Twenty years as a Factory trained Tech.
Eight or so years as Coutts Workshop Forman. Left the Dealership Network 2008 to start own business. This man is a cleaver dicky with the modern stuff as well as the real old school models. Spotted him resotring a 190 SL in the back of the shop!
I would highly recommend Lester Gribble - Autotorque ltd - Mercedes-Benz service and repair specialist. This guy is very good! And charge out rate is great as well. Situated in Palmerston North - New Zealand.
LLoyd Marx in Hamilton would have to be one of the best restorers in the world. Just finished a 300SL roadster which was taken from New Zealand to America and 'cleaned up' the opposition in concours.
Now working on an aluminium body Gullwing - ex Sir Sterling Moss
+1 on Harindra (proprietor) at Northshore car clinic (on sunnybrae road) he knows ALL Mercs back to front and upside down, The man is a walking diagnostics machine that can perform the repairs as well. Top notch guy. 100/100.
I've got w202, 722.6 transmission with 2-3rd gear slip/flare, wonder if anyone had this issue before and manage to fix them without changing the gearbox.
I've read around in the forum and it seems there is a couple of thing that can be done first (valve spring replacement, bowden cable adjustment, vacuum line replacement) before going all the way with new gearbox.
Would appreciate any recommendation for mechanics who will do this, and I have been to Harindra and EC Mercedes and 1 other mechanic, and they all suggest new/2nd hand gearbox.
