I missed the option of having the intermediate door stop on the slider door when I ordered 2008 . It can be retrofitted. Labor cost at dealership was $115.50. Door now has second stop point that gives a 32" door opening.
Parts required:

906-760-03-29 Stop $51.77
906-695-03-30-7J69 Covering $32.73
906-766-05-37 Rail $65.45

Dave:

What is the "Covering"? Can you post a picture?

Also, when I did mine, I saved the cost of replacing the existing rail and the hassle of removing the door by Dremeling out the needed hole/slot in existing one, and by using the pre-existing slot in the van wall as the guide. Method: From the inside and using the existing van's slot hole, drill 4 x 1/16" pilot holes in the corners. From the outside, use tiny dremel cut-off wheel to remove metal between pilot holes. Then use jewelry file to square and clean new slot.

Using the part numbers provided by Dave, I searched EPC for chassis 906.633 (2007-2009 144" WB diesel Sprinter thing, I think) and made the attached PDF just for you, OrioN

In the PDF you'll find the answer to your question, "What is the Covering?"

I named the file 906633-73-RearDoors-115-SlidingDoorRail-and-Suspension, which is the Chassis (906633), the major section (73), the major section description (Rear Doors), the subsection 115 and the description of the subsection (Sliding Door Rail & Suspension)

If you used a VIN, your chassis description would be different. For example my chassis is 906.633, yours is a 906.<mystery-to-me>.

Edit
I accidentally concatenated two picture PDFs and no parts description. I have Aadjusted file content to include both parts & pictures....

"Cover" is part number 110.

I edited my previous posting and included both parts & picture info, instead of two pages of pictures.

I made my own for two bucks. I used a small block of nylon(other materials could work as well probably) and mounted it just below the floor where the sliding door's support arm slides by. It Pitts just enough friction on the arm to catch the door. If you want to open fully and then you simply give a little tug on the handle. Save the bucks! Go simple!

The full list for that section of MB's EPC is attached.

If you need the Dodge part numbers, there are two cross ref docs

Ok guys, to bump this back to the top, we just purchased a 2013 chassis Winnebago ERA Sprinter van. One of my first questions was, can we come up with an intermediate sliding door stop? The RV dealer didn't have any idea.
So reading this thread I see it's an available option from Mercedes.

Does the intermediate stop install allow the door to open all the way if needed?

Yes. Adds a plastic box covering detent mechanism on inside above door.

Rather than burying this at the bottom of this forum post, I posted another thread (http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32682) with how I handled this with a custom-machined two-sided ramp. Works great!

Here's the simplest, least expensive option that works fantastic that cgale posted about:

Do you mean open the door, then put a magnet to stop it from closing again? Then remove it to close it? I guess you would need two to keep it from opening further also.
