What Sets Us Apart: Upgraded Metal Hinge

The Problem: The variable intake manifold on certain Mercedes-Benzes is made out of plastic. When it breaks, it can lead to a stuck intake manifold flap and a P2006 trouble code.

Our Response: Saving you money on a full replacement, TechSmart’s Variable Intake Manifold Actuator Repair Kit comes with everything you need to replace the failed part instead of the entire assembly, including:

  • Metal hinge
  • Spacer
  • Intake manifold gaskets

 The hinge’s upgraded metal design protects against intake linkage failures. The kit covers more than 1 million VIO.
