The MBUSA theft-related parts (TRP) program includes the valve body for the 722.9 transmission and does not grant the independent garage access to this item, currently. Note that TRP is a voluntary policy by MBUSA and not required under US law to grant access to independent technicians. Additionally, NASTF jurisdiction includes service information, not parts availability. However, MBUSA does voluntarily participate in the NASTF Vehicle Security Professional Registry program to license access to TRP by independent technicians and locksmiths cleared in the NASTF VSP Registry for TRP items listed under the "exception" in Section 4.2.1 of their Aug 2013 policy seen at NASTF continues to encourage MBUSA to consider release of all TRP items for purchase by independent technicians cleared and active in the NASTF VSP Registry. Further, NASTF anxiously awaits a promised update to the MBUSA TRP policy which will be released as news on when received from MBUSA.
