    Dear sirs,
    I just bought a E 350, 2007 with only 80K, MBenz in Chile is saying that the system is not working properly, so will be necessary to replace it. I was reading many other people experiences in other countries and their repair was done without charge.
    Is this a common failure? Are there any call from MBenz to repair it FOC.

    Please give me your comments.

    There are different rules on the SBC pump in all the countries,, some cover it for 10 years, some countries are unspecified. If you have just bought it it should be covered in the cars warranty

    I think the change was actually 30-06-2006 some countries use a different year system to ours, and a car can always get sold well after the run out date.

    No SBC brakes on the 211 350 after 30-06-06
