Merc 1316 - Manual - Gear Stick Housing Cover

Postby Rod B » Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:30 am

Hi Guys,
I went to pick up a bus this weekend and only 10m down the road I am left holding the gear stick in my left hand and could feel it had come out of the linkage junction box. On further investigation i found the cover had come off as the retainer tails had broken. I have attached a photo of the broken part.

I will turn the cover 90 degrees and drill and file new locator holes however i would like to obtain a replacement as it is obvious this has happened previously and will possibly happen again in the future.

Could anyone suggest where i may obtain a replacement cover. It is off a Merc 1316 with a OM352A motor. Not sure that will help. 5 speed manual.

Thanks in advance team.

Get the chassis number ready and try Whites Diesels or genuine through Mercedes

Thanks Dieselguy,
I have been in contact with whites diesel and they have been very helpful and sourced the part from overseas for me. They went above and beyond for me.

Cheers
