DIN Numbers

Does anyone know if there is a way to translate the MB "N" part numbers to DIN?

I.E. N007987008119 is a screw for a 250SE.

Thanks,

Paul

Ask Dave Gallon. He might know. He is in the vendor sources.

 For N type MB part numbers the DIN # is found in the first six digits omitting leading zeroes.
So the  MB part number N007987008119 is a DIN 7987 screw. That DIN number now is replaced by a DIN 965 screw which is  a flat head countersunk machine screw. Not always clear to me how to read the diameter and length from the last digits , but I am sure someone can explain that.

Mercedes has issued some useful DIN catalogs showing the different types of screws, fasteners etc. that correspond to the various DIN numbers.

That is very interesting.  I had always wondered why there are "N" part numbers and "A" part numbers.   Thanks for teaching me something new!

For seal rings, the 7-9 digits for a "N" number is the ID of the seal ring. So I would assume the 7-9 digits with a "N" number is the bolt diameter. In Han's example, the 7-9 digits are 008 or 8mm. Makes sense. The length I don't know about.
