Help with Sprinter 311 cdi
New to this forum and needing some help...would appreciate all and any that other users can give me.
I own a Merc Sprinter 311 cdi sprintshift van, year 2002, W903. Recently when using it developed a fault with the gearchange, as it would not change gear as it should. It would not come out of neutral more so once the engine had been running for a while. I would stop put it into neutral and switch off, when I came back to it maybe 15 minutes later, started it, it refused to shift into gear or automatic. I have read that the hydraulic oil may be low so I filled it (with some difficulty!!!) and this did seem to fix the problem.
Got about another 700miles from the van and it started again, so filled the hydraulic oil again and seemed fine but only got 250miles this time.
I have no intention of doing this for the foreseeable future I've decided to convert the vehicle from the 6 speed sprintshift gearbox back to manual gear change. I have sourced the parts to convert to a 5 speed manual gearbox but my question to you all is this...
I understand that you can convert a 6 speed sprintshift gearbox back to a 6 speed manual gearbox...can anyone give me an idea of how to do this i.e. parts needed etc.
Thank you for your help.
