See the attached pic.

The badge in the front of the engine cover has just disappeared. I found the silver star in two parts on the under tray, but unsure of what happened to the rest of it.

Is this a common thing to just disappear? Went to the dealer and will have to buy a whole engine cover for A$450 (or something, so around US$500). A bit much just for this.

Any ideas or suggestions?

mate dealer is dreaming - as usual for oz

you can buy the front cover part only part #1130100967 for US $100 brand spankers

i use mbenznl or autohausaz to get to oz - (may be worth trying mbspares in oz)

there is a wrecking sl55 on the bay in parramatta that may have the cover

Mine lost its chrome, so I used a trunk star ($7) and some JB weld...

Good as new, you cant even tell the difference...

The problem in your case is you lost the grill backing for the start, so you'll have to get creative with that part...

BTW, look into the lower engine cover, you might get lucky and find it there...

Thanks for the advice! Will have a look in a few days.
If I can't find the back of it, I have found the front cover online for a reasonable price.
