Searched high and low and I am unable to find this at a reasonable price. Does anyone know where to get a used one?
This is for a 1987 560sl.

They're about as rare as hen's teeth. Those who have them for sale know this and price them accordingly.
I feel like buying an r107 for the parts... $300 or so for a freaking cap lock tool . . . .WOW!

I had one missing on my hardtop but the handle still slotted in and worked. The hardtop is now hanging from the rafters in the garage never to go back on the car until I either move or sell the car.

I was not going to pay the extortionate amounts sellers are asking for them, especially as not really needed. But I put it in my eBay saved search, two years later I regretted letting a brand new one go to a higher bidder for £65.
However a year ago one popped up on eBay in good condition, £12 including shipping. Think it was only listed for two minutes, I didn't think twice and bought it. It's on the hardtop but I am tempted to sell them separately if money gets short.

Moral of the story is to be patient and another may come along at sometime in the future. Unless you feel you need one more urgently.

Thank you,. I'll set up a watch on ebay.
I have nothing but time. My service shop will unlock them when I'm ready to go topless this year. Every year they go bumper to bumper on all of my MBs so they have been paid /s.

My phone number is 910-619-8040. $50 is ok. Text me your address and I will mail it to you Monday. I will text you back with my address and you can mail me a check Monday. As 560 SL owners I think we can trust each other!

I have two of them. I was trying
to work maiwurd but I haven't heard from him after about six hours . I will sell them for $55 each. The $5 increase is to cover shipping. I want to be fair with everyone. My phone number is 910-619-8040. To be fair I will sell them to the first two folks to text me at my phone to work out the details of shipping and payment. Thank you!
