OK, I finally got photos of the offending piece. They took the photos for me and sent them to me. It looks like it's the end of part number

Got my car back w/ the exhaust completely unattached. Luckily I found an old school muffler shop that welded it back together for me.

I also noticed on the paperwork for the SBC replacement, it said that the reservoir was actually at fault but that the part was "no longer available" so they replaced the entire unit. I looked at the unit and it's definitely an updated piece. The reservoir on the back isn't the dome looking piece the old one had.

That clamp is rusted to ****, no wonder they want to replace it.

Have you, not a service guy, checked with their parts department to see if that clamp is available separately?

They don't sell that bracket as a replacement part. It's part of the muffler itself. I ended up just welding it together.

My '05 E320 is at the dealer right now for the SBC warranty work, however they said the system checks out fine and are not replacing it at this time. This is frustrating because I've experienced ~5 failures of the system while driving. The dash goes red and brake power is severely compromised. I pull over, restart, and everything is back to normal with no error messages. Needless to say, the system does not give me confidence. Anybody have recommendations as to what I could possibly do to get MB to replace the system when the problem is intermittent?

btw, my vehicle has ~180k miles and the last time I checked STAR, my SBC system has around 900k actuations clocked. Dealer also notified me that my brake fluid is very old and needs flushing. I will be doing this job this week. Can old brake fluid cause SBC failure?

Thanks all,
Daniel

One more time- don't drink coffee when reading internet.
Now I have keyboard to clean
I hope you at least changed the engine oil on those 180k miles?

The car is relatively new to me, but yes, I have been changing it every 10k. I assumed the PO was on top of the brake fluid service, but I was wrong. I'm replacing the brake fluid tomorrow
