  1. Hi. I have 92 190E. My differential ratio 2.85 and its not even in this list. Would it be previous owner changed it with something else?

    1. What type of 190E?
      a regular four cylinder? then i would guess someone has swapped for another differential earlier on.

      i had never heard of a 2.85 differential, but 2.87, are you shure thats the number thats stamped at the rear of it?
      If so, according to this post on benzworld http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w201-190-class/1616271-e300-have-same-rear-end-2-a.html
      the w201 2.6 allegedly had a 2.85 differential the last year, but the discussion seems to have ended without much more info.

  2. My 1993 190e 2.3 has a 2.85 diff- that’s the correct ratio and was used apparently in 1992 and 1993 on the four cylinder automatics. That chart is wrong.

    1. good info, il try and update.
      i have never heard of that ratio on that engine before. you are certain its not swapped?
