For engines manufactured from April 2006 through end of production in August 2006, you must use a different woodruff key. See both versions pictured below
Retainer bolt in center of front crankshaft pulley/vibration damper. This used on all 2002, 2003, 2004, 2205 and early 2006 models.

Replaced by ribbed pulley, which is slightly larger in diameter.
Some owners may feel more comfortable with the smooth pulley however, either the ribbed pulley or the smooth one will perform properly.
Ribbed pulleys, will typically interface with the ribbed side of the belt.
Smooth pulleys are designed to interface with the back or non-ribbed side of the belt.
The roller/pulley is NOT available as a separate unit.
These units are manufactured by Litens, the original factory supplier to Mercedes Benz, and this unit is the identical tensioner sold at a Dodge or Freightliner dealer. Many other brands have been known to break off at the pivot arm, due to a poor design.
