A reference guide, with part numbers and pictures, for the original stickers found on the 124 series.

No tools needed for this thread...

Cheap to buy, easy to fit - an OEM sticker can bring back a touch of that long-lost showroom glamour to your old 124, and some of them are still quite useful, too. Trouble is, part numbers an be very elusive, as I found when searching for missing labels from my S124. And how to find out exactly what was stuck to your car in the factory? There are some related threads around here, but no definitive guide and no source of reproduction stickers for 124's either. So, here's my attempt at a reference - hopefully it'll now be easier for all you 124 obsessives out there to add that finishing touch, especially those noble souls who have completed restorations that have destroyed the original items.

Please contribute part numbers, model, location and pictures / descriptions of your related finds. There are many year / model / market variations to hunt for, maybe we can find out exactly what's still lurking in the parts stores too. Unit costs for all of these are low, typically in the £.50 - £2 range.

Thanks to all who have contributed information and photographs (glad I'm not the only member with OCD!) We are certainly on the way to a definitive guide now. A special mention goes to Mbeige whose original thread on the W123 forum gave me the idea...

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w124-e-ce-d-td-class/w124-e-ce-d-td-class/w123...rs-decals.html

(Also see page 5 for his valuable post with part numbers for labels and all kinds of other good things.)

A full parts list and pictures follows below and will be regularly updated to include anything new we find. Also to be completed soon is a list of the generic must-have stickers across the 124 range, labels that should be found on all our cars excluding the very many model / market specific ones.

Note - '*' after the part number means that I've recently made a successful order for the that item. '**' indicates it is no longer available from stock in the UK and was obtained from the central parts stores in Germany by my main dealer.

Some of these may not have been original on a 124 series car, your corrections & revisions welcome.


*1 - Still serves a useful function, and has retro appeal. Arrived from Germany covered in dust so either a) there aren't many left or b) there's no part number printed on them so no-one's managed to order any for years. Remember to order 2, they aren't sold in pairs.

*2 - Traditional sticker in the US market, at least 5 versions used so far. I think this is a post-merger late 90's / early 00's one. My car wears a white variant as pictured. Part number listed here orders same design but in silver. More pictures / info of other designs on page 3 of the thread.

*3 - MB parts counter thought it may be possible to order a replacement VIN sticker if proof of vehicle ownership is provided. It's another useful sticker that should be present if the car's never been repaired or tampered with.

*17 - These labels cover E200, E220 & 300E. Other versions of this label required for 280, 320, 500 & AMG + all diesel units

Engine Sticker
I've included a picture of a fragment of a large label found on my engine. It's a paper label and so likely to have peeled from most cars, become covered in oil or been jet-washed right off. If you still have an intact label like this, it would be great to see it and to check what information it carried. Picture much appreciated...

I found on ebay a seller that replicates factory stickers, and get some for my w108 project. I have yet to find one for the w124.

Thanks for the valuable info, I'll link it in the stickies.

Cheers,

It would be nice to add the North American and diesel versions to this thread. In what section of the EPC are these found?

I don't have access to the EPC, but I would like to see info for all models / markets too. It seems that many of the best-preserved 124's still on the roads are in North America now, so it makes good sense to have full lists available for the enthusiasts there.

All the stickers I ordered by PN were listed in the EPC that my dealer used with generic titles such as 'Guide Sign', 'Gummed label', 'Plate' and 'Warning Strip', which makes it impossible to order the decals by name or description only. Next time I'm at the parts counter, I'll give them a couple of numbers and ask what section they appear in.



BTW, I have just found another PN from earlier North American 124's

Driver's door jamb, SRS service plate, black/white - 129 584 01 02

Most (but not all) are in Group 58, see page 2. There are a lot more than what's listed here, and they will vary with each year/model/engine/country.

:cool:

*1 - My favourite sticker, still serves a useful function, and has retro appeal. Arrived from Germany a little wrinkled and covered in dust so it could be that there aren't many left. Or it might just be that, as there's no part number printed on them, no-one's managed to order any for years...

*2 - Traditional sticker, many versions made. I think this is a post-merger late 90's / early 00's one. My car wears a white variant as pictured. Part number listed here orders same design but in silver. More info required for other variants seen on 124's

*3 - MB parts counter thought it may be possible to order a replacement VIN sticker if proof of vehicle ownership is provided. I will make a template for the Euro design to print up a reproduction if no replacement is available - it's another useful sticker that should be present if the car's never been repaired or tampered with.

