Howdy. The splash shield under my wagon finally crapped out, and I'd like to get a new one before Winter comes along. I know the part number is 2115242130, but ordering it is proving to be a challenge; I can find it listed on the sites of most online shops, but, after ordering, I get notified that upon further review they don't actually have the part. Anyone know if there is either A) a site that is likely to have it, either in the US or overseas, and B) if there is an alternative/compatible product. Thanks in advance.

Also, I'm seeing an alternate part number of 2115242430; is it a compatible variant?

2115242430 is not compatible. Three part #s shown are for 211.282 - a2115240401 & current a2115240501 are OE metal alternate if you can find one. Other than this might I suggest hitting the bone yards.

Likely because you have a 4matic.

Thank you very much with this. 2115242130 is out of stock everywhere. Trying to see now if I can find either 211 524 0401 or 211 524 0501. Do you know what the difference is between those two? MB parts center tells me this: "Our system does not show any other options, only the direct replacement. We can not guarantee fitment of one of the other part numbers so we will not attempt it unless you understand that it would not be returnable".

What does your local Mb dealer parts counter have to say.
2115242130 is not in stock at the local dealer, and not available online from MB, Pelican or several other of the online usual suspects. I found a purveyor on Ebay in Lithuania, with the correct part number and the fitment seems to be a match, but when I enter my vehicle info it says it's not compatible. 211 524 04 01 appears to have been superseded by 211 524 05 01 (which is very expensive, btw), and appears to be designed for 4Matics with skid plates (mine doesn't have a skid plate). Trying to see if anyone makes an aftermarket version. Found a company in the UK that manufactures steel skid plates, but I don't know if I need to go that crazy. Right now, I'm leaning towards emailing the company in Lithuania and seeing what they have to say about the fit.

Yeah, this is the one I referred to above; I just goofed with Lithuania instead of Latvia. When I enter my vehicle info into the compatibility checker, however, it comes back as not being compatible. The merchant's fitment list doesn't include E320 4Matic wagons, only sedans, so I'm thinking that might be the issue; I don't believe there's any difference between the wagon and sedan when it comes to this part. The chasis codes line up with what they refer to as an S211 T-Model E320 4Matic wagon. What does the "T-Model" refer to?

Received a confirmation from Latvia about the fit, and placed the order with ebay. Now, hopefully, they actually have it in stock. Fingers crossed. :)
