Sender Unit A0055423717

Hi all,

I'm looking for a Sender Unit (A0055423717) for my 1989, W460.

The fuel guage has stopped working, and after a process of elimination (wiring check etc), it must be the Sender Unit that needs replacing. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on one, new or second hand, please let me know.

Thanks in advance. SBB.

If you get desperate, you can apparently buy a new one here for around Euro-200 incl. tax.:

(I have never used this on-line trader, so cannot vouch for them)

You need one of these to get the sender unit out.

Have you dismantled it to see if the thin wire inside is intact?  It may be repairable.

You can certainly get a new one from your local MB dealer parts dept.

As for used, try ebay, particularly the German one: ebay.de.

It will be the thin wire. "Resistance Wire" Almost guaranteed. Talk to a telecoms expert - they might be able to find you a snippet you could use. Top Tip: make a pic or take a snap to guide you for the reinstatement. Good luck!
