The camshaft adjusters, also known as camshaft phasers, are components in the engine of some Mercedes-Benz vehicles that are used to adjust the timing of the camshafts. The camshafts control the opening and closing of the engine’s valves, which regulates the flow of air and fuel into the engine and the exhaust gases out of the engine. The camshaft adjusters are located on the camshafts and are connected to the engine’s timing chain or belt. They use oil pressure to change the position of the camshaft, which allows the engine to adjust the timing of the valves in real-time. This can improve engine performance and fuel efficiency.

In Mercedes-Benz engines, camshaft adjusters are typically used in combination with variable valve timing (VVT) systems, which further enhance the engine’s performance and fuel efficiency. The camshaft adjusters are controlled by the engine control module, which uses sensors to monitor the engine’s performance and adjust the camshaft timing as needed. This allows the engine to operate at its optimal performance under different conditions, such as low and high speed driving, and cold and warm engine temperatures.
