    E420 Eta and or S500 Eta

    Hey guys I have two etas and one of them the date is almost illegible I want to use one but not sure which one is the newer one. Also from what I have read the 1995 S500 eta will work only difference is the legnth in the cable ? I have side by sides of the connectors from a 94 e420.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    They both will work only difference if length of wire
    you can tell these are asr versions since the label is white not green
    test on car before installing

    Hey guys I did Ertech's test and am posting two videos of the two etas I have. If anyone can chime in if the way they open and close is normal. One sounds like it is not normal.

    They look ok visually in the test, but is one making a weird grinding noise as the butterfly moves?

    Yes one of them makes a louder grinding noise
    The other makes a slight noise too but no where near that loud

    I'd use the quieter one. If your PCV hoses aren't recent, buy new ones; if they are old/fossilized you'll likely break one taking them apart to R&R the ETA.
