For sale is my Third Row seating option, taken from my 2001 ML430. This is not just the seats, like you see on E-bay, but the full conversion kit. The kit is 90% intact, meaning every single thing you need, every nut, bolt, seatbelt and all is included and labeled for easy installation. There are *two* things omitted from this kit:
The rear row grab-handles and the jumpseat upper hooks, which hold the seat in the stowed position. These parts are single-serving, and will break upon removal. They are made to be put in once (thanks, MB...) so, I elected to leave them be as broken parts are of no use to either of us! lol
You could omit the grab handles entirely, but you should install the hooks if you want to fold away the jumpseats.
That being said, the kit is in excellent condition and was barely used it seems. I have no use for it myself, so no sense in hauling around extra gear I don't need or want.
Here are the pics:
AGAIN this is NOT in the kit:
I wanted to offer this to the guys on here first, before it goes to craigslist and ebay. I know this is an enthusiast rare option, and I'd rather it go to someone on here!
Install should be very easy, as I was done with the removal in under two hours. Nothing even broke, and everything went back together nicely. Shouldn't be too difficult of a retrofit, for those even slightly mechanically inclined. I can .pdf the instructions also, if necessary.
$1200 firm, local pickup price. I'm located in Nassau County, Long Island. I'll have this on here for a week, then it's off to ebay and craigslist.
