baffle plate
« on: 27 January 2016, 04:47 AM »
Seems my car is missing the baffle plate 1168880238, do any of you with 6.9's have this on you car still? Research revealed that it was only used on 6.9's?

I noticed this looking at the car on BAT with this picture. it's the black part below the silver one.

The drawing in EPC doesnt look anything like that though.  #724

As it sticks down so far under the car, I imagine that most have been destroyed by parking blocks.

Anyone have an extra?

Rumb, that part is unique to the 6.9 as you suspect.  Though, you're looking the wrong place on EPC or looking under the wrong chassis.  Go under group 88, Frame number 1.  You'll see it.  If you're looking at a U.S. 6.9. it'll be call out number 84.  If you're looking at a European 6.9, then the call out will be number 148.

 The part number is 116-884-00-48.  It's still available for around $120.

that pn 116-884-00-48  is the metal filler on top of the bumper. Not the part I am mentioning.

This epc pict is used, I just grabbed from the web, I was too lazy to do a screen print of my own.

actually on grp 88 panel 3, #724 for 6.9 euro. the picture in EPC doesnt look much like the item in the photo.

I checked with the Classic Centre that part is officially NLA :'( I guess they ran out as this part is easily damaged.

when last I did a search, a year ago, I found there were still some left in Greece as well.
Some MB dealer there, but emails dried up somehow, and I forgot to keep pushing.

Anyways, about these sump plates, bash plates. I have been looking at the data for quite some time, and do I understand it right that all W116 have 2 such plates available? 1 under the engine, and 1 under the radiator?

For 6.9, it would be 1168880238 in the front, and  11688400448 underneath
For all other W116, it would be 1168880238 in the front, and 11688400048 underneath.

Is this conclusion correct?

On the 6.9 the bash guard sits at the bottom  RHS to protect the dry sump hoses from getting damaged.
The plastic baffle that sits below the bottom valance I believe is not 6.9 specific. Just at the right level to get wiped out by curbs and such :o

There are several plates :

bash plate under sump (heavy steel) : for all non-6.9 models - seems fitment was market dependent
bash plate under sump (heavy steel) : modified version for 6.9's only

bash plate under radiator (thin steel (stainless??)) : can be fitted in conjunction with the main bash plate, or on its own.  Not sure if it can fit on a 6.9 - appears to be a fairly rare option, part of the 'africa package' spec.  I've only got one car with this.

protection plate for dry sump hoses : only for 6.9's, and appears to be standard on 6.9's

Plastic chin spoiler as per the first photo in this thread - very definately only a 6.9 item, and was originally standard on them, but they are often missing due to damage.  I imagine they would also fit onto non-6.9 models.

Here's a twist.  The russian baffle plates may be reproductions.

would any of you be interested if they were?

Still trying to get detailed photos.

This plate was fitted only on 1973/74 regular 450 SE/SEL (and maybe a few 1975 450 4.5).

I would be interested in all forms of supply for these plates, Russians included.

S-Class, can you please list the number you got, connected to the different plates you describe? I listed several before. I would like to compare them.

Is it an automatic or a manual transmission ?
