The history is a long one, but here is the short version. Transfer case started going bad at 18,000 miles. Over a three year period I went through 4 sets of tires, two TC flushes, numerous alignments and tire balances. At 75,000 miles they tell me the TC is bad. I argued it was the TC all along Mercedes provided the case I paid $450 labor. This is a new vibration from directly below the shifter and the dealer left me a voice mail that they believe it is the converter, but they are going to do some more testing. They have had the car 2 days. They treat me very well and if I argue any part of it they will be good to me. I have 6 Mercedes' all serviced at the dealer.
I'm just curious as what the potential cost might be for a torque converter. I can't recall if it has had a trans flush yet, but I do have all the dealer suggested always performed. I can put a torque converter is one of my US made 60's cars myself for 400 bones just not sure of the cost of a MB converter.
