W108 280se 2.8L Bosch ignition coil replacement

Post by hodgenst23 » Thu 27 Apr, 2017 12:08 pm

Hey everyone. I've decided to replace my ignition coil and I'm unable to find the exact Bosch part number for an ignition coil to match. My original coil number is 0 221 102 036. I'm just wondering if anyone else has replaced their and what was their part number? I've been told it's 0221122001 but when I research it, it always comes up as compatible for 280sel and I'm not sure if that's for the 2.8 or 3.5.
Cheers

They may well be the same. You could try say 250se or even 280sl because i would think they are the same coil and you won't get confusion between engines. And as a site that will pop up part numbers based on model, try Autohaus.az - there will be others but I sometimes use that site to flick between different models to see what are common parts.

This is an excellent moment to upgrade to an electronic ignition with the fitting Beru coil:

I installed it on my finnie, and never looked back..

Cheers CraigB I'll have a look for 250se and 280sl coils. And Baran4800 that was my next step. But I'm going to get my dizzy rebuilt with electronic ignition. But wouldn't mind one of those, just a tad out of my price range.

I might go with this one unless you goes think otherwise.

That looks ok but given price including postage I would check with the forum sponsor MB Spares. That way you know you are going to get the right one. One problem with OS parts is that if they end up putting the wrong one in the box, because they are just warehouses of people dealing with numbers, then there are all the issues of freight. It its going to cost you multiples of the local price then sometimes it is worth the risk, but I would be surprised if it was that much difference. But i haven't bought a coil for a long time but a bosch coil from supercheap is about $45 - even for the volumes they work in getting the right one from JG may not be that much more, but he will sell you the correct part regardless.... then job done!

I just emailed MB Spares so hopefully I get a great response. That's my concern too about OS parts. However supercheap offered me the same part matching part number for $140. Sorry but who is JG? MB Spares?
Cheers for the help. Much appreciated

Their freecall number might get a faster response. Yes JG = John Green = MB spares - apologies for the cryptic codes! I don't know if there is something particularly special about our coils but I thought on the old stuff there were basically resistor or non-resistor coils - either at supercheap was $45...... maybe they have a special $100 mark up if you enter a mercedes part number! Or maybe i know too little and there is something special about our coils.
