How did it die? If not mechanical failure, and it's high mileage, just replace the regulator-brush assembly.

It should swap though the wires on the back might be in a different clock position. Big wire goes to battery, small wire is warning light.

In order to get a 97 C280 running I used a Bosch 70-115 from a 95 E320 to replace a Bosch 60 -120 . I have a 97 E320 parts car with a Valeo and it looks like that would swap out for a Bosch.

For future readers: this may be the cheaper approach
