Exclamation Urgent Help Needed! in SO CAL(Irvine) area

Help!

My 1999 ML320 broke down last night.
Does anyone know where I can find a "tie-rod, outer left" TODAY?
I'm traveling and currently stuck in Irvine,CA 92614 area.

No franchise parts store have this in stock, no dealer parts dept is open today. My cell is 916-402-8830.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Steve

Thanks for your advice. But there's no Advance Auto in any western states. Also no local stores carry this, or they're all CLOSED today.

Or are there any Advance Auto in SO Cal?

Sorry to bring the bad news, but I see no way you can get the part on Sunday, even in California with so many MB parts suppliers. Get a hotel and enjoy the night.

Don't cry, you are in beautiful and entertaining area where tomorrow you will have plenty open MB services and part supplies.
Would you rather be in Mojave with closest MB shop 200 miles away?

Trust me, being the original owner of this ML320, been there and done that, if you know what I mean. Oh well, I'm not crying any more...but I believe in miracles...

You're actually in the same town as the Classics Center for the USA, but I checked for you and they too are closed today. Maybe a visit after you get your car fixed will help put you back in a happy spirit tomorrow?

Good luck and have a safe journey.

Good you had it fixed and I hope you enjoyed Sunday night after-all. Years ago my whole family in ML320 was stuck in Las Vegas for 2 days, because nobody there stocked the H speed rated tires for SUV> not that we complained much
