SL 55 Fuel Tank loose baffles

I heard a noise after lowering the roof on my R230 SL there all the time.
Confirmed as loose baffles,MB suggested I pay A$2300,for the replacement & labour to fix.(its a design fault,known of since 2003 MY,yet no recall??)

I read about one MB customer in Canada,who had the noise fixed,for $400.

Does anybody know a simple fix,or have an exploded view,so we can look at alternatives,such as foam into the tank,or access through the Fuel Tank sender port,so the baffle can be silenced?
This is not a difficult problem,just expensive for no gain.I'd rather spend it on
something worthwhile,
