    S211 gearboxes and s/c button?

    This may be a silly question but when looking at adverts can I tell if an e-class has the 5 or 7 speed gearbox by looking to see if it has an s/c button? Some cars seem to have the S/C button and some dont - is it an indicator that the car has the 7 speed box? thanks

    7g Plus gearboxes.

    I was contemplating my first ATF change as knocking on the door of 40k. However, having read a recent post on here that 7g Plus gearboxes don't need a change for at least 75k, how can one tell if that gearbox is fitted? From what I've read, it appears the change happened in my car when...

    722.5** gearboxes

    Hi, I'm new to this forum but have a long history with W124s. One of mine, a 95 E320 with a 722.504 had a total drive failure, forward and reverse, no slipping just stopped. I did some basic checks for torque converter noise, linkage and oil pressure, and then took it to a local specialist. He...

    7G gearboxes

    This is about the shi4y 7G gearboxes that Mercedes Benz-the-truth pass off as automatic transmissions. I'm not alone, there have been several threads on this Forum lately regarding jerky 7G transmissions, both the 722.6 and the 722.9. I started a thread regarding the occasional neutral I...

    W202 Gearboxes

    Hello new to this forum, i've got a C220D 1996 Manual, i've already replaced the gearbox in it last year because it was popping/not going in gear at times. After 10/20k miles on the 2nd hand replacement box, i can feel the gearstick moving when in third, moving backwards trying to come out of...

    First of all please excuse my ignorance in all matters oily! I have an E320 CDi V6 estate. My question is - Is the gearbox generic to the engine or the vehicle/model? If it is generic to the engine is £695 a reasonable price for a second hand box?

    Auto gearboxes - again!

    About a month ago I had my atf changed by a local (non Mercedes) garage. They did not use genuine fluid or a new filter. The box is a 5 speed version with S & W settings, and is in my 1998 E240 which I love. . I had believed the box was poorly, as it changed jerkily, and often went into limp...
