Trying to help my grandpa out with his 95 SL600. He took it to a shop the other day after it threw itself in limp mode and they diagnosed the problems... The left throttle actuator, right throttle actuator and throttle control module are all out and need replaced. At least that's what the shop is telling him. All this is going to cost around $15,000 to be repaired, which is something my grandpa isn't willing to do.
I looked up the part numbers on them and here's the prices for them new coming from Mercedes themselves...
Left throttle actuator - $3,056 Part #000-141-5625
Right throttle actuator - $3,680 Part #000-141-5525
Throttle control module - $3,952 Part #129-545-2232
Seems completely outrageous to me... So my question is, is there a cost effective way of getting these things fixed?
I looked up and saw that the actuators can actually be repaired instead of replaced... Anyone know of a good place to send them to have that done?
If it's going to cost that much though, I think he's just going to throw the flag up
Also, if anyone has these parts just laying around or has a good hook-up, please let me know.
I appreciate any help that I receive.
