    Hi all
    Don't know if this is in the right section or should it have gone into General.

    Problem is I want to change my coolant but when I went to empty the rad the drain plug has broken by the looks of it and I found this in the car and suspect it is the item I want (photos)

    How easy are these to get hold of and would a supplier send such a small item in the post do you think

    Yep, they're quite common to break as the plastic gets brittle with age and the heat.

    Most MB dealers should stock this part if you know of one locally, or if not mail order from Dieselman's suggestion (www.mercedes-benz-parts.co.uk)

    The silver one.
    I just pulled my bottom hose off.

    Did not realise it had a drain screw until i serviced it the next week.
