Part number: MER-0029978494 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 offer you the opportunity to repair your classic or modern vehicle with the same excellent quality parts that they came off the factory production line with. Mercedes engineers their cars to last and currently offers parts and support for their vehicles, some more than 40 or 50 years old.
