Mercedes Balance Shaft - Genuine Mercedes 2720302872
  • Open uri20150826 384 hb85e6

Referred to as a differential shaft, a common source of failure on higher mileage M276 Mercedes engines

The original balance shaft installed during the assembly process by Mercedes is made from metal that is too soft, particularly in the timing gear. Over the course of its service life the timing gear can fail causing engine timing to skip resulting in severe engine damage. It is recommended to replace this component before severe engine damage can occur.

Per Mercedes it is required to also replace the counterweight, part number 2720340822, when replacing the balance shaft.
