Mine has disintegrated internally. It was glued to the seat covers when I got the G, so I thought I have a look at it.

I've taken it apart and it's definitely beyond repair. Plastic internals completely shattered.

Does anyone know of one for sale or roughly how much MB will want for a new one please?

Hi mate,

It's a RHD 300 GEL of 1993 vintage

It's a Japanese import that has good quality bespoke seat covers fitted.  When I got the G the armrest was glued to the cover!

It's hard to see condition of the actual rest from your photo but I have a feeling that the internal parts are still available from MB.

Definitely worth investigating with your MB parts department before splashing out on a new one.

Not the end of the world; arm rest internal plastics are availble as repairable item, or at they were.

New ones are quite dear - some £400 last I checked.
