It should work although Diesels tend to not run as hot so it might be smaller than you need. A 450SEL radiator should have sufficient capacity. This has been for sale forever if you're in the area - https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/pts/d/radiator-450-sel-mercedes/6350866485.html

Not mine, no stake in sale. At least check the pictures to see if a 450SEL radiator can be made to fit your car.

The top and bottom tanks of your radiator are metal so maybe a local shop can fabricate a core at reasonable cost.

Georgevlado87,

I believe I have the radiator you are looking for. I will verify when I go to the

storage unit this evening.

I will update you as soon as I put hands on it.

Regards,
Scrappy

All 116s with petrol engine used the same oil radiator.
P/n is 1161801365.
Sixto is right, you can use oil radiator from 450 or 350.

I have a m117 r107 radator I'm trying to get rid of. If you want me to measure any part of it for you I can.
