    Hi All

    I'm just about to take delivery of a set of side bars for my ML (W164). They are genuine MB parts. I dont fancy paying 4 1/2 hours labour at my local dealer for fitting so was wondering if anyone has access to a diagram of the fixing points ? .... fee payable if required ;)

    Thanks in advance

    MS

    They might yet come with instructions and a fitting kit if they're the real thing.

    Hello

    If they are the alloy bar type side bars there will only be two fitting brackets per bar and its not rocket science as the holes should all be ready there.

    The trouble I had fitting them on my own I needed three hands to hold the bars up and tighten the bars.

    So a quick down to the local garage and up on ramps, £50 job done (and that included sorting and fitting a back box)
