Need part number for horn contact rings 560SEL
Hey guys, did a search function, didn't see much. While I have my steering wheel off on the 1986 560SEL to switch out the turn signal/multi switch assembly, I realized that the carbon brushes for the airbag and horn contact aren't all the same length anymore relative to each other (a pic of a new one online shows the brushes being significantly longer than mine and the lengths look even) so figured why not switch them out. Also my contact rings aren't flat and have grooves worn into the rings and coloring is brass and silver not just one or the other. I can buy new the circular horn rings and the airbag carbon contacts (circled in yellow). But upon receiving the turn signal/multiswitch switch assembly (in lower left of picture held up next to the old one) it is missing the carbon brushes. (those circled in blue in the pic.).
Anybody know what the PN's are on those carbon brushes? I figure they just push out from the back or pry up from the front? If I can't find any I'd transfer the ones I have from the old turn signal/multiswitch assembly to the new.
