Hi, I just bought a C200 Kompressor, production year 2000, that has almost been unused since new (1,800 miles). As I'm checking through the car I find some "servo motor" behind the front right wheel and the control arm is missing. I have no idea what it's for, what parts missing and how to fix it. Anyone has any suggestions/advice?

Yes ,as above ,,, the control arm that is missing should link to the bracket which is u bolted to the stabiliser bar just below.
You need another one ,,from a breaker/wrecker or a new part from a dealer or supplier.

You are in the wrong forum - a MY2000 C200 is a "W202".

Thank's for the information regards the control arm, mystery solved! :)

My one is a W203 with production year 2000 but I'll guess it means it's a 2001 model year. I just followed the VIN decoder who sad:

Release Date2000-04-19
Delivery Date2000-05-10

Ah, yes. "Model Year" can be a foreign term for non-USA vehicle owners. Model year defines the chassis version and most all revisions. There are some minor changes that happen mid-year based on production date, but Model Year is the most definitive. Your car is a MY2001. They generally start the build for a new model year around April of the prior calendar year.
