Note that not only the number of pins is important, but also the layout of the pins. The early OVP will not plug into the late socket, or vice-versa, regardless of pin quantity.

I would think so since Dave got those pics from an auto parts web site. Plus there are still plenty of MBs that use them. I'm too cheap though, I've been nabbing mine from the JYs.
Regards, Eric

Based on the frequency of OVP problems reported, it does seem to be a design weakness. I'm told that the location of the OVP on the firewall directly under the windshield makes it highly susceptible to moisture and corrosion.

same problem happened today with a new ovp.... i still think its an ovp issue...[B]here's why.... i pulled the new ovp and got the car to start up.[/

i think i have one more ovp and two fuel pump relays

fortunately these parts are spares.... it will cost me real money if i have to replace the fuel pumps

I'll second that on the location. That was my thinking when I just very recently replaced mine, but off the cuff, I couldn't come up with a better place! Although mine is a 190 & lots less space for sure.

my 300se 1989 .It is fitted with a single fuse OVP.

Occasionally a jump start blows the solder junction of the zener diode leaving the top fuse intact. i was able to resolder mine back .
