I guess apart from not quoting the very first type I also mixed the other
two stating the later type (STC1528 "direct entry type") as the one
compatible with the second batch of 200Tdi type Discos.
The funny thing is that at least here in Greece several vehicles which
supposedly should use the third type (direct entry) have handbrakes that
require the NTC6125.
I guess there was a surplus of old type handbrake assemblies so they found
their way to a few 300Tdi type (1995-1998 MY) vehicles.
Take care and thank you very much for the clarification and correction
