Part number: MER-1570500100 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 represent the best value in Mercedes parts. When you consider the quality, price, and lifetime that you get from the part you quickly realize there is no substitute for Genuine Mercedes engineering
