1997 E420.
I ordered a new idler pulley and tensioner pulley from Rock auto. Unfortunately, I ordered the URO brand which I now understand is junk. I cant find any other brand at Autohausaz or Partsbin except for Gates . Is there another source for OEM quality besides the dealer?
Thanks
John

Received the correct parts today from parts.com and changed out the tensioner pulley and idler pulley. The brand name was INA, which was the brand that was on the car{original}. Just an observation...I bought the tensioner but didnt change it out. The new one I received was exactly like the old one. The "sticky" indicates that the original design was faulty and has been changed for a new design but I was'nt paying attention and that is for the E320 not the E420. The new E420 tensioner is the same as the old one.
