Do you have a Mercedes dealer?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
l will ring them to day and get back to you
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 7 months ago.

A dealer would be the only source for a new (most likely factory remanufactured) module. Other than that the options will be used or from an aftermarket company which repairs modules, which will often come with problems.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have found some in Europe refurbished I will pursue that option thank you for your time and effort
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 7 months ago.

Great!
