Unfortunately, the wife backed into my Suburban this morning and crushed the driver's side tail light on her 2002 SLK 230. The "tail light issue" had been addressed by Mercedes. I'm looking for a replacement and suggestions where to get it (besides Mercedes). Having trouble finding standard aftermarket tail light assemblies. Should I just replace both with the LED Models?

Thanks.

Where in the world are you located??.
Many standard and now led on ebay. The led is a nice conversion IMO.

I have 2 spare sets in Oz..

Bazzle, I'm located in Fullerton, CA. Wish I lived down in OZ as it's absolutely gorgeous down there and the Aussies are very cool.

Dalahi, I'm considering upgrading to the LEDs. I'll do the ebay search under r170. Here's what I found:

eBay Motors: 99-00 MERCEDES SLK DRIVER SIDE OEM TAILLIGHT R170 (item 200226050903 end time May-29-08 05:49:43 PDT)

Used driver side OEM for 99-00 MBZ SLK 230 R170, buy it now price of $4.95 with shipping of $19.70. My question is whether this tail light works on the 2002?

It will swap straight in but finish is different, you need 00 to 2004 to match.:thumbsup:
