Guys,
1992 MB 300E:
When shifting from any gear to drive there is a "clunk" (these is the only way I can think of to describe it) in the rear axle and we get a good jolt, a mechanic said it is some rubber parts inside the rear differencial that wear out, is this true? does anybody knows the name of those parts? thanks for your help.

Hi Kungfu.

True, exept they're on the outside. The two directly behind on top are usually worn. Another is on top, in the front. I believe mounting rubber, or rubber mounts, is the name. Not quite sure in english.

Other culprits are worn propeller shaft rubber couplings. One in front, and one in the back. Worn ATF oil. Worn propeller shaft universal joint, but you would probably notice it before it's so bad that a clunck comes from it.

Usually, swapping the two rubbers behind with bolts and washers, gives a significant improvement when shifting.

Regards

Geir

Flush out your old ATF (torque converter also)
Check condition of flex discs on drive shaft.
And lastly there is an adjustment for shift pressure which will soften or firm up your shifts. This may or may not affect neutral to drive engagement but is worth a try. Usually fluid change will have an effect.
Keep us posted...
