2.6 oil pan

The shop where I work has a 1989 190E 2.6 that we are salvaging and I believe the pan will fit your car. Check with someone with parts experience to confirm that it will fit and get back to me.

There are way to repair stripped drain plug threads. Most use an oversize self tapping replacement drain plug. Look into doing that before you leap into the expense of replacing the sump. They do work. It's the washer that really does the sealing trick..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
