Many thanks to this forum.....

I have just turned the last bolt on a total transmission swap ( and test drive!) on my wife's C280 sport......on four jack stands, a floor jack, and a sears set of hand tools. I am a long time advanced shade-tree, but without this forum, I would have NEVER done this job.... All I can say is THANK YOU to every poster who has taken the time to put detailed help on here about the various subjects I have relied upon during the lllooonnngg process of the transmission project. I say again, profuse thanks to this forum, and a hearty recommendation to any new guys waiting to be a member.....

Welcome to Benzworld. But I feel I must add a safety note here for new members and readers of this thread, a car on four axle stands is not safe, one knock on a corner of the car and it can spiral down on top of you.

A trolly jack connected to the rear axle taking the weight of the rear end whilst four axle stands are in place will give a safety net in this event.
