Need info on engine serial number


I bought a 2010 ML350 bluetec engine with instalation off a scrap yard less then 2 year ago. Engine let go again 1 year and 1/2 later.

After my mechanic inspected my motor he saw a sticker of a rebuild engine company near my block. I called and ask if they do any job for this scrap yard. They answers me yes. I also ask them if they rebuild my engine. They did not wanna give me that info.

I now think the scrapyard just removed my motor and send it to get rebuild it instead of swapping for a used motor that I paid for.

I ask my lawyer to see if there anything I can do. Already the fact that the scrapyard lied about selling me a used motor is enough for me to win in court. But if I can prove they never change my motor it will be even better for me.

His there anyway to find out with my vin number want my engine serial number is.

My vin number
This the serial number of my engine right now in my truck
642 820 40 888 760

Thanks for the help

The very first thread at the top of the the General Mercedes forum has a link for checking VIN numbers.
Your ML350 left the factory with the engine number 642820 40 882388.
