Re: drag link?

Hello Jonnyboy,
The drag link (link between steering drop arm and n/side wheelstub) is only available as a complete unit, fom M/benz dealer only. My last checked price from a few years ago was some £120.00.
Torn boots do not constitute a MOT failure, there has to excessive wear for failure.
It may not be necessary, but not knowing your local M/benz staff, take with you your chassis number and front axle number with you, If it is a bright spark severing you, he will not need to ask the front axle number as he can access that information himself.

Regards,

Re: drag link?

Sorry to contradict the real expert but the near side of the drag link is available separately, I did it and it was about £85. It's only if the joint under the steering arm is loose that you have to replace the whole thing.

The rubber boots are available but difficult to find - however I have 4 spare ones that I will send you.

Re: drag link?

Stand corrected,
Thank you gentlemen, I am sure when I used to go, to my dealer, a few years ago, they were adamant that the drag link could only be bought as a whole, despite that fact that the n/side ball joint was shown as, an available item (I know that because, I have the old micro-fische).
But, as ever changing M/benz are, it could be feesable for the ball joint to be available seperately, again. Sorry, Jonnyboy.

Rakesh, I had the same experience - stood my ground and they finally agreed to get just the end.

Re: drag link?

huge sigh on this now with bloomin MB...

have the drag link ns balljoint in the garage as had no time to do job (on my '88 swb).

put the LWB (1989) in for pre-sale MOT and it failed on. guess what, the damned nside draglink balljoint. had asked my local indi just to sort it due to lack of time so i took him in the balljoint i had in the garage allocated for the swb ;)

disaster.

he has it stripped in his car park (blocking 3 cars in) as they are very busy. had to damage old balljoint to get it off. newly supplied balljoint is externally threaded same as the old one but the thread is handed opposite :(

had a, lets call it a, disagreement with MB as they insist theyre not (thread) handed, despite the fact that i am on the phone to them with both old and replacement joints in my hand :(

they now need to speak to germany, in the meantime the bloody car is stranded blocking others in, and of course lets remember that to all intents and purposes it was me who supplied the indi with parts for the job

the draglink attaches to the pitman arm with a permanently fitted balljoint at the steering box end, but an adjustable balljoint at the ns end which attaches to the drag link via a male=female adapter end piece (with two pinch clamps)

ive done several searches on the forum regarding balljoints etc and transit ones look a possible but my factor cannot trace

anyone gor experience here?

Re: drag link?

interesting - I just failed my MOT for the right side drag link having excessive play too - though I couldn't detect any.

anyhow when I went to MB to order the part he nearly sold me the tie rod end...

he even looked under my G twice and insisted the drag link was the tie rod until I pointed to the fact that it was attached to the steering box.... supposedly on a sedan they are reversed? tie rod in front and draglink behind?

anyhow i will let you know how i get on next week as i will get it fitted then. unfortunately we have different Gs or we could compare numbers....

Re: drag link?

Aha Maxwell, maybe we should compare notes lol (is it you who is also in touch with James Lafferty?).

I need part no 53 for mine, I was supplied part no A0003308535 which has the wrong handed thread for the tie bar adjustable insert on my car. I was then supplied a4603301235 which is the wrong diameter :(

The dealer has tried "linking" the part request via MB technical with the tierod which is on the car, part no A4634600105, their response is that the original balljoint 8535 is the correct one (they dont listen to "it doesnt bloody fit.....", and the ultimate answer seems to be "you'll have to buy a complete drag link sir.."

Not happy at all here, car off road MOT retest time running out, need car bloody sold as could do with the ££

By the way, all, the transit joints that fit the G are for the tie-rod not the drag link.....

Anyone else had this problem?

No not me that is speaking to James. I don't have the part no. to hand but I think I have the second part you mention.... off to MB in 15 mins to try my luck again.

EDIT - yes have just checked the incorrect part and it is the same as your incorrect part a4603301235

Re: drag link?

Sharing my experience on this annoying MoT failure source, it was listed last year as a cause of failure (Front "from steering box" drag link end ball joint has excessive play[2.2.B.1f]).
I bit the bullet and got the whole draglink, part number A4634600205 (for a RHD car), list £163.30.
The mechanic claimed it took him 4 hours to get the old one off, after trying hammers, heat and fire. I just grinned...I don't think he had the right tool.

What a bunch of f%cking useless stupid idiots!!!!!!!!

