My E350 Cdi went i to mercedes main dealer for a service last week. It had an A service and the brake fluid service was done. According to the service schedule the gearbox has been serviced every 40k miles. On this service I was quoted £1103 and that was to include a transnission service at the same time. The engine code is a A207 engine and the gearbox is a 7G+ its on the 265hp model. (Goes like stink). The type of oil required for that gearbox and the service duration is my question.

Even thou the schedule with 12 stamps states the transmission has been serviced every 40k Mercedes are saying no. That model should only be serviced every 60k miles.

I drove it off without the trabsmissiin service being done and within the bext 1k miles have had problems with what i believe is the transmissiin. Prior to the engine service the gears held to long before change and i found myself having to just flick the gear paddle to drop it into a higher gear. Downshifting and uoshifting is normaly realy smooth and it produces over 56 mpg. The ebgine is perfect. But. This transmissiin problem has got so bad today it became jerky and just would not change gear at all. Ironically i had kept to the 40k service schedule it would have been done already. Howecer. Mercedes are adamant they are correct.

Is the oil in my transmissiin supposed to be 226.14 or 226 15 frankly i can not get an answer out of mercedes. To help check i dont mind providing the reg HV61 YSL.

Mercedes have said even though it has just been serviced they want £122 to plug it in and get this. £435 to change the oil and filter in the transmission.

I cant help feeling, that if they had done it when they were told to do it, I wouldnt have this problem or these extra costs.

Apart from no one can tell me the type of engine or transmissiin fluid, that im having my pants pulled down

Not nice from Mercedes Coventry

The sheet they have provided just confuses the situatiin

Hi , I have a C207E400 with the same gear box as yours.

I have a Mercedes Service plan and the dealer changed the gear box oil at 5 year interval. The car mileage was in the region of 34,000 miles.

Members with far greater knowledge off gearbox oils will be able to inform of specification.
 
7g+ is 5 years or 77,500 and takes only the 236.15 blue ATF which was Co developed by Shell , Fuchs and Afton .

As above, and this also what the OP is showing in the attachment.

A 2011 car with 75k miles should have had it done in 2016 and then again in 2021.

But the thing about MB Service Care Plan is that it dpes not cover 'catch-up' servicing.... the dealer would have been well within their rights is they claimed that it was missed last year and therefore they won't do it under the plan this year.
 
Even if it was supposed to be done (and it appears it wasn't according to the above posters) are you really trying to suggest that the fault you have is because the transmission oil change is one week late!!?

Your engine code is OM642
A207 is the body style code 👍
 
You were going to pay £1100 for an A service on a 2011 car ?
I think you should be going to an independent for a quote next time, that's a bit on the steep side.
You should be able to get the gearbox serviced for around £300 inc the torque converter.
Your gearbox issue could be down to a software update.
 
As @geoffus says , it’s MB specialist time ( or was some years ago ) .
Why don’t you give someone like Mercland MB specialist a ring for a gearbox service ?

You have definitely had your pants pulled down (and some) if you paid £1100 for an oil change and brake fluid change.
It is unlikely that your current symptoms are anything to do with the fluid having been changed or not.
I would ask MB if they updated the software on the last service; that is more likely to be causing your symptoms.
As others have said you'd be much better off at an independent; Mercland in Nuneaton comes highly recommended.
 
Think he has lost interest, hasn't been on since his first posting.
