How hard is it to rebuild a 190e trans?

A lot of you were there during the chicken coop Benz meet at Dean's back in November and know about my whole transmission ordeal - a technician failied to put on the trans filter gasket correctly, which left a nice 2-3 inch gap for the trans fluid to evacuate causing the thing to burn up less than 300 miles later....

Soooo...i'm thinking about taking the trans apart. I've got nothing to lose really how difficult is it to rebuild these things? I'd like to believe the metal bands in it are bad because there were metal fragments in the bottom of the oil pan. Secondly, I'm a newb to trans inspections. Would something broken or worn in it be painfully obvious?

Lastly, if it's a no-go, where can I go in either MD or DE to have a trans rebuild? It's already out of the car

I'm wondering the same thing. I have a spare auto trans from my parts car that I'm planning on rebuilding and eventually putting into my diesel.

Anyone know of a transmission manual or a DIY on rebuilding them?

What's the status of your car now? Is it finished?

The guy Drew who was at the meet too said it's fairly easy, but would it be easy on what level. And now that I think of it, it might be in the Haynes Manual. I recall looking at the manual possibly. They had a good breakdown of something with gears...idk. but yeah, if anyone knows a manual/diy or a shop please share

The body work is done to the car (minus the paint), but I'm still on the lookout for a few engine parts. Once I find those, the car should hopefully be good to go.

There's an ATSG service manual for repairs to the 722 unit.

As for easy . . . totally subjective question there. There's more than a few rollers, shafts, needle bearings, forks and pins in any auto trans to make it a challenge, particularly if something is broken, snapped off or burnt.

Turn over? It doesn't work in any of the gears except for reverse

Found it MTI, thanks

Not too hard but you have to know what you are doing. I rebuilt my first one from my 91 2.6 and it's on the shelf with FGS mod. I'm rebuilding one from a 93 2.6 now to have.
