    hi all

    i wondered if someone may be able to help my friend with some information.


    he has a 190e 2.5v6 automatic.

    1, does anyone know the model number ? ie i know my c class is a w204.

    2, he needs some parts for the car but is struggling to find anyone that can supply. shopping list includes;
    exhaust system
    electric window motor
    etc

    the car is a daily driver but he has been advised it's time to change by his current garage due to parts not available which i'm sure is not the case.

    thanks in advance.

    If it's a 190 the designation is a W201. There is no 2.5 V6 - it is either a 2.6 inline six or 2.5 diesel or petrol 4.

    He will need the VIN for the car, apart from MB itself (a good source) there are specialists like Mercman, Three Pointed Parts, Euromerc among others.

    Good luck - most parts are available new or 2nd hand, no need to change!

    Plenty pf parts for a 201 about.

    He wants an exhaust system, if he wants stock they will be available new for MB, second hand from ebay, breakers etc. Or he could get something made up for sensible money, certainly not a deal breaker.

    Electric window motor, I am sure ebay or a breaker will be the place for a second hand working unit, for not a lot of money.

    The best place for 190 parts is

    Mercedes-190.co.uk

    There are always a few members breaking 190's over there
