    Evening all,
    ML270 (W163), rear light cluster, undo the 2 plastic bolts inside the tailgate and then the cluster pulls out towards the rear. At the forward end of the cluster is a ball joint which seats into a plastic bush secured inside the rear wing. The plastic bushes on both sides of mine are broken, so the light clusters don't seat properly. The bushes are tubular, about 4cm long, 2cm diameter, and the ball joint recess is about 8mm diameter.
    Question is does anyone have the MB part number for these plastic bushes as even at MB dealer prices they can't be that expensive ?
    Many thanks.

    Managed to get the part number myself from an unusually helpful main dealer.
    If it's of use to anyone else, it is A1638260027, £2.85 plus VAT.
    Photo of the part I mean below. It screws into a captive self tapping screw protruding from the wing, so just screws off/on by hand.
    Cheers.