Part you were supplied initially (A0003308535) is # 26 in the graphic (obviously for a LHD car, which doesn't seem your case).

The part with the wrong diameter (A4603301235) is # 23 in the graphic (again for a LHD car).

(see for yourself in this link: http://www.detali.ru/cat/oem_mb2.asp?TP=2&F=463327&A=463533&M=603931&GM=... This is for a LHD W463, but it should no be that different).

The part that you need, # 53, is A0004607348, defined as DRAG LINK END L.H. THREAD TO 463 460 01 05, as you can confirm in this link:

http://www.detali.ru/cat/oem_mb2.asp?TP=2&F=463227&A=463538&M=103987&GA=...

(this is for a RHD W463 but I don't think it would change much).

If you want to confirm the exact parts required fror your G, enter your VIN here: http://www.detali.ru/cat/oem_mb.asp and click OK.

But I am pretty sure that the part you need is A0004607348.

Good luck

Re: drag link?

In addition to all above, make sure that your tie rod is actually A4634600105.

In any event, I can investigate further if you give me the VIN of your G.

Re: drag link?

Mort - I think the EPC parts are wrong as I was just supplied the "right" part for my LHD according to the EPC but the thread direction was wrong.

Jonnyboy was also supplied the right part for his RHD but the thread direction was also wrong.

We are just trying to confirm now but it appears his part might fit mine and vice versa.

Well if the EPC is wrong, there is nothing we can do except perhaps you both swapping your parts and giving it a try.

hi guys, popped into the office for a sec, my parts guy is speaking to Max's parts guy as we speak, my VIN is wdb46023327063864, looks like part no 7348 is correct for me, my draglink is a4634600105

Re: drag link?

ok for what its worth - Mark and I just spent a good few minutes under his G.

And the EPC is definitely wrong at least when it comes to 2000 G300 TDs. His drag link ends are the same as mine in regards to RH/LH threads.

Will find out tomorrow what the correct part number is as MB just ordered in a variety of possible ends for me to try and match...

Re: drag link?

Right.. will note Transit as track rod end only...but from somewhere I have this;

.. if you have a LHD German Fleabay had made up drag links that Morty says will not work on RHD;

Made up drag link for steering for £100 delivered with new ends maybe only for LHD;
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Mercedes-G-Modell-460-und-463-Spurstange-NEUWARE_W...

www.speed-autoteile.com do TRACK ROD ends for 24.8Euros each. You need left hand and right hand ends - threads are different. These parts are also used on Fords. The Ford part numbers are as follows:
LH 5 021 447, 6 163 544 or 6 792 901. (3 numbers for the same item)
RH 5 021 446, 6 163 543 or 6 792 900.
These are the same as MB nos 000 460 73 48 LH and 000 460 72 48 RH.

Re: drag link?

000 460 72 48 is a drag link end (rh thread)- not a tierod end.
000 460 73 48 is the lh thread drag link end.

For anyone replacing the drag link ends where you require the above part numbers for a LHD, the EPC has them backwards - at least from the Gs that I have looked at.

Re: drag link?

Oh boy wish I had spotted this sooner.

I too am after part number 53 in the parts diagram over page for my 84 RHD 300GD, so far not had much luck with MB main dealers, the last effort had a smaller diameter threaded part M20 and RH thread instead of LH M22 as on the part removed.

I am at the stage were my dealer seems lost, I am also a few quid lighter!

Is it worth visiting someone like Partco and get them to trot out there transit ones for comparison?

Can someone confirm the actual MB part number I need? maybe then I can persuade the Main Dealer to have another go!

Never worked on a car where main dealer support is so poor, this is a first for me.

Thanks

Re: drag link?

Well the dealer should sort it as it is the EPC that is wrong. I didn't have to pay for any of the wrongly ordered parts as I wasn't at fault. MB even has a sign on the wall mentioning this.

There are a number of part numbers that might fit. I would go in with the part numbers mentioned and possibly work from there.

But if you are positive that you managed to get the correct part but wrongly threaded then they can actually find the part from that. The correct part will have the same part number but for one digit change either up or down. In my case it was the 8th number.

Re: drag link?

I got what I believe is an M20 Righthand threaded part, when I need an M22 Lefthand threaded part.

You guys seem to have built up a relationship with your dealer, mines very much in the "thats the right part sir" "someone must have fitted wrong parts to your car in the past if it does not fit"!

