Your # is incomplete. One option is to enter VIN, click datacard and check engine # here ?????? if not recognized PM VIN and I will check.Thanks Konigstiger, I'm REALLY pleased that I won't have to worry about sprocket problems! At the same time I'm almost concerned that the mechanic gave me the wrong number . . . how come Rolex11 has 2 extra digits after the 2729, compared to mine?

I dont believe I have an airmatic.... Im going to call the dealer tomorrow and find out some more. Thanks for your help..The soft balance shaft relates to the 3.5l engine, your's is a 3.2 l which at one time did have a recall on the balance shaft but I believe that was in the w210 days.
Do you have airmatic?
