Part number: MER-0039979594 is a new, unused Genuine Mercedes engine timing chain. Timing chains are like timing belts in that they keep the major components of the engine's combustion cycle in sync. Timing chains are much more durable then timing belts and have to be changed less frequently. While timing belts are changed anywhere from every 40-90K miles (see your owners manual), most timing chains are suitable for hundreds of thousands of miles unless a specific event (like excessive noise, etc.) has occurred.
Genuine Mercedes parts are recommended by the factory for your Mercedes. You can expect replacement trim pieces to fit without issue, and suspension and engine parts will offer a greater life and better performance.
