I have read and re-read your excellent post on servicing the 722.9 trans.
I went ahead and purchased a service kit with genuine M-B fluid.
Then I discovered my 2003 Updated S500L doesn't have a torque converter drain plug.
With some help from other BenzWorld Members I have designed a DIY flushing system.
I would appreciate any feedback from you as you certainly know what you are talking about.

Regards from Down Under,
I read your how to on the coupe lense replacement, and i was wondering if i could pick your brain a bit!
to make a story short my headlight got smashed andd it was the xenon one ending with 59 i believe, but since I had such a hard time finding one i ended up buying the hid version hoping that the housing was teh same and i can switch the rest ...ballasts and such! anyway what i wanted to ask you is do you know where to get replacement lenses that are actually glass, since the new one feels plastic to me, secondly wanted to ask you if you knew there are two kinds or what, one plastic other glass, anyway thanks in advance
I came across your DIY for the transmission change. Very nice write up!! it doesn't look that complicated as I want to do this myself. Can't afford MB dealer prices! Do you still have this car? I know this post is old
My question about the dipstick. So what you are saying is when you need to fill the fluid, initially fill with 4 quarts at the 25 degree mark. Drive for 15 minutes and check the fluid again. Should the temperature of the fluid rise to 80 degrees or are we are looking to see what the fluid level is between the 25-80 mark.
Re the auto transmission fill location. Do we need to break the cap open and reseal the tube with a new ''cap''?
Car details: 1995 C220 base model. What is the 722.xxx mean? is that the transmission # or something?
