What is a Mercedes-Benz Re manufactured Part?
Re-manufacturing of automotive parts begins with an inoperative, failed or worn out part called a "core". This core is disassembled so that the subsystems and components can be cleaned, tested, repaired/reworked or replaced. The components are then brought back to production specification, reassembled, and tested such that the expected performance of the reassembled equipment can be defined and warranted.
Mercedes-Benz Genuine Re-manufactured are specifically designed for a precise fit for the vehicle
They are less expensive than new parts to provide a lower cost of ownership to the owner.
Differentiating "Re-manufactured" from the rest?
Repaired: usually refers to a part that is simply made operational again
Recycled: typically refers to a salvage/used part
Restored/Reconditioned: refers to older parts, typically parts that are "freshened"
Rebuilt: refers to a simple replacement of only those components that may be broken or unusable, without a complete dis-assembly and inspection.
