Did you get that figure from the dealer parts dept. based on your full VIN ???Guys, this is looking like a massive bill.
Replacement Wiring Loom: 850...wtf?!
Can anyone repair the damn thing?
Or can you just find one from somewhere else?
Don't just use one of the online epc websites to decide what part number you want, make sure you get the supplying dealer to work that out from your vin / reg number. Then if you get the wrong part you will be entitled to a replacement. I did not realise the 220 was affected by this issue, thought it was only the 280/320. I have just replaced my 320 loom and it cost me £670ish from inchcape (If you use the offer code promo10 you would get an additional 5% off that I later found out).Yikes looks like prices have gone up just checked on EPC and I get an E220 wiring harness as part number A124 440 39 33.
Check on the inchcape site reveals a list price of £1038 with a discounted price of £934.20
The one I have just fitted had a manufacturers label dated early this year, so I guess they have rationalised when they have gone out for a new batch.MB have definetely reduced the engine harness variants available as about six months ago there were lots more engine harness variants available.
Charan, I may have you confused with someone else, but hasn't someone on another thread pointed out that all you need on your engine is the maf sensor re-wiring as you have the 4 cylinder engine which isn't as badly affected as the M104?im getting paranoid about this issue - i had my immobiliser disabled before i started getting these idling problems that have lead to me 'requiring' a loom. any ideas if the two could be related?
