Find yours here! ....

The transmission comes as a complete (transmission + gasket kit), or as individual parts.

The complete transmission costs 2'500 Euros with a 1'000 Euro rebate when returning your old transmission. It is recommended to also replace the converter at the same time (995 Euros).

Labor is anywhere between 1'000 , and 1500 Euros.

.... so , I've made up this MB Dealer repair budget.

<pr><b><i>
Transmission 2'500 (depends oln your model, can be up to 3'500 Euros)
Converter.....1'000
Labor............1'500
rebate.........-1'000
---------------------------
total............4'000 Euros
----------------------------
</pr></b></i>


I have assembled the parts list (EPC) for the complete transmission, and converter for all models.

Nice work as usaul Peter.
Two questions for you. Did you ever do a trans fluid change? Also how many KMs are on your ML?

Yep! ... got over 200'000KM on it!.
Aha. Then the rebuilder will want to replace some bushings. Some kits have sprung up from shops supplying transmission rebuilders....

There goes my theory that a fluid change would prevent these failures. At mercedesshop.com somebody posted list of all the updated parts in the transmissions which indicates to me that the initial design was weak.
I am going to see if I can find that list of parts.

The labor is 9 hours according to the book, but a good tech can do it in 6 hours, maybe you can get them to just charge the actual labor and not the flat rate.

I got a huge break on our price, but you read the saga and the truck was off the road for a combined total of 20 days. I am hoping for a much smoother situation for you. I know how nauseating this is for you. I wish I still worked at a dealer so I could help on this.

Have you contacted MB? Also maybe your service manager can make a plea for you. You might get lucky.
