Are you there
Expert:  CarDoc replied 12 days ago.

What is the part number? There are modules available in UK but the part numbers need to match and then the module needs to be coded/programmed to the car at a mercedes dealership or independant specialist.

There are some available on ebay, click on this LINK. There is also a repair service on ebay, which may be the better option because the cheapest price is £450 for a used module and you have to send them your faulty module too.
