I can do no better than point the reader to the website of Manfred Princz who specialises in OM636 parts and service kits. West4 x4. I have dealt with this gentleman on a number of occasions and have found him to be extremely helpful.

He also has an ebay shop and a Facebook page

There is a copy of the smaller OM636 manual in the Manuals section Link to manual

We have recently been notified that there is an alternative source for OM636 spares at barringtondieselclub  – this appears to be in South Africa.
