    Anyone know the part number for some CLK w29 alloy centre caps, they are 18" if that makes a difference

    Cost would also be great

    Cheers

    Don't waste your money on OEM centre caps. They cost a fortune and the ebay plastic one are far better value.
    Not sure which design you are after but here are a few examples

    MERCEDES ALLOY WHEEL CENTRE CAPS A B C E G S CLASS CLK CLS SL ML GL 75MM SILVER | eBay

    SET OF 4 BLUE MERCEDES ALLOY WHEEL CENTRE CAPS 75MM FITS A B C E S ML CLASS NEW | eBay

    MERCEDES ALLOY WHEEL CENTRE CAPS A B C E CLASS CLK CLS SL ML GL 75MM MATT BLACK | eBay

    Someone is selling OEM on ebay for £60 a set! The dealers charge more.

    As above, definitely go for aftermarket centre caps.

    If you want to see the full selection, type Mercedes wheel centre caps into the ebay search. They do AMG ones too:D

    Check Aliexpress too. They have loads of centre caps. Loads under a tenner so not expensive either.

    Not sure what you are doing wrong, but my eBay caps fitted a treat without any clips breaking. Can you use the clips from the old caps to repair the broken ones?

    The clips have just snapped off, do you think I can superglue them back on?

    I fitted one by ripping all the clips off and just smacking it in and its fitted tightly and looks great
    Thinking of doing the same for the rest

    But there must be a proper way, when I try line up the clips and push in 2 go in but the last snaps.

    Here's the one I fitted by ripping off the clips and just pushing it in

    There is no way that glue will be as strong the the original material so they will break again. If they are a tight fit without the clips they will be fine.

    I got mine for circa £8 delivered from AliExpress, I just stabbed a screwdriver into the old ones to yank them out, then just slot the new caps right in

    On mine they were push in till it click type of caps so I'm not sure what exactly snapped on yours :eek:

    I also bought some from the top link (buy new set every year when go from winter tyres back to summer) but I had one snap on me also. I have had better quality ones these do seem a bit weak on the clip side. I have emailed them to see if I can just buy one replacement but been 4 days now and no answer :(
