Mercedes TRP Information:
To order any TRP Part, you will now need your Lock Smith ID username and password. Do not call a dealership without one, they cannot sell you parts. Sign up here, it will take two to three weeks so do it now, not when a car is waiting in the bay. You will need copies of your business license and declaration page from you insurance company proving you have insurance. You DO NOT NEED A BOND! This is only if you wish to get an employee a username and password of his own which I don’t suggest you do. There is a minor background check: NASTAF LSID
Order the parts via startekinfo here, just put the part number in the comments field and select a part like a steering lock or EIS in the drop down list: Parts Ordering
You will need a legible copy of the driver’s license and registration for vehicle owner. Best to scan and email. Arrange this with the contacts in the parts department. You should also fill out a form giving you the authority to work on the security aspects of the vehicle. The best form is here: LSID Form
Information about the Vehicle Security Group and SDRM:
The SDRM and NASTF will only be successful with active participation from our industry. I urge you to join in the discussions and work to keep the aftermarket viable. We as European specialists have a unique perspective on the industry and our voices need to be heard.
If you are truly in a situation where you are certain that particular part, tool or information the dealer can get and you have not been able to get please consider filing a NASTF request. I realize this is more about information, tools, and programming, but parts are now more of an issue than ever for us all:

Keys are just programmed parts right?
