Part number: MER-2720505347 is a new, unused Genuine Mercedes engine timing camshaft sprocket. Its important to inspect camshaft gears when performing a timing service to check the wear on the sprocket. The cam gears are usually driven by a timing chain with the cams turning at half engine speed. This is why the sprocket has twice as many teeth compared to the crankshaft gear.

Manufactured under the direction of Mercedes, expect excellent quality and a premium price since these parts are exclusively available through the Mercedes Dealership network.
You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your Mercedes are not necessarily manufactured by Mercedes. No cause for concern, as Mercedes designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for Mercedes for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Hella, Bosch, Bilstein and Lemforder. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine Mercedes parts box and find a Bosch branded part inside.
