W126 items wanted

Can anyone help with the following needed for my 1987 420SEL:

Water Pump,
air pump,
headlight(s) - one was kicked in at an airport by a local while I was away on business - nice! -
I may also consider euro lights, if anyone has a pair
door lock (not the key bit - but the actual lock mechanism)
( - at some point I may also be interested in getting an immaculate pair of front seat chairs in gray leather, passenger seat especially)

and I am also interested in for my 1986 420 SEL:

brown leather arm rest
Becker MB CD player (or, older Nakamichi)
boot (trunk) lid - in smoke silver if possible

Many thanks!

I'd try eBay if you can't find anyone with parts here.

Here are a bunch of 87 mercedes that are being auctioned off on copart.com. I've found from previous experience you get a better deal when you buy an unusable car and use the parts you are looking for instead of purchasing parts separately.

hope this helps!

Many thanks for the replies, my apologies it took me a day or so to respond. this all sounds interesting. Thanks very much. Been out driving too much..., amazingly the ABS still works on my 1987 (found out last night), although I cringed to brake that hard to find out - she doesn't deserve that, but I think it's true that in an emergency, unless you've practised it, one tends not to brake too hard out of instinctive fear of locking it up. Anyway, that was my excuse forr being out late last night enjoying her. But that water pump is leaking so bad now. Crikey. Thanks everyone. I'll respond or PM me. Enjoy...

Many thanks, indeed - I have standard US headlights, W126 second generation, i.e. 1986 - 1991 for my 1987, unless I'm completely mistaken! Well,I did until some yob kicked one of them in.

Would yours be for first or second generation W126?

Thanks

For the W126 I have right & left Bosch Euro Head lights with side markers, with good glass lenses and reflectors.
Around the wrecking yards, the occasional W126 Euro head lights often come with damaged reflectors (usually the bottom) or glass, and sometimes both. It often takes 2 sets to put together 1 good pair.

Many thanks, I'm interested and I am flying to your part of the world this weekend... How much would a pair be?

Many thanks, feel free to PM me.
