WTB: Right Rear Spindle (or Knuckle) for w124 wagon

My 1987 300TD wagon W124 is in the shop and they are talking about me possibly needing a new right, rear spindle or knuckle (sorry, I don't know the exact terms). This is the part which holds the outer part of the rear wheel bearing. Here are the details of the repair, if you care:
http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/diesel-discussion/402533-shop-having-trouble-w124-rear-wheel-bearing-replacement.html#post3984609



I am just trying to cover all of the bases before I speak to the garage again.



Does anyone have the right rear spindle/knuckle which would be compatible for my w124/s124 1987 300TD wagon? If so, could I get a price for it? I know that shipping will be a lot in addition to the part price, but my car may be DOA if I cannot get this part. Thanks in advance.

Quick check of the EPC shows you need 124 350 11 32 for the rear right knuckle. It is a different part number than the sedans and seems to be exclusive to the wagons. The list price is $1050 but Keyes Mercedes has it for $718.20

w123fanman-
Thanks for looking that up for me. I used to use the free MB EPC, but since they started charging, I am less able to look up part numbers. Thank you.

Given that you're in California, gotta think you could find a pretty decent used one at a yard. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market will get you all the yards in your area.

Parshoot-
I did try car-part.com but could not find the rear spindle. Every search I did would only find front versions. Maybe I missed it on their very long list of parts. But thank you for the suggestions.

To close things here, the shop was able to finally get the bearing out and didn't mess up the spindle/knuckle, so I am good for now. If the left side goes soon, I will definitely put up another request. Thanks everyone for your help.

Parts from similar year TE wagons will almost certainly work as well.

I looked this up and came up with a bunch ranging from $ 200 to $ 30 Early R129 SL , Early W202 C class and W124 E look to be the same. Just be sure if you have 4 channel ABS that there is a place for the wheel speed sensor.

For the W124 both the bearing and the rotor are larger than the sedans

I suspect, but can't say for certain that they are interchangeable over most years
Not clear if things 4matic or ASD would be unique.

Best to change out the entire assembly, getting the bearing placed correctly requires setting tools.

Rear bearing failure seems to be a random event. One failure does not imply the other side will fail anytime soon.

Only failure I've seen was on an 89 wagon with over 300k.
