Can confirm 201 models use this system. I think Fred has one of the valves I bought but never used. -Curt On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 10:26:46 AM EST, Meade Dillon via Mercedes wrote: On the peach parts forum, there's a claim that the 201 models used this

I would agree for the most part as a purist, however, I see the circulating pump as a time bomb which, if not fused to prevent potential damage to the rest of the system, I would easily replace wth a more reliable arrangement. I noticed the circulating pump on the 400E has been disconnected.

124 vice 123: I'd change it because the 1995 E300 Diesel monovalve is not rebuild-able (no insert is sold) and is unique to the 1995 E300 model and is pretty darn pricey from MB ($140 or more? I could be wrong on that). In addition, the replacement monovalve available from MB has a bad reputation

Another fix for something that isn’t broken. If you use a genuine MB monovalve insert, they work just find. In fact, the climate control works exceptionally well when repaired correctly. That is, it requires no adjustment at all by the user. I haven’t touched mine in weeks or months, except

On the peach parts forum, there's a claim that the 201 models used this arrangement, so if there are official MB parts support for things like the vacuum controlled monovalve, that would be huge. - Max Charleston SC On Wed, Feb 14, 2018 at 10:24 AM, Dan Penoff via Mercedes <

For $100 that looks like a no brainer. These guys are really good, so I’m sure it is well designed and thought out. -D > On Feb 14, 2018, at 10:17 AM, Meade Dillon via Mercedes > wrote: > >