So really looking at other options, going in with a list of part numbers will probably not get me that far, I may have been able to convince them to order another part if I give them a specific number.

I can't imagine what they would say if I mentioned the EPC is wrong....I don't think they would be able to cope with that sort of information.

Its all come as a bit of shock for me, normally German stuff is easy, all based on the chassis number etc, I have ordered much older stuff for Porsches from main dealers no problem.

I am getting some stick for this as I spent 10 years on the tools in main dealers, most think its quite comical that a track rod end seems to be causing me so much grief, suggestions include tigging the M20 one in, need I say more...

The Joy continues

Joe

Re: drag link?

Tell them to check with head office.... and mention that it is a common issue. You could also try taking into a MB Commercial Dealer (Van's and Trucks) instead.

Also maybe check your draglink itself as if it has a part number on it then it can be matched up.

Re: drag link?

I can confirm that the transit tie rod end part numbers mentioned earlier in this thread are actually the smaller M20 threaded tie rod end.

Did try a Commercial MB dealer but no joy, the G Wagen is a car according to them, I got that in writing as well as I emailed them to get conformation.

I will have a look at the draglink for part numbers, I checked the tie bar on the drag link for numbers but couldnt see anything. the Tie rod end itself has no numbers on it? Will this really help? or will I then need the steering box number? then the column? then the steering wheel?

Still managing to laugh about it, just

Hi Joe, I have a 1989 460 with a 22mm lefthand threaded drag link end.
VIN WDB46023827057711.

It's possible your drag link was replaced with the latter, stronger link at some time. My 86 has the lighter rod.
Hope this helps

Re: drag link?

Maybe somethings been changed. but it seems a very standard basic vehicle, no upgrades that I can tell.

I keep going back to the parts drawings posted earlier on this thread and mine looks identical to the layout shown in the RHD version, part 53 I am after, M22 LH Thread. But all I get from my chassis number with MB is a M20 threaded item same as the transit equivelent.

I will just keep collecting them sooner or later I have got to strike lucky...

Re: drag link?

I don't understand why it is so complicated.

If you have the M22 LH thread then your MB parts department can search for the same piece but under description put a query in for a RH thread.

And then compare part numbers to confirm as the LH/RH thread parts are only one digit off.

As far as I can tell the EPC is backwards in regards to the tie-rod ends.

What is your VIN?

Re: drag link?

I have had a good look at the Drag Link part 44 in the diagram, I found an area where a rectangular sticker had lived but no part number stamped on it anywhere. It does look the same age as the rest of the bits under there but who knows.

One slight difference in mine and the diagram although its hard to make out is I have 2 clamps at the rod end, and what looks like a small reducer about 2 inches long which goes into the main drag link tube.

On the rod end itself there is a triangle and benz symbol in the centre of the circle on the back of the the casing opposite the ball pin but thats all.

I am speaking to some European suppliers re this now, I would give the alternative chassis number a punt, but I must admit I have lost a bit of confidence in using the main dealer now.

Mine has no locknuts it just has the clamps on the end the drag link and the spacer piece. But at least it confirms an M22 exists, which is progress.

I have just been told the M22 tie rod was only fitted to the Hanomag? whatever that is..

Re: drag link?

The different tie rods might also have to do with the axle width. On the 463s there were a few different tie rods to match vehicle with no arches, narrow arches and wide arches.

It probably took an hour or more to get my tie rod end off. And I know he wasn't messing me as I was watching. It was seized very tight. They ended up needing to use a torch to heat the metal but only after stripping the threads on the old tie rod end.

Joe - Incidentally I had a quick look at the EPC and there are multiple tie rods available for your G. But which end will depend on your tie rod!

Re: drag link?

Well finally managed to sort this through an old mate who works at a dealership, he just ordered me a collection of them and I picked the one that was right.

He explained there is a directive to sell the whole draglink to avoid these issues, apprantly there are 3 draglinks they all fit, but from the moment you have that fitted replacing just the drag link end becomes interesting.

Re: drag link?

Am having problems getting the correct part 53 for my RHD 460. First one was LH thread next was RH thread but 20mm. Which if either of these will get me a 22mm RH thread. 0004607248 or
0004607348. OR is it another number ?

I can confirm 00 460 7348 is an M22 Lefthand thread I had to find someone who would order it regardless of reg and chassis number.
