Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
If the flap is broken and there is no rebuild kit for the intake on this model here from the dealer then unfortunately the intake manifold needs replaced to correct this here.It can be an expensive repair but in some cases you might be able to find one used and have a repair facility replace it for you for maybe less then half the cost the dealer wants.I know some could be repaired but most had to be replaced as it can be internal pieces in the intake that break and the only repair is replacement.
One place I use quite a bit for used parts is http://www.car-part.com.You might see if they have a used intake but first see if you can find a facility that will install it for you.
