Meyle was a German company when they started out. Their sales spiel was that they re-engineered parts to be better than OE. But the problem has always been that their parts were made in Turkey, India et al. No doubt by now they've gone the Chinese route. But their packing boxes proudly say 'Germany' on them....parts aren't stamped 'Germany' because they most definitely are not. Whatever they have that's good, is just happenstance....they most definitely are not in our corner. You could even say their marketing efforts are sinister.

^This. About the only thing that is guaranteed to be German with Meyle parts is the box.

The sender can be seen from above and reached from below. I find it easiest to work on a clean engine.

The OE sending unit is available aftermarket under the Hella/VDO brand names. These are the only ones to buy, and if they become unavailable, it will be OE/Genuine MB only.

There should be no need to remove the starter on any W124 to replace the sending unit. It is usually located on the oil filter housing, the location varies on different engines. And yes, clearance may be tight.
