Get the VIN number to a dealer service manager and he can tell you whats been replaced...etc.
I agree...but have you ever noticed that the dealers sometime have a really hard time "looking" things up unless the car is at their dealership or you are a good customer of theirs
A freind of mine is going through an ordeal right now with a wiring harness for an E320 where the orginal owner never took the car to the MB dealer for service(allways independents)
I have gotten information about his car from my dealr(1000 miles away) where he can't seem to get anything out of the dealers in the DFW area
