tie-rod lock plate

Where the heck do you guys get these things? My go-to parts store (autopartsway.ca) states that the tie-rod assemblies for sale don't come with them, and they don't appear to have it available by itself:

I'd like to get it from a Canadian source.

Number 3 is the part I'm talking about btw:

My dealer stocks them, they're only a buck or two.

Yeah that's the only bad thing about Autopartsway, sometimes they don't carry a lot of stock of certain items. I ordered lock plates from them 5 months ago the part # was W0133-1644215. You could call them and ask when they will be getting more stock.

You can also check bimmerspecialist, but it's such a cheap part that it doesn't hurt to buy it from the dealer.

Yeah I might end up going to the dealer but the closest one is like 1 hour away. Oh well, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I ended up getting them from a local european car mechanic. Didn't even have to go to the dealer. I never get parts from them though because they're a huge rip-off but for little $0.50 parts like these it's very convenient.

The TRW tierods I got look different than the Lemforder tierods. The TRW rods don't appear to support the bending of the securing plate, it's shaped so that there is no room to bend the plate.

The Lemforders have deeper grooves so that you can bend the plate easily over. I bought the TRWs from autopartsway because the Lemforders were out of stock and I would like to get this done. Anybody know why a company would use a different design?
