Mercedes Part Numbers

Does anyone know the subtle differences in Mercedes part numbers for identical looking parts? I need to replace the A/C Pushbutton for my car (1996 S420)...Part number is 140 830 24 85. I found one out of a 97 E320 that looks identical, but the part number is 140 830 26 85. I asked the dealership, but naturally they have no clue. Any ideas? Do you think it's safe to plug in and try?

The 7th and 8th digits in that format of part number is a "revision" number. It's possible that your original part has been superceded by this new part. It's also possible that it won't work at all. Did the dealer tell you that the first number is what you needed? or is that the number on your busted part? I don't have my parts program with me, so I can't check it right now.

There used to be a page on the Mercedes Veterens site that explained this, but it seems to have disappeared.

The number on the original (broken) part is 210 830 04 85. MB has a "current" part number of 140 830 24 85. Interesting...based on your explaination, it would mean that the one on the E320 140 830 26 85 is more current than the one the dealer is stocking?

Not really. Two different versions may be the current part on two different cars. If the dealer gave you your current part number, then it's unlikely that the other part will be an exact match. It may mount differently or operate differently, etc.

A simple example to illustrate this is the third brake light on a 560SL. For the '86 and '87 model years, the part number is 107 820 07 56. For the '88 and '89 model years, the part number is 107 820 09 56. Those parts are not interchangeable.

Maybe I should have said version number instead of revision number.

The W140 chassis(from 1996 w/o rear A/C) requires the 140-830-24-85. The 140-830-26-85 is only for the C208 (CLK) chassis.
The W210 chassis uses a 210-830-32-85.

Thank you for the clarification. I guess the software must be a little different. Thanks for the advice gentlemen. I appreciate it.
