    My CLK 320 auto seems to pull away in second all the time if you pull away fast it then seems to change down to first but after your moving.

    Is this normal?

    Have you inadvertantly switched the auto box to C or W?

    Driving in W means it will move off in 2nd gear, unless kick down is applied, then it will shift to 1st.

    If in S, it should move off in 1st.
    Maybe the switch is faulty?

    Hi

    This may be of use to you if your set up is the same. The W/S switch tends to stick in W.

    Mine looks different to that i have just removed the top of the switch and theres a printed circuit board underneath.

    heres some pictures, sorry about the quality

    In the middle of the board is a small raised piece with a slot in it one side has a metal contact and the other is just plastic, all the switch does is place a piece of plastic in the slot, i cant understand how this works,,,anyone got any idea?
