I guessed it! I guessed it!!

Please tell me you ordered the part from MERCEDESSHOP.COM and did it yourself for $~200 (and ten minutes) instead of $650 and three days from the dealer!


Wouldn't it be nice if we all could have $3000 diagnostic equipment at our disposal!!!
Better than that, we have MERCEDESSHOP.COM - Priceless!

Unfortunantly, no.

I had to haul the car to the Benz Store and since they had it they went ahead and replaced it for me.

Yes, it is a simple thing, and I almost went ahead and bought one before I knew what the problem was. I had already replaced coils, plugs, connector, wires and fuel filter, but, several people said "Don't just throw parts at it" and I didn't have the diagnostic equip to find the problem.

The part was $279, with diagnostic time and R/R it came to $373.

I have spent much more, for much less!
