Mine failed twice before I replaced it with an aluminum after market turbo resonator. No problems since. Aluminum rules just one more time.

Enjoy the ride,

Dave

Just to be sure I understand. This turbo resonator issue applies to which era sprinters and which engines?

Definitely the 5-cylinder models, and I think any model year. I haven't heard of a six-cylinder having resonator problems (yet).

Nope, Our neighbors who bought a 2014.5 had their turbo resonator go out @ approx 10,000 miles and had to limp about 60 miles home.

The earlier 2.7L 5-cylinder was the engine pre-2006 that had all of the turbo resonator problems. the 3.0L 6-cylinder does not use the same arrangement, hence no 'goat bag' resonator. I have 103,000 miles on my 2011 Sprinter and have not had any turbo problem........yet!

Perhaps the new 4 cylinder base engine that Mercedes is now supplying with their 7-speed auto tranny has a new resonator that they are once again having problems with, but I am not familiar with that engine arrangement.

Here's the skinny http://europarts-sd.com/custompages/FAQS-for-SRE06.pdf
You can order the aluminum replacement from:

Europarts of San Diego
Sprinter Store
and probably others

I never had a failure, but replaced my original in my '05 Sprinter with the Riordan aluminum replacement as a preventative item, and never had a problem.

V6 engined Sprinters can have a problem with the charge hose seal - both of the guys above carry a replacement aftermarket piece for that, as well.

It seems they have never publicly acknowledged what they know and have addressed privately for 7-8 years.

Very tacky behavior, in my opinion. Shame on them.

Seems the resonators only split under heavy loads. So if there are still some five cyl out they, they must have been babied or very low mileage. The first ones were replaced with identical oe ones until the dealers got smart and ordered the newer ones. Best bet is still the aluminum ones, fix ir right and forget it. Jim

I think we are 5 cylinder, and....delightedly....have not been low mileage.

Sounds like we found an ethical dealer in Knoxville, TN. Kudos to them.

Don't they know people talk?

I'd like to think that all people...and entities, you know who you are...without functioning moral compasses, will reap what they have sown at some point.

I'm going to shut up on this now, as I feel a small rant coming on.
