The dealer might not've had it in stock, but their
parts department should've had the initiative to
offer to order one for you. That's how I got one
for my '85 300D. It took about a week.
(Curiously, the cover had the word "reproduction" on
it, as though the originals are collector's items or
something. It was also slightly too big to fit into
the glove compartment, and had to be kept in the door
pocket where it was vulnerable to rain. So much for
German attention to detail...)
