    I'm selling my 124 230TE so I took it for an early MOT today and it failed on the load sensing valve which was leaking. I didn't get under the car so haven't seen this but I need a new or used part to pass the MOT.

    Does anyone have a spare one hanging around?

    Also, does anyone know the part number please?


    TIA.


    Paul.

    Strange as it may seem the part number is from a 202 :dk:

    A202 320 02 58

    If memory serves me right these are mega expensive. Time to do a scrapyard search. :crazy:

    They are expensive but its worth investigating as its probably the pipe union thats leaking..

    I got a second hand part from three pointed parts, mine was making a loud clanging noise.

    Thanks Jay. I'll get the union looked at.


    Does anyone have an idea of the cost of the part new or used, please?

    Olly and Jack at PCS did mine just over a year ago. The valve cost £269 + VAT.

    I think they're nearer to £350 from UK dealers now, so the one from the US looks pretty cheap. If you're selling it, maybe a used one from three pointed parts is the way to go.

    As Jaymanek mentioned, it's worth double checking though as the sls pipework rots quite badly, so there are plenty of potential areas for leaking, and I don't imagine the mot tester spent too long on diagnosis.

    Mine was not leaking. It just didnt work. Compared to the other things its had in the last 2-3 years the valve was a drop in the ocean.

    How does £50 plus postage sound?
