Hi All,

Newbie here... Hello to you all !

I have just purchased a C-CLASS 220 CDI (2002) 173k on the clock off my friend that has a suspect 2nd gear and before getting the box taken out and 2nd gear rebuilt I was wondering if there is anything I can check first before doing so.

The car when moving will not even look at 2nd gear,
When standing still it will go in half way and when you release the clutch it grinds and pops out,
It has only done this in the last week,
The remaining gears are still there a little sloppy but goes into every gear no problem,

Thanks for the advice !!

how do I go about checking ?
when it is on the ramps get somebody to try and engage 2nd gear while i move the linekage and see if it goes in?

The linkage slots into a selector lever on the gearbox. At either end there are some small bushes, if you are under the car and locate the selector rod you will see them. They can break apart.
