Hood pad

I need to replace the hood pad on my 93' 190e 2.6 I did a research on fastlane on how much the cost of the hood pad on 93' 2.6 the cost is $90+ and on 93' 2.3 its only $30.My question is what is the difference? Can i just use the 2.3 hood pad on my 2.6?Thanks

I just installed one on a W124. Bought it from a dealer for $65, but if you want to save dollars you can order them online at www.mercedesautoparts.com, which lists them by body number and takes custom orders. There By the way, I discovered too late (I'm a newbie) that the W124's have releases on the hood stops which allow the hood to be raised to vertical. Good idea for gluing on the pad. Good luck.

That link was not correct. Can you verify it. I neefd a pad for my 190D. Id did replace the pad on my 190E 2.6 a few years ago. I used contact cement to install it. Be warned, once the two sides meet, they will not come apart!

Honestly, until I get the pad for the 190D, I don't know what the difference is. I was hoping the Diesel pad would be extra sound absorbing.:p Although, the engine is not really that loud.

I'm not sure of exact years/engines the differences apply to, but certainly later models have LARGER hood pads, covering nearly the whole underside. My '86 2.0E has a very small one covering max 30% of the rear of the hood. Presumably, that is why you see different prices for the '93 2.3 and your car.
Apparently, the difference is quite noticeable, so stick with the full one.. in fact I plan to upgrade myself.

later

Russ

The entire line to their hood page is:
www.mercedesautoparts.com/www/parts/aesthetics/hood_pads.htm

[That is /parts/aesthetics/hood_pads. htm. For some reason the link didn't post correctly.]

I checked it this morning before posting and tried the home page just now to be sure.

My dealership parts guy gave me a can of 3M spray adhesive as well as a tube. He said to spray the whole thing and then seal around the edges and through the middle with the liquid. Neither was for high temperature application, but he told me it is what they always use.

One poster recommends doing a 6 inch strip at the front first, letting the rest hang, and then gluing the rest. I was concerned about placement, so did a dry run and then glued it all at once.
