Deterioated Radio Knobs- GREAT NEWS

Went to my local independent mechanic Silvio a few days ago for an unrelated service and happened to mention the "chewed-up " radio knob and that I may have to spend $$ to get it repaired. Well Silvio informed me that he can get the knob replaced.

This morning I went to the shop, he pried off the old knob, popped in the new one, Voila! Only charged me the $5 part cost. Got this info for everyone who has this problem:

if Becker part # Q4820112
if Alpine Q4820111

The part number is for my 98 E300. It is amazing how much better I feel not having to look at that old chewed up thing. Now post a reply here if you have the same problem. I'm wondering how many people were in the same boat.

My mechanic ordered the replacement knob from the MB Dealer using the parts number above. You might want to call the MB Dealer to find out part # for your radio. As for the volume control, just turn it slowly and it should work

Vol. not working properly

Hi kennyhwa,

Just to let you know, I service all Mercedes radios, changers, etc.. I have found that the Vol. control will go bad on your radio by first becoming unstable by not working everytime you move it. At first it will work only if you move it slowly but then even that will not work. The control in your radio is not a normal type of control. It is a digital control type and works completely different from the non digital type in that it adjusts the volume using a HEX control not a potentiometer. I can repair your unit when you get tired of fooling with the control or when it gives up on you. It runs under $100 to get done, which is less than factory repair and it comes with a new knob. If I can help you or anyone else with this type of problem feel free to contact me via my WEB Site at: www.lajollaaudiorepair.com

Funny, I had the chewed up knob problem on my 99 230k, took it to the dealer, and he swapped in a brand new radio under warranty instead of just swapping the knob!
