1978 450 SL
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Hello, I have a 1978 450 SL W107. I had bought this car recently and when I bought it the person pointed out a clunking in the back end that occurs when you accelerate rather fast from a stopped position. It is both right and left as well as straight forward. He had a used transmission put in a few years ago and it has happened since. The transmission shifts well otherwise and if you slowly accelerate it does not clunk. When I go over bumps, there is no clunking. It clunks about 10 times and then is done. Feels/sounds like the wheels of an airplane as they are being lowered before landing. I have had the car 2 weeks and otherwise love it. Thanks in advance for any advise.
