Hi guys thanks for accepting me in the group.
I am looking to replace some parts in the near future , not because they are faulty ,just as a preventive maintenance and I was wondering if there is an after market option for the thermostat, and not having to replace the whole assembly.
Thank you.
 
Welcome to the forum.

Ebay is a good place to start looking, and so is a German firm called Autodoc.

I looked everywhere, I even asked at FCP euro or kleeman, VRP , you name it.
Maybe someone with the same engine or M279 can give advice as well.
Thanks for your reply.
 
I presume you've tried Googling the Mercedes part number?

If you don't have access to the Mercedes WIS and EPC, there's a website <7zap.com> which is very useful for finding part numbers, and sometimes shows a supplier as well.

Good luck; you're probably going to need it. Very expensive cars with high maintenance costs don't get any cheaper to maintain as the cars themselves get older and cheaper...

I've got WIS and STAR , they only sell the complete assembly.
I am.doing most of the work/maintenance on the car , I just find it funny that we cannot find just the thermostat , but instead we have to buy the whole assembly.
 
V12-specific pattern parts aren't really commercially viable because of the low demand. Low servicing costs were never a priority for Mercedes; they have never wanted grubby-fingered oiks like most of us owning their cars, and fixing and servicing them on the cheap, away from the dealer network, as they age. It's the cost of owning a Mercedes.

Funny it isn't...

😀😀you're right about that.
I'll dig a little bit more and if I ever find just the part I need I will update here.
