Question Part for 1972 280 Compact

I'm living in Sydney, Australia. The passenger door is missing its internal side pocket in a 1972 280 Compact that I've just purchased. I'd like to replace it if it's not too expensive. The driver's door pocket is all good.
I'm also looking for a fan motor for the interior fan. It's dead and consequently can't run the cooling fan.
Any clues to where the best place to get these bits and not too expensive?

Hi there, Im also from Sydney. By compact do you mean a W114/115?

Ive found the Merc dealer in parramatta has been pretty helpful when looking for parts. Their spare parts people are really helpful. Make sure you have the chasis number handy so they can make sure they match your interior colour. Some parts are surprisingly cheap genuine. Others can make you gasp so just check the price. Other than that Ive got most of my parts from ebay. Occasionally you will find one being wrecked but it having the same interior colour is just a case of luck.

Theres also a euro car parts place in north parramatta and ASV in villawood. I sent ASV an email about 6 months ago for some parts. Followed it up twice but still no response. Guess they are too busy and make too much money to answer customers i dont know.
