Check what's inside
The blue Mercedes-Benz original parts boxes contain bearings from a number of different bearing manufacturers like FAG or Timken.
If you have a choice - get the FAG bearings. They last longer and fail less often. Timken bearings vary in quality depending which of the many factories worldwide produced them - Timken France bearings are the worst.
Check what's inside the box while you are at the MB dealer. Refuse when they have Timken France bearings inside - give the guy a tip if the box contains FAG.

A separate workshop manual for axle services is available.
 More part numbers can be found on the part number CD.
