My 96 G320 is shifting very hard from 3rd to 2nd gear,
its got only 85000 KM. Should i change the fluid and
filter ?
What else can cause this ?

I would say that a trans fluid change is not a bad idea but, it isn't very likely to make and difference in the way the trans shifts. I would find a reputable transmission shop willing to take a look at it and get a professional opinion. Harsh shifting is pretty hard to diagnose from a distance.

I would do a fluid change. While the lower pan is off, make sure to clean out the "valves". You might have some garbage in one of the valves.
