Reversing not possible, Engine Failure , Air solenoid

HI All. GLA 200 Diesel 2014

I have had the same symptom Reversing not possible and loosing power. RPMs are floating at 80 km/h dropping to 800 and then to 3000
Software update for transmission didn't fix the problem.
I am in Australia, Brisbane.

Second time dealership found the solenoid - stiffed with carbon. Poor fuel? strange.
Engine solenoid - air intake.
Very strange.

Car has got 72000 kms and always filled up with quality Diesel at BP premium stuff.

They quoted 3600 AUD dollars for the repair.
I have agreed but not happy not sure why so expensive.
The parts will come next Tuesday so I have time to think about it.

Are they going to pull apart all engine that's why the cost?

Any experience much appreciated !
should have probably asked the Part number I bet it can be ordered at Half price.

But engine job - can not be trusted to be done by unauthorised repairer?

For those who are interested the Part number is A6510900037
INTAKE MANIFOLD.

Guys at the Spare parts department had no idea how Intake Manifold could have failed due to Carbon contamination.
I am not sure either, Mercedes still in the process of making a decision to charge me or cover under warranty or partially at least spare part or labour.

We will see.
I have been servicing the car only at that dealer but I am the second owner of the car.

In any case I would probably keep the wring part and try to make an official complaint as per Australian consumer laws, extended warranty for critical parts.
