Today's questions covers the front and the rear of the car!

First, my E320 Wagon's hood ornament got pulled off of the car this weekend - snapped off; I was able to remove the remaining ball-shaped piece still down in the hood. My question, is there any trick to putting a new one back in? Does it just "snap" into the opening on the hood? Any suggestions - mail order or other - as to where to purchase another hood ornament?

Secondly, I've been told that the inner portion of the rear, driver's side tail light assembly needs to be replaced - this is the part that includes the plate into which the light bulbs fit. After several light bulbs and electro-glop, I think that I finally need to break down and get one. Again, any suggestions as to where I can purchase this, or is this a "dealer-only" item?

Thanks for any and all replies!

Any tricks to installing either of these parts? Is this something that only a shop should install? Comments? Advice?

Replacement of both parts are easy do-it-yourself projects. You should be able to purchase the parts and install them yourself.

Can anyone offer specific instructions to install a new hood ornament or rear brake light assembly for '98 E320 Wagon, or direct to a Website with specific instructions?
