I am wondering if you guys can help me identify a couple of bolts on my '82 380sl:

The first one is a headlight assembly mounting bolt. There are three of them that secure the headlight assembly to the frame. I have searched here and all over Google and I can't seem to identify the type and size of bolt required. I noticed that my driver's side headlight is a bit loose, so I took the plastic cover off to find a missing bolt.

The second one is the screw that secures the chrome grille wing to the grille. One of mine is missing and I'd like to get it replaced.

Thanks,
Craig

EPC is the Electronic Parts Catalog. Its available via subscription for $75/year. Or if you do a search on EPC you will find plenty of free versions. Its difficult to tell but I believe the hardware you need are these.

Thank you so much. I'm going to try my local Mercedes dealership to see if they can order them for me. If not, I'll probably remove the parts and take them into a fastener shop to see if they can provide replacements.

I would remove the screw for the other side thats if they are the same to get the size from. So you can purchase another the same,, come on a screw is a screw nothing special

Good points, guys. Thanks. I'll remove the similar parts and take them to a fastener shop first. I appreciate the advice.

Spaenaur has a 1700 page catalogue of just fasteners, and a super friendly retail desk. They’ll sell you a single washer, or spend 30 minutes trying to match some weird metric bolt you bring to them in pieces.

Almost makes up for not having McMaster-Carr access. Almost...
