    Does anyone know where I might get a magnetic sump plug for an A160, do mercedes make one?

    Seen some on ebay but they look like they are probably alloy rather than steel.

    Thanks in advance..

    I suppose you could get a std steel one and drill it and fit a magnetic.

    Not sure if its worth it as i only see mag drain plugs on the trucks at work on the gearboxs and the diffs.

    Never seen one on an engine yet, some of them have done over a million kms:)
