W114 W115 NLA Parts Thread: Not available in the EU/ Special order or OEM options

Sadly, several key parts are increasingly NLA from Mercedes Benz. Thought I'd post the Part #s with options for others who, like me, are wondering what best options remain. My car is a 76 240D.

Thoughts on better OEM options welcome -if you'd like to help fellow owners like myself, please post other NLA parts I've missed in the same format (Description -> Part # -> Alternative Part with purchase link)

1) Radiator A1145011101 Special Order from MB

2) Oil Cooler A1081800265 Special Order from MB

3) Heater Blower A1158350207 Special Order from MB

4) Centre Exhaust A1154900115 Special Order from MB

5) Front Sub Frame Mount Kit 1153301875 Meyle Aftermarket Option (Guessing they're better than Febi?)

Why I will never do business with DieselKraut again...

What is all this "Special Order from Mercedes" stuff?

There's no such thing as a "special order" from Mercedes. They either have the part or they don't, whether it be existing stock or a reproduction they're having made. If they do you can order it from any Mercedes dealer, regardless of the location.

You need to go to the Classic website parts page and enter the part number, nothing more.

https://partssearch.mercedes-benz-cl...#gotosearchbox

I can only assume that PP is referring to these parts as "special order" because they want to be sure they get their money up front, as they're non-returnable. Otherwise, there's nothing "special" about any of them.

If you're questioning the quality of an OEM part, just look at the price. Our good friend URO will be at the bottom (cheapest, poorest quality) and then it will gradually increase to the reboxers like Febi and Meyle, and then to the OE suppliers like Lemförder, for example.

Be an educated buyer and whatever you do, don't cheap out! Always start by checking the Classic Center parts search to see if it's still available from Mercedes, and then go from there.

Many online parts suppliers use generic parts databases and will show lots of parts that they can never deliver. As Dan say use the link (put an A in front of the number with no dashes or spaces) to see if it is available first before ordering from anywhere including dealers.

The "A" isn't necessary to search on the Classic parts site. The number will suffice as long as you don't put any spaces in it.

Also, if the part comes up, be sure to click on the part number to see additional information. This is really helpful when you see things that are "out of stock", for instance. See examples below.

I was looking for a set of rear springs for my 1965 220SEb a while back, and when I looked at the Classic Center's parts search, they were "unavailable". Not NLA, unavailable.

That meant they were out of stock and would be receiving more in the near future. Clicking on the part number expands the listing and gives additional information like this.

Sound advice. Not sure what options exist for a wear and tear part like the engine strut stabilizer A1152400148. Shows as NLA on the Classic Parts website. How would one know if a quality aftermarket option exists?

Why I will never do business with DieselKraut again...

When faced with this situation, the first thing I do is Google the part number and the word "Mercedes".

In this case it doesn't appear that there's an aftermarket option, as the links that come up in the search are just old links to the OE part.

eBay Germany is an excellent source for NOS stuff, but you have to be fortunate enough to find a seller that will ship internationally. The Mercedes Club of Germany also has a LOT of NOS stuff, but to buy it you've got to be a member. They'll let foreigners join for just that reason...

https://mercedesclubs.de

This is their online catalog. Don't go here unless you've got a LOT of time on your hands:

Spoke to Bernick at MB Classic US. My first time speaking to him. He was surprised to learn that any demand existed for the Heater Blower Motor (A1158350207) and the Engine Stabilizer (A1152400148). I explained that zero aftermarket options existed for these parts and that Mercedes should do a limited remanufacture run as there were literally no options out there.

Bernick shared that he would share this information if he saw enough evidence of interest, so if you need any W115 parts that are NLA, please email: [email protected]
