Last week we received the Vin number and I was able to get a lot of details on Mercedes options for our Sprinter.

Here's the website I used:
Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz WDDHF7EBXEA947042 | CARInfo

Go about 3/4 down the page and enter you Vin number and make sure English is selected where it says: Check the VIN Mercedes-Benz
Suggest you edit the link incase that VIN number has significance.

Here's the link without the other person's VIN number already entered: Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz | CARInfo There's a limit of three checks per day and if you go to the site with the VIN already entered, it counts (drat, going to have to wait until tomorrow to see what my data entry sheet looks like).

Thanks CharSolera for the new link. The site is a challenge to use with the IP limitations per day as you loose the ability to search.

Once you have the data you can match up every code number and find details on options using the 2016 sprinter equipment handbook.

Has anyone disconnected the neg. battery lead next to the accelerator? Does it pull straight off after releasing the red clip?

My 2016 on a 2015 chassis is registered as a 2016 Sunseeker MBS on the title, registration, and insurance.
All manufacturers generate a "Certificate of Origin" for every vehicle produced. This document will state the model year of the finished/completed RV and is used by the purchasers State DOT to generate the vehicle title.

YES, pulls straight up. Press the red clip when reattaching and you'll hear a click when it's properly back in place.Easy task!

Thanks RSchleder. The manual is not very clear and I don't like to try and force something when I am not sure of the outcome.

Thanks again.

Downloaded the manual?? You should have received a full set of manuals with the vehicle. See attached photo. The manuals should have included Operating Instructions, Maintenance Booklet, Fuse Allocation Supplement (priceless, literally 17 pp. of informative about all the fuses!), Service and Warranty Information, and Sprinter Incomplete Vehicle Document Cab Chassis F28 or FW1. If you didn't get them, go back and insist on them.
