Parking Brake Release Handle

I broke the parking brake release handle on my 1990 300SL. I haven't had much luck finding a replacement on-line.
Does anyone have a recommendation?
Thanks
John

I would go to the Stealer{Dealer} I do not think you will find one on-line.

Ditto, that's just too random and not something that breaks commonly, so I don't think you'll ever find it except at the dealer...

Sorry

Thats what I figured. The dealor is usually my last option.
Thanks for the reply.

The plastic? parts on my car interior are becoming very brittle with age or sun damage. I've had the same problems with the visor mirrors and other clips and such.

I would also try ebay which will sometimes have odd stuff, and will be cheaper than the stealer.

That's why you need tint! They even have a 90% film that is crystal-clear but blocks 97% of UV rays, so if you don't like the dark look that's not a problem.
