    Hi

    I'm new to the forum! Just a quick query regarding the 4th Service.

    I got a quote for a service as it's just turning 4 years old.

    The mymercedesservice website is coming up with the following:

    Service A £247.62

    However, there are additional items which take the cost up to £928.72:

    Replace Brake Fluid £90.00 - I know this needs doing so I'm ok with this.
    Replace Air Filter element £140.28
    Replace Fuel Filter £101.04
    Automatic Transmission: Carry out oil and filter change with transmission 722.9 NAG 2 £349.78!

    Is the Automtaic Transmission oil and filter change, air and fuel filter change required? Or shall I just get the standard Service A and brake fluid change?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Kam05

    I've just bought it a few days ago, so planning to keep it for a good few years.

    I might go independent, in your experience how much cheaper will it be?

    Is the Auto Transmission oil change really required at 4 years?

    Thanks :)

    Should be changed once at 45,000 miles. If its already been done it doesn't have to be done again - that is optional. I had mine done at Black55 (Olly) at not much over £200....and he does a thorough job.

    I'm guessing you did not purchase it from a mb dealer?

    Hi as its listed in the service book to change the oil in the auto box, it's probably best to have it done. Mine was done after 3 year by the previous owner ( lucky for me :)...so maybe your has) on cost l was quoted £600 ish by a main dealer and £360 (using genuine parts) by an independent merc specialist for the 4 year service without the gearbox included.

    i have the same car and i'm paying just over £700 with a service plan from Mercedes and that inc 2 services. I also went down the independent merc specialist but there was only £60 in it and if you have it done my Mercedes you get another years brakedown cover also. Just keeps it all under 'one roof ' for me as also have Mercedes extended warranty also.

    Hi Dreddy
    Welcome to the forum.
    The auto box oil, filter and gaskets need changing at the 3rd year - I bought mine 2nd hand last August from a MB dealer, they tried to convince me that it wasn't required, so I double checked with MB UK using the VIN, it is needed. You will prolong the life of the gearbox and lessen the risk of it breaking.

    Also OT, I got your email, but can't reply to you, you're set up not to receive emails. Anyhow, I haven't found a replacement for mine yet ...
