Both are toast on my 300CD. One of the ball ends is missing and the spring is jacked on both sides.

As some of you know, the coupe door checks are NLA from on-line sources and dealers. I have removed the check assemblies and have rigged a Jeep-Like restraining strap for safety but here is my question.

Has anyone had success modifying a sedan door check to fit the coupe? I suspect that the door opening arc will be limited but I can live with that if it is the only limitation. Are the mounting holes in the right place to install a sedan strap? I know the sedan assemblies are inexpensive but I don't want to take the door panels off again if it is a lost cause.

I checked the EPC

and found that the REAR sedan door checks are the same part number as the coupe door checks. They are still hard to find but I did locate a MEYLE aftermarket item on mercedessource.com and ordered two.

Watch this space.
