A class semi auto gear problems.

Hi all. I have a 1999 A160 that has covered 100k miles and it belongs to my wife. I will have to repair it free of charge as it belongs to her and would like to ask if any of you guys can help. I read a post on this site about this very fault and I did take the ACS unit off and strip it. The bushes at the bottom of the armature seem to be ok (they are not stuck or badly worn). I did notice that the armature was very slightly stuck until I tapped it. I put it back on the car and the "F" light that was on the dash had changed to "N". I then tried to bleed the system and could not get very muck fluid out at all. I was told that you should turn on the ign with the bleed valve open and then close it and switch ign off. This was to be repeated a few times. I would welcome any help about this fault and thank you in advance.
