As you can probably tell from my recent posts, we are rebuilding the door and window mechanisms (new seals, motors, cleaning and re-greasing etc.) so decided to replace the clips that hold the door latch rods in place and ordered them from Benz. What crap. The originals, on the right, are hi-density nylon that completely enclose the rod holding it securely. The new ones are cheap plastic with 1/8"+ of play guaranteed to let the rods rattle.
The flap, that holds the rod in the clip, will break if you look at it hard.
Bottom line, save your old clips.
