I have this black airbag from a W140 which has that nice chrome emblem.


The airbag fits my W124 steering wheel but doesn't match the grey color. Does anyone sell just the emblem that would fit on this airbag?


I see nothing on Ebay.

IIRC the W140 driver airbag with the chrome star was only available on the S500 Grand Edition, which was a one model year (MY1999 only) offering to commemorate the end of the "real" MB era and the last of the big S class sedans compared to the successors W220 and W221.

Standard production W140s, such as the S320, S420, standard S500 and even the S600 got the standard SRS bag without the chrome emblem.

In NZL and the UK at least, there was a recall on the airbag on 124's. They were replaced FOC at the Dealership with the shiny star ones. You might try MB themselves......???

A compatible airbag with chrome star was also available on the standard W202 C Class in model year 2000. This is much more common than the S500 Grand Edition Airbag, which is virtually impossible to find. The W202 airbag is also compatible with the older steering wheels and wasn't subject to the wheel/airbag change that happened in model year 1998
