    I got a list of Ollie, but it included way more than I needed. your best bet is to actually go into a dealership with the old clips in hand and go through them one by one on the EPC.

    They soon mount up, both sides cost me £70!!!

    Do you have a pic of the rear arch one? I might actually have one spare unused...

    When I ordered you a full set back in 2003 was it, it came to about £20!

    The C43 sideskirts use a different clip underneath (a plastic screw) with a HWA part number.

    HWA = German for £££

    You would be better off going down to your dealers and making sure they actually quote you the correct part while you can see the part on screen. the margin for error is huge when ordering those clips.

    If you are talking the rubber strip that fits where the skirt joins to the car on the rear wheel arch and the front wing, its cheap and my dealer actually had them in stock, IIRC less than £3 ea.

    Replaced a few of the clips that run underneath the sills a couple of weeks ago. The plastic rivets were about £1-50 each and the round clips that go into the sills were not a lot more. Killer Hertz is right about the clips, the ones you DONT want are A 009 988 42 78 and A 009 988 43 78 - these are shown on the EPC and I got caught 1st time round. If I can find the invoice, I'll post the correct part numbers for you.
