A180 Auto Gearbox Sensor Problem

Hi. I'm new to the forum so hope I've added this to the right place, apologies if not. I have A180 on a 55 plate which has been a great car and I want to keep it. The car has done just over a 100,000 miles and we are experiencing gearbox problems. The car goes into "limp home mode" with an error Auto Transmission Fault - visit workshop. The gear box oil was changed and we put it into a Mercedes garage to find out the problem. £150 later and the error codes suggest a sensor problem. Apparently the sensor is £1100 plus vat and a days labour (so over £2000). The other problem is the engineer is saying when he takes the sump out he might find some "burning" and then the car will need a new gearbox. Has anyone else experienced this problem and what did you do. I really don't want to scrap the car.

Thanks in advance.
