Roof rack cross bars for GL (X164).

MB Part # B6 781 2129 "Cross Beam Chrome".
Broken trim caps, but they could possibly be glued on. However, I think they look fine without them.
Includes keys and allen wrenchs for easy mounting.
Came off 2010 GL350.
Slight clouding of chrome on upper serface but could likely be buffed-out.
Works well. No pitting or rust.

The chrome bits that are broken off, are those the bits that are on the end under the bars where the bars attached to the rail? The reason I'm asking is. On mine one of the chrome bits are missing and the other day when I was leaving to go to work the other one slid off the top of the roof.

I'm thinking someone tried to lift the bits off the bars? The first one I never found and perhaps the thief came back for seconds? I also noticed that the plastic tabs were broken off the piece that rolled off the roof. I'm thinking the thief busted the first chrome cover and came back for the second one?

I've taken both cross bars off the truck. So the jerk does not have any more to come back too!

Thule makes those bars for Benz and I've contacted them. They have turfed the question over to their German office for follow-up. My local Benz shop has been a royal PITA. From the online Benz parts grid it looks like they are very expensive to replace. 80 dollars each. Yikes!

I'd leave the key in the truck next time, but with my luck they would leave a note saying good try! You can keep it!

Thanks
