I heard that you can also purchase magnetized oil pan drain bolt. I am also interested in buying transmission and oil pan magnets. Where to buy?

speaker magnets work

A friend of mine dis-assembles old speakers. The coil magnets in the back are like thick body washers.. so they attach to the pan without much height but have lots of surface area. You do have to drop the pan to put in.

oil pan magnet

You dont have to drop the pan! Auto acc stores sell a magnet that goes on the outside bottom of the pan! Abe G

Thanks to all. I think I'll go with the "original, straight from deutschland, carefully aged and hand inspected" piece from the dealer. Yeah, and Donald Trump has a full head of hair. For $3, why not? What's the difference in the 2 MB parts listed in this thread?

I thought TheDon was being the joker when I went to the linked website and saw the first picture at the top of the page. Gotta scroll down.

the 220-271-00-98 has been superceeded by the 169-371-00-03, so technically if you went to the dealer and ordered the 220 number they would give you the 169 number, see picture below, it is directly from mercedes EPC

Whoa! The price went up on the magnet!

So I wanted this magnet for my transmission pan you are all talking about. It is a great addition to my 190E 722.4 tranny. However... That sucker is now $20 at Pelican Parts! $20 for a magnet that used to be under $5. Ick. I might try a standard aftermarket magnet, maybe from the web site that was above. Any guidance on this?

The magnet does not need to be MB specific. GM trans have a 1 1/4" square magnet that is 1/16" thick. Others are similar. Dig around a trans shop junk pile or talk to your regular garage person. Even new it should be just a few $ at another brands parts dept.

Magnetic drain plugs don't have enough surface area but are better than nothing if you can't easily get inside the pan ( like a engine oil pan. )

Magnet for tranny pan

Thanks. I think I will look around. My 2.3-16v is in great shape mainly because I buy OEM parts when it makes sense and makes a difference and buy affordable and sensible when it doesn't matter. Any idea what the size is for the OEM magnet. I need an idea of the size of the magnet I am looking for to fit in the flat spots in the pan.

Look at the pan for some marks or dimple, other brands do this as a "put magnet here" assembly marking. Baring that, the magnet can go anywhere away from the filter suction. ( suction flow might dislodge stuck metal clogging the filter. )

New superseeded parts number for magnet

I did some searching and found the two older magnets for the tranny. Then I found that the new one is now an old one.
The new part number is 000 988 01 52
Fastlane Pelican Parts has these bad boys for $4.75 MBZ OEM.
I will order two of them and be done with it. The original 169 part is something like $6 or 7. The 220 271 00 98 part is between $16 and 20. Then they all want to charge 7 to 12 dollars shipping. Still no Dealership near me so I will order 2 of the 000 988 01 52 tranny pan magnet from Pelican Parts for $4.75 each and pay about $4.00 shipping. Paid $less than $13 for both and shipping. It will get the job done.
Thanks
