The CLK550 needs "magnets"

So MB calls solenoids, “magnets”, and the ones on my passenger side for the intake/exhaust cams are faulty; throwing a code (P0012). So, I looked up how much $$$ this would cost, and to my surprise, they are only ~$25 each, online at least. Gonna call the dealer tomorrow to see if they’re in stock and not stupidly overpriced.

The sensors/magnets in question

Already got these to help remove the old sensors/magnets too since Torx heads are graciously used on the bolts.


Seems simple to change myself as well. Few bolts here and there, slap on some new o-rings, call it a day.

My CLK for your time.
