W114 Trans Vacuum Modulator

Couple of questions on this part.

(1) Should there be any trace of oil on the IN the banjo bolt going up to the intake?

(2) Where can I get a fair price on a replacement?

No oil should be sucked up into the manifold. There is a break inside. The modulator diaphragm can me purchased at the dealer or through the Classic Center.

Thank you Sir.

So I am assuming that once I unscrew the unit then ATF will spill out from the transmision.

There will be some in there. Get the service manual for your car. MB has the CD's for these and others. I have the Ponton and Fintail CD's and there is a section on the auto trans that includes the overhaul procedures. The modulator can be unbolted and the diaphragm replaced without removing the trana from the car. Just don't change any adjustments.

Thanks for the lead, I am picking up a new modulator as well as a CD from the Classic Center tomorrow.

I'm 0 for 2.

It wasn't the modulator, no biggie but the manual won't load up on both my iMac and Windows NetBook.

Is it a crime to set fire to ones own car?

PS: My Girlfriends Daughter took this pics when she went to pick up the aforementioned parts at the center.

Great pics.

As for the CD, all the PDF's are in there so you might create your own index.

If it's not the modulator, then what?

If your CDs are anything like mine...

OPEN (not start) the PROGRAM folder,
and RUN the WEB FILE called MATRIX. (there are 2 of different 'types')

Of course, if you dont see matrix-ANYTHING, you dont have what I do,
and this wont be any help at all.
