Mercedes in Aberdeen did same to mine in 2007. They are vandals. I managed to get compensation out of them.

Cut some rubber out of old boots or inner tubes and place under your top stop collar.

Just out of curiosity, why do you need a part that never wears out?

i also melted mine ...heating up stuck top nut and the original cap appeared to melt away like a soda can....new replacement one seemed to be steel instead of aluminum or white metal

its not alternate if its the same part ...look it up and im pretty sure youll agree they are one in the same ...parts are made by sachs not vw or mb...close to $30 at local mb dealer here...vw part was 1/3 the price online (but i will admit i was in a hurry and just went to mb for mine)

long ebay link

i did that to my mine...didnt like the gap between body and stop cap so i cut some rubber gaskets to take up the slack and couldnt see any reason at all for it to effect safety or alignment
