I noticed some of the bolts on the Suspension arms have that crinkle cut.
Are these TX E or some call them Torx bolt heads? I.e. Do I need the female socket for these. [e.g. E20, E22 and E24??]

Other question, can one buy genuine MB small components for the brake calipers? I.e. the metal anti rattle clips on the brakes and the sliding pins and the thin I guess anti-rattle clip the sliding pins go through.
[ some of these items are rusty, so thought of replacing them.

Or do these little bits only come as part of the caliper.

Dunno what type of bolt head MB are using these days but there's various different styles beyond normal hex... bi-hex (12 point) for example along with Torx and E torx (female and male heads) etc

Yeah, the rattle springs, pins etc should all be available seperately and/or as a pad fitting kit. Can look your car up here https://www.catcar.info/mercedes/?lang=en and you'll find drawings and part nos
