I agree with your solution. We both know if it doesn't work, nothing is lost. I like to think the least expensive solution is the BEST. If that solution didn't work, it either didn't cost much, or it cost nothing. OMG, this philosophy ribs wrong with a lot of people who have too much money and not a lot of time to solve their problem with their own situation?


I'm a FIRM believer in 'trust but verify'. Especially when someone else wants to spend my $'s under the guise of 'advice'. Before I spend, I want to know I did all I could with my limited resources, to make sure every $ counts.

funny thing, looked up parts in autozone:

under 2005 chrysler crossfire srt-6 it shows part number su6904 for $300
under 2003 mercedes slk32 amg it shows part number 0061532728 for $100
oem mercedes part number 2759050000 (updated part from 0061532728) is $100 wholesale $125 retail.

pics look the same, any reason why these two cars would have different parts for this?

They are most likely the same part, but you pay Chrysler for going to the Mercedes dealer, picking up the part and putting a Chrysler label with the Chrysler part number on it over the top of the Mercedes label. That has got to be worth $200 or why bother to get out of bed.
You probably would get the updated part as well instead of the obsolete part.
Look at your oil pump the Mercedes number is on it somewhere.

Seems the same part number is on ALL crossfire year/models including the SRT-6 AMG motors (oil level sensor).
