I would like to retrofit a Mercedes-Benz 308D van from year 1992 (model number 602.316) with cruise control.

What parts would I need to buy and how to proceed installing them?

I mostly see parts for sale for passenger models, for example W115, W123 - would these be compatible?

BTW, could someone with enough reputation add these tags: mercedes tempomat mercedes-benz cruise-control –  miernik Mar 31 '11 at 14:53

someone's already gotten to the tags for you, but with tempomat since it appears to be the German work for cruise-control I created a tag synonym and so whenever tempomat is used, it will be tied to cruise-control –  Patrick Apr 1 '11 at 21:10
    
@Patrick if you are at it, mercedes tag as a synonym for mercedes-benz might be useful - in case someone searches for tag mercedes alone, or just to prevent it being added as a standalone tag. –  miernik Apr 1 '11 at 22:12
    
@Troggy why did you change the "mercedes-benz" tag to "mercedes" which is a synonym, but now this question is not visible under tag mercedes-benz Can you change the tag back to mercedes-benz? –  miernik Apr 2 '11 at 13:36
    
@Patrick you created the synonym, but now "mercedes-benz" is gone from the list of valid tags, so can you add it back? –  miernik Apr 2 '11 at 13:56

Not sure if this helps, but for BMW Z3s they made a kit that allowed for you to just basically plug it in. I installed one once, and remember the kit costing like a couple of hundred bucks. I recommend going to dealership, get estimate, and then see if it has a part number you can cross reference for the kit to see if there are cheaper options online, or just buy the dealers kit.
