    722.9 Auto box problem. No drive at all. Any help appreciated.

    Very easy. Black cover on the bottom of the gearbox about 20mm by 50mm. Spin the engine on the front pully and undo the 4 bolts 14mm if I remember correctly. I know now as I've learnt my lesson. 😆

    Going into business making clocks! Does anyone want to refurbish their gearbox oil pump to a clock? I will only charge £1150 each? This will be on my shed wall to remind me to be more cautious. 😂😂😂

    Flood water damaged c250d misfire and nox sensor fault HELP!!

    Sump is plastic on my 220 om651. It's not an easy job to get the sump off as the steering rack and subframe get in the way. I did it a few months ago by dropping the frame as low as possible on the bolts and lifting the engine up with an engine crane on the front eye after undoing the engine...

    Which antifreeze?

    Just put blue WkD in it. They come in 300ml bottles but a little fizzy.

    Is there a way to unscrew this weird torx head without a special tool?

    I got these bits in a cheap screwdriver set from wickes about 17 years ago for about £6. They have these on the water pump that i replaced on the om651 engine.

    Update! Jobsworth was right. I've absolutely smashed the lugs off the pump but he has given the all clear for a rebuild of my box after a check over, so he is going to sort the parts out tonight and get on with it. Maybe get my car back on the road early next week. Probably looking at a bill...

    Ok so the car is getting picked up this week sometime by a local Autobox repair centre. Spoke to the boss as he's on call this weekend and he said he feels my pain. Told me he will get the box off to inspect it and then let me know my options but I think we all know which way this is going. One...

    I think your right but at 225 miles I think I will find someone local. It would be a good trip to go and pick my fully working car up though.

    So that is why the error codes were leaning towards low oil level in the box as it had no pressure and if I had a Merc specific code reader that would have show up as low/no oil pressure probably.

    It is fascinating even if I have just had to tell my misses this is gonna run to about £1500! I would rather document it lots on this thread so people can learn from my mistakes.
