I have an exhaust hanger which has rusted out. It is the one in front of the right rear wheel. Anyone have a part #, or is this the same as other Mercedes hangers?
Thanks,

mine are rusted too for some reason. Has it broken or do you just not like the look?

No, the rust has resulted in the u-bolt loosening so the hook comes adrift from the rubber donut. It is so rusty I am afraid to tighten it. The u-bolt is a standard piece, but the hook that attaches is also rusty, so In want to replace it all.
As expected my local MB dealer wouldnt help. Paret said they couldnt look it up,,, Mercedes home office refused to.
I will call my brother in Germany and have him get it for me...or should I try Europa...but my purchase experience with them was appalling so I dont want to go there..
All this for a 10$ part they probably have.

I didnt notice your was older. Can you just not go to a muffler shop and have them fix it?

I don't see any u-bolt on the EPC, and without your VIN, it's hard to know for sure. Also, Federalizers have been known to make a lot of non-standard modifications.

That being said, you can try P/N: A.463.492.21.41. It is the right angled bracket that goes into the rubber donut and is bolted to a braket welded on the pipe.

Thanks, Dutch.
My VIN is WDB46322717068568
The part sounds right. I just wanted to fix it myself. Muffler shop is last resort. Besides, Im30 miles from anywhere

Part number I gave you before is correct, unless the Feneralizer fiddled something.
