    Anyone know the part number for the MB valve caps, with the star on the end, and that cover the complete rubber valve.

    Some lowlife has had two of them away today:crazy:

    Kids pinched one of mine that I had just fitted recently. So rang the Spares dept of the dealer and spoke to the spares man, who I know, he put 4 in the post for me free of charge.;) ;)

    Tip - When fitting these use a pair of pliers to tighten them, makes it harder for the scrotes to pinch them.:rock:

    In less than six months I've had a full set of "branded" caps and then two ordinary metal caps nicked. I've now invested in some theft proof caps.

    Seems pretty sad to be bothered nicking valve caps.

    When you say 'theft proof', I was looking at a set of these in Motor World and the lady behind the counter said, "Well you'd think it would stop them, but they buy the keys to take them off with...." :crazy:

    This morning I received my shiny new valve caps from Howard:) :)

    Now the ML needs a wash before I fit them:mad:


    Thanks Howard, have one of these.:bannana:

    I'll be ordering a set shortly ... light-fingered Germans nicked the ones off my Vito when we went down to the Bodensee for the day :(
