Exhaust hangers


What is your opinion about the rubber exhaust hangers with chains embedded inside of them?  Do you use those or just the "normal" MB rubber hangers that break only too frequently?

Funny you should mention that...

Right now my cars exhaust has a few hangers that have stretched and cracking. One of them is completely missing.

I ordered a set for the center resonators, but important to remember the ones for the muffler out back are different.

I have never seen the ones with metal wire inside of them. It might prove to be a good safety measure but every since I tried using some aftermarket hangers I decided only genuine MB for me from now on. Mercedes seems to know how to make good rubber.

I know this statement is wasted on you, but "Try parts.com" LOL

I also think there is a difference between the SL hangers and the Coupe/Sedan, but dont quote me on that.

I'd be interested in seeing the ones with the metal wire if you got some photos.

Yes there are differences between the 126 coupe and the SLs as far as hangers go. I replaced oval MB rubber hangers on my E500 today with MB hangers from an R107 with little chains installed. It was a customization but I kept MB parts. Yes those (what you show) are typical hangers that you see on 126s (which I used when I did my coupe top-end rebuild last year -- I replaced all hangers under the car).

These chain-reinforced hangers are part number 107 492 00 44 and they replace the straight oval rubber jobs. They are more difficult to install but the added safety margin is a good thing.

I did a lot of Benz work today:

- Replaced and then adjusted neutral safety switch
- Replaced two rubber hangers on the E500
- Retrofitted two new door switches on the E500 with newer 202 design that allows you to turn off the switch by pulling on the plunger
- Replaced 124 wagon (wife's car) steering wheel with one I brought home from Belgium in July (had to retrofit horn assembly & steering wheel guts)
