97 E320 Radio Code

Take your proof of ownership to any dealer and they will give you the code. If the radio is the original, you're in business. If it's a replacement you'll need to pull it and give them the serial number. I don't think you have to drive the car to them.

Why couldn't you ask from your co-worker? If you did not get the code label with the car documents, the previous owner should have it.

they didnt have the manual either and they also had to call the dealership to get the code. they were not the original owners of the vehicle. and they have misplaced/dont remember where they wrote it down.

Serial # BE1692V1135272242232 Should be last four digits (I think) Correction last 5.

Spring perches, as I'm sure you know by now, are a common issue with these beasts. I think you need to have them welded but don't remember the details. Have a look at the W210 stickys and you should find plenty of information on the fix.
