M.B Spares & Service has a great reputation for delivering
the right part the first time. And it is for that reason that we don't
have an online store.
Back in the old day before the internet and online stores, cars were much
simpler. But now that we have the technical ability to offer you an
online store cars have got so complicated that we feel good old fashioned
service is better. Here are a few of the hundred's of examples why we
would prefer to talk to you or exchange e-mails before you make your
- The W203 C class has four different types of front brake pads!
Basically it is easy to work out what suits what. The C180 has the
smaller ones and the C55 the bigger ones. But it not quite that simple.
When the C class was being sold as a run out special they fitted the C55
brake package to all models including the C180. This is a classic example
of a car that needs to have parts ordered by chassis number as many
owners of these cars will have no idea about this.
- For some reason in 1984 Mercedes-Benz made a very minor change to the
size of the O ring that seals the oil filter housing on the W102 230E
engine. It is critical to get the right one for your car. This part must
be ordered by engine number.
- Quite often there are extra parts required to fit the parts you think
you need. Once again using Brake pads as an example in most cases you
need to buy the appropriate wear sensors to go with your pads, some have
4 some have only 1. We also supply the correct fitting paste at no charge
with all brake pad sets sold.
So we hope you realise that in this modern world we would love to offer
our customers the benefits of an online store, but until Bill Gates or
some other guru works out how to build a fool proof online parts system
we are better off to stick with phone calls and e-mail exchange. You can