*10 - there are 3 indented spaces in the S124 trunk ledge that appear to be reserved as sticker locations. This is the one I'm missing, perhaps only affixed to cars ordered with factory tow-bar option. Part number needed please - this is a rare one.

*17 - M111 series info on this label. Euro only I think... I have seen black emissions labels of the same size in this position on photos of US cars, full of small text - part number needed. (US cars seem to have labels concerning regulations and warnings, while cars on this side of the pond have more specs / tech. info / pictograms on their stickers.)
Wow...this is fantastic, many thanks! There is a yellow sticker on the top of the air cleaner lid.....know anything about that one?

Stormtigers... great, thanks for taking the time, these are good additions as they will be of use to the many committed Benz lovers in North America - I hope there will be more and more 124 projects and restorations over there as the cars age, many cars over here suffer from bad climate and neglectful owners.

I will update the parts list with your additions later.

Kevin, thanks mate... the yellow air cleaner label you mention is number 12 on the list, 210 584 00 47. (On my '96 car it's positioned elsewhere, but that's just an age thing.) Stormtiger's car is an 80's build, his label has the same text but a slightly different size/shape and layout: that number reads 123 884 (or 684) 93 21. It could be that only the later version can now be ordered, but they are essentially the same label and contrary to what I've read, still available too.

I'm glad some of you are interested, thought I might be on my own in this thread... should have known that any forum with 10,000 posts about OVP relays would come through!

One of the things that has kept me from getting my windows tinted is not wanting to lose the "Alarm Code" sticker on the back doors. :D

Thanks, Moth!

Moth, not a problem ! Just note those labels are Australian delivery not USA.
But worthy project - some would say who cares ? But honestly our models are fast approaching the classic status and as evidenced by the recent demise of another Aussie one one here recently into a salvage auction, numbers are depleting slowly but surely.

Keep up the good work !

I've made a sister thread with an illustrated placement guide for the engine bay decals, just in case it comes in handy sometime. If you're one of those heroes who are staring at a freshly rebuilt engine sitting in a freshly repainted bay, you've got no excuse not to cover it in stickers now. Please visit -

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w124-e-ce-d-td-class/1622294-w124-series-illustrated-guide-engine-bay.html

Please continue to post any new pics or sticker-related info here - still looking for all the US / Canadian ones with PN's, and of course all that exotic AMG stuff.

Stormtigers - I didn't read far enough... saw your car and thought 'USA!' I should've remembered how much you Aussies love your muscle cars too. (Last time I was there I narrowly escaped being knocked off my bike by a black E500 with Lorinser bumpers and full tints. That was in Sydney, so I'm not blaming you for that one.)

I made this thread to add something to the forum that might help the mighty 124's and their owners a little bit, and I honestly haven't got anything much more useful to contribute than this. I have found my level, I am a lightweight. Still, someone has to consider the little details while the rest of you are messing about with your valve clearances and welding things.

124's are disappearing fast over here, too. 10 years ago there were more of them about London than black cabs. 5 years ago there was still a nice one on every London street, but now they're finally getting beaten by the worst kind of owners. High fuel prices don't help, values for big petrol engines have gone through the floor. I know of 2 other local 124's that are getting scrapped this month rather than have the basic maintenance they need... now I see why I never see a 123 around any more. I miss them, and I'd hate the 124's to follow. Cult status is maybe the key to an old car's survival, and as you say I reckon the 124 is on the way to achieving that. At least cars like yours will help it along - is there a cooler, classier car for the money anywhere than a well-loved 124?

Hahahah No it wasn't me and the Sydney crowd are renowned for impatience due to the shoddy road network. Melburnians just drive around with their head up their ass so you were probably better off not coming down here.

The answer to your closing question.....hmmmmm ... difficult one.......

Awesome...many thanks again. This is just the coolest info ever....it's like the final ingredient to a stellar pie.:D

All I have left is the lightning bolt...the rest has peeled off, although quite recently. Question though...that sticker on the windshield that says 'certified MB windshield glass' or whatever...do you get that with an OE glass replacement, or do I have to buy the sticker somewhere?

Kevin
