Part Number Explanation?

Can anyone tell me what the part number breakdown is? For example I assume that PN 210 685 00 91 goes to a W210 Chassis. Other than that I have no idea. Does anyone have an explanation or a decoder?

Generic parts like nuts and bolts and fluids often have 000 or 001 prefixes.

Second three digits refer to Mercedes' component "group" system

See http://www.startekinfo.com/StarTek/o...stedDocId=3000

Sometime parts are common between C, E, or S class, and you'll then see part numbers from "another" car applicable to yours. Depends which car came out first.

There is no "decoder". There is a general theme Mercedes uses to number parts in order to achieve a certain level of consistency. The first three digits may refer to the chassis the part was originally designed for (210 in this case). Digits 4 and 5 generally refer to the group in which the part is referenced both by parts and service manuals (68 in this case). Digits 7 and 8 generally refer to the version of that particular item. The rest, AFAIK, seems arbitrary. The numerical sequence of 210 685 00 91 would be 685 91 210 00.
