Push started my 2.2 190d 5 spd,have questions
Houston ,WE HAVE A PROBLEM -Starter went Kaput at work yesterday,thought it might be a battery until I tried jumping it with a buddies Dodge truck ,it and was still a no go for ignition.The solenoid is cheaper than buying the whole starter ,any good MB solenoid suppliers out there.Me and some co -workers got it push started after finding out yeh olde starter wasnt going for its last turn,thats why these standard MBs rule.Drove off without spinning a wrench.

No "Push Start" MB s (Too easy to Damage)
1 Attachment(s)
"Pull Start" (Tow "U" under front bumper)

Ask Lee at the Buy Parts tab above about the "Bendix".

If he doesn't have it ,call these guys:

it could still be just a battery.
few and far between are the jumper cables capable of starting our diesel engines with a dead battery in the mix.

Yes a starter r and r is a fair amunt of work. before doing that I would look carefully at all electrical connections for good contact. It would be a shame to r and r the starter, install a new solinoid and discover it did not solve the problem!;)

The starters do not last forever but they are extremely long lived. I have had over 30 old benzes (mostly with high miles) or so and cannot remember ever replacing a solinoid or a starter, though it is possible I did and forgot.

I have not had to replace the solinoid (bendix).
If its having trouble turning the car, chances are you have a bad battery or more likely a bad connection some where.
Clean all your connections first especially the earth strap.
Make sure it has a good battery & give it a try.
Jumper leads have never worked for me.
You would be better with a change over starter if the solinoid is bad, the rest of the starter will be on the way out.

Good luck

Ive got it out after several extentions and doing the alot back walking ,what a PITA .Ill have it tested and find out whats up with yeh olde starter today.I thought the 300d had a tough settup getting to the starter bolts,these 190ds or almost impossible for that top bolt to get at.Im almost ready to take my 1" hole drill saw to make a access plug permanently.
