I need the little nut that goes right underneath the B-pillar on an R107 hardtop.
The part looks like this:
MercedesÂ® Nut, Chrome Hard Top, 107 Chassis
It's really hard to get a hold on what to call this thing, but "hardtop nut" seems to be a pretty well accepted term. It's also really hard to track them down, but I found a site that sells them for $61.00, under the part number 107 795 03 73.
Let me know if you've got a spare that you're willing to sell for less. If you're in New York City, I can pick it up in person, which I'd prefer to do if possible. I'd also be able to pick it up in Chicago if you're willing to wait a week or two.
Or if anyone can suggest an alternative way to get the top unhooked from right behind the seats, that would be nice.
