i agree with xserve, as you have a 96 which was the non-facelift model, the facelift model was from 97-2000
what part are you looking for?

Post Air Infusion Pump

The sound you are hearing is likely normal. It is the Air Infusion Pump (a Supercharger of sorts) that pumps oxygen into the catalytic converter at cold start-up. Have someone that knows Mercedes listen to it and tell you if it is failing or the normal roar you get for a couple of minutes after cold start-up. Save your money for something you really need.

Good Luck and Welcome to the Forum!

C as in 220

Post Air Pump at Start-up

It kinda freaked us out when we first got ours. There are so many unusual features on these cars that there's a Thread about them.

Good Luck!
