Need Photo of 1991 500SL CA Emissions Sticker

I'm looking for a photo of the silver 1991 500SL California emissions sticker. It is usually located on the radiator support above the passenger side headlamp.

One of the people at the BAR suggested that I have this to help the referee process for an engine swap go more smoothly. I'd really appreciate it if someone could post up a clear high-resolution photo of that sticker for me.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for replying, but I need a photo of the sticker like this one. It is from a 1992 500SL, but I need the one from a 1991 since between 1991 and 1992 Mercedes changed the upshift delay from an electric solenoid on the transmission to a vacuum device on the bowden cable. I don't want the referee to think that I'm missing a part of the emissions system.

You don't need a sticker to pass smog. Only thing they will check is your actual emissions output and visually inspect that the hoses are all connected properly and EGR is intact. They don't even verify that your smog pump is working, just that you have one if you're supposed to have one.

I know that it is not required as part of the emissions test, but I am going through the process of legalizing my engine swap. The engine from a 1991 500SL into a 1991 560SEL.

The only reason I'm looking for that sticker is because one of the technicians at the Board of Automotive Repair suggested having it to make the first inspection go more smoothly since they will be able to clearly see that the entire emissions system has been swapped over accurately.

I checked in the EPC and I have the part number for both stickers now.

1295848421 (guide sign, vacuum lines, CA, '91-'91 silver)

1295848021 (guide sign, air pollution control, CA, '91-'91 black or yellow)

Also, the dealer won't sell it because it's for emissions. They told me that those stickers were never available for sale and are only put on at the factory. Oh well, I'll find it some how.

You may want to call a different dealer. That answer sounds like bs to me. What do they tell a body shop that's trying to repair a car and needs to replace a damaged sticker?

I tried a few different dealers and they all said the same thing. The parts are no longer available and there is no stock anywhere. Besides, we couldn't sell it to you anyway.

They would probably tell the body shop what they told me. Call the Mercedes Customer Assistance Center and they will send you a letter that states that the car is compliant with the emissions regulations. I did that. The letter they sent was practically useless.

This is the body of the email they sent me:

Subject: Model: 500 SL
VIN: WDBFA66E8MF015697


Dear Mr. Edward Martin,

Thank you for your recent contact to the Mercedes-Benz USA, Customer Assistance Center.

This is to confirm that the above vehicle was produced on 7/9/1990, as a 1991 model year vehicle, and was manufactured in conformity with all U.S. DOT Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards in effect at the time.

We hope you find this information useful. Best wishes for safe and pleasant driving.

Sincerely,


Nursen K
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC
Customer Assistance Center
800-367-6372


So, I'd really appreciate it if someone with a 1991 California 500SL could simply send me a few closeup pictures of those stickers.

How bought trying your local craigslist, maybe you will find a seller willing to allow you the picture.
