Hello gang, this is my first post!
Would anyone know if a 2012 Sound 5 radio work as a direct swap for a similar radio in a 2008 Sprinter? I'm not sure about the current radio in my 2008, it does not have the additional functions on the presets that the 2012 has. The 2012 part number is HA 11180037091, Sound 5 NG.
Thanks

probably... but, I think any new radio has to be programmed into the sprinter computer to recognize it. I had a radio replaced under warranty by Wilson MB in Bellingham and they took some extra time when they found out they had to program the sprinter to recognize the new radio.

So, is programming something that a MB dealer needs to do? Is there some way for me to do it without a dealer?

Nope, not if you want a radio that uses the same radio plug in. The computer has to see the radio. You best bet is to install a radio that uses seperate connectors and install the power and ground separate from the sprinter wiring harness.
