It's being identical that generates the difference
Mercedes-Benz ReMan GenuineParts are identical alternatives to the latest new Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts, but provide cost savings of up to 50%.
Sometimes known as 'service-exchange' parts, but not to be confused with 'reconditioned', 'repaired' or 'recycled' parts, Mercedes-Benz only offer fully-remanufactured parts. Have a look below to understand Mercedes-Benz ReMan GenuineParts differ from other types of 'service-exchange' parts.
Mercedes-Benz ReMan GenuineParts
All Mercedes-Benz ReMan GenuineParts are fully disassembled, checked and components replaced to bring them back to the exact same standards as Mercedes-Benz new GenuineParts. ReMan GenuineParts ensures a great fit, first time, every time and perform at their best with other Mercedes-Benz components. This therefore guarantees the same high level performance as a New GenuinePart, every time.
The process of reconditioning will sometimes include rust removal and replacement of failed components. However, these parts do not normally include full disassembly testing or replacement of wearing items. The parts being replaced are inconsistent, and only quick functional tests are performed. The longevity of these parts therefore cannot be guaranteed.
This usually refers to a worn part which has been made operational again by only replacing the failed component part when necessary. Other components are not inspected or tested therefore reliability and durability of the part cannot be determined.
Typically previously used or salvage parts that are still in an acceptable condition for use but there is no guarantee on how well they will work or for how long.
