The p/n I have for the 3rd Row kit from the dealer is: A16639301905
This is for the Java (light tan) interior
. I have attached the parts/packing list that was included in the kit. You may also be able to find p/n's of additional, individual pieces that you may need, if you purchase the seats from another member.
Stop reading now, if that is all the info you want. The rest of this thread is likely to get lengthy and provide way too much information.
The kit p/n above included 'grip rails' (hand grips) and 'brackets' (clips to hold up the seats when not in use) that would not work in my 2002 ML with the side curtain airbags. Therefore, I had to order the following p/n's:
Grip Rails: 163-810-29-51-8G13 (hand grips)
Bracket: 163-932-03-14-8G13 (Clips to hold the seats up)
to mount the seats are NOT included
in the kit, and the following p/n's are needed:
These are Left and Right unique, so one of each
The links below show pictures of the grip rails & brackets installed:
2nd row seat flip hardware (included in the kit above) installation photos are located:
This tumble option makes it much easier to get into the 3rd row.
Installation Instructions are in these links:
3rd Row Seat
Another 3rd row option (non-Mercedes) can be seen at this site:
Mercedes ML Class Third Row Seating, Suv Third Seat, Mercedes ML Class Third Row Seat, 3rd Seat, Leather Suv Seat
Hope this information is helpful.
Good luck with your purchase decision and installation! Installation is not difficult, and the benefit of being able to carry 7 passengers is huge (compared to taking 2 vehicles).
