Hi all.

It has happened!....After a long stint of Vauxhall ownership, poor built, bad back ache due to awful seats, and stupid 'specialist' garages, AND my wife waxing lyrical of her 190e which she loves, I bought a Mercedes myself.

I borrowed her 190e, and to be honest, after using it for a few days I was sold......

I am now the proud owner of a 1994 E300 diesel (wouldve been a 190, but wanted something a little larger). Smooth comfort, and an auto box which is so silky smooth compared to the dreaded GM efforts.

So, my question is; I need to replace the serpentine Drive belt. It's the 3.0 litre diesel with aircon pulley to go around too....

Anyone know the part number for the belt?
Is it the 2130mm long belt I should be going for?
Or, longer?

any help gratefully accepted :)

Thanks Swells. Thats excellent. and thanks for the diagram too. Great for reference as it'll be the first time tackling the routing of this belt.

Thanks again.
I got a new belt and fitted today.
I can honestly say, it wasn't as fiddly as I was expecting it to be. It was actually a pleasure to work with 'proper' hex nuts and bolts, and nicely made brackets, rather than the torx heads and flimsy excuses for build quality I'd been use to on the FIATs and Vauxhalls
