    Can anyone confirm that I have the wrong Ignition Coils for my car, 1994 C 180 W202
    I think those pictured are for the later cars that have the coils mounted in the plug compartment on 2 of the plugs.

    Yes, the ones pictured as listed for 09/1995 - 04/2000.

    0 221 505 437 are listed for your car. Both HT terminals point the same way.

    Just as I suspected, many thanks for going to the trouble to dig up the correct info.

    The probably do, the difference is in the design, I think this is the one I needed here.
    The car was running very badly recently so I decided to change the plugs and leads and do the coils while I was at it but the sent me the wrong oils.

    The car is going like a rocket again so the existing coils are ok, will just get a refund and not bother changing them now.
