Could a good member here please clarify how, as an example,

the 2nd row of this EPC for a door panel --> "937: NO. 9A88 | NO. 5B01 |....." is read and decyphered.

Cheers.

Most likely has to do with the material (leather vs MBTex vs cloth,) colours (Mercedes has multiple interior colours, in all three material types,) and options (power windows or manual windows, etc.)

Cheers for your input.

With this, I was able to get more details.
So the specific epc that I was using (I use several ones) doesnt show/provide 100% of all the info needed to 100% confirm the part number (for these door trims) specific to your vin #.

If you look at this epc example, it shows you the last 4-digits of the part # that could be specific to your vin#.
When my colleague looked thru the MB shop epc, he found that for our specific vin # with interior color (#261), that equated to the "NO.9045" the first of the sequence in numbers, in his epc system.
The other "17x", "26x" and "27x" numbers are the other interior color codes and they have their specific last 4-digits to the rest of the part # for their specific vin#.
