Camshaft "A" should be the intake. Bank one should be the bank with Cylinder one.

John I think you're right Bank 2 would be 456 and Camshaft B would be exhaust does that sound correct? So my code reader is telling me Camshaft A on Bank 2. And looking at the front of the V6 Bank 2 would be on the right side and the sensor on intake cam is faulty. Bought one today and it goes i tomorrow

That's the way I interpret it, unless MB does something non-standard, like numbering the bank 4-5-6 instead of 2-4-6...

Yeah, North American convention is to number the cylinders by the position of the rod on the crank, starting at the timing end, so a V-8 would have 1-3-5-7 on one bank and 2-4-6-8 on the other. (And, Bank 2 starts with cylinder #2). Mercedes has always (as far as I know) done it differently.

Regardless, glad you got it sorted!

A 2011 with about 85K on it , the reader says Camshaft Position Sensor, Camshaft A, Bank 2
Is Camshaft A intake or exhaust? Bank 2 is on the driver's side , correct?
