Correct Differential Oil for 2000 E55?

4748 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  JamesBahn
WIS and AllData are a little confusing. They mention two different part numbers; one for LSD's and the other without. I was always under the impression that LSD was not an option.

Any insight?

I am showing A 000 289 28 03 (MB Hypoid Gear Oil 85W90) as the correct oil for my unmodified diff. Can anyone confirm?

That's correct. Some say even the 75w85 is okay. Fluids are confusing, don't get too caught up trying to make sense of it all. Too many options.
Im always using "Castrol SAF-XJ (75w140)" from MB #: "001 989 52 03/10"......:thumbsup:

What diff are you using? LSD or open? I'm assuming you're talking about your M113 powered W202, correct?
