Well, the Dealer is supposed to be able to use your VIN Number or some of the other Numbers to look up the Proper part.
I don't know on 240Ds but there is at least 3 different versions of the linkages.

Yep we need more information too!

You might be able to find a picture of what you need in the FSM chapter 30 - but like 300Dman says there are several versions.

As you look through the FSM you'll notice that the linkages are described in two general areas - by the mountings on the bulkhead and the linkage systems that fit on the engine.

The throttle linkage has several bushings. You need to provide more info.

Typically, there is a small plastic bushing behind the accelerator pedal. There is another at the firewall. There are also roller bushings on the linkages downstream, closer to the engine.

The pedal and firewall bushings are available through online stores or your dealer. The throttle linkage roller bushings *may* be available separately from your dealer, but only at your dealer. I have not seen these sold separately online.

As mentioned, there are a number of 'em, also different engine numbers.

Can you post a pic?

Have a helper step on the go pedal while you observe, some of these can have a hair line crack visible only when using the pedal.
