part number you listed is not the MB part number. Look for it on the switch itself - this way you get a better match.
