my new hobby is to repair and make this car dependable and mercedes fit. I acquired this car sitting in a warehouse and outside for over six years. It has just 106K miles on it. The body was rough but somehow managed a shine after rubbing compound. Interior is the problem. It is in pretty good shape but I cannot find replacement parts. I need all the headliner, third brake light, woodgrain, window switches. I broke the lower left dash plate that holds the hood latch, steering wheel adjustment and cannot find one anywhere on-line to replace these items.
My question is where can I order these parts? With lots of love and time, this car will be a very nice car. I just hated to see this car sit because it was in good condition and it was a task just made for me. Thanks Bobby

you might want to fill out your profile completed including where you live. That way someone might be able to suggest a pick a part junk yard near you which is much cheaper than ordering parts online.
Here in NM there are not alot of the W202's I see at the junkyard but they seem to get about 1 in per month.

good luck.

One place I know that have tons of parts is Sunvalleydismantlers.com in SoCal. You can also try car-part.com.

Check the wiring harness first!

Then, sorry to say, ask yourself, and before you spend too much money, why are you doing this?

If you want one, go '97 and newer.
