The new replacement Auto Transmission Mount 1242400618 has a bolt on top that goes inside the hole below the output flange/yoke. On my mercedes e320 wagon, due to various issues involving driveline, flexidiscs replacement, etc., this hole is missing. My question is the Transmission case rear part number 124 270 01 11 has this hole that the tranmission mount bolt goes in or is it part of the transmission housing? See picture that I circled (red) that is missing due to damage. Anyone out there can confirm this is part of the transmission case rear and can be replace? Thanks to all for reading.

augapfel, Thank you so very much for your last post and the picture. It looks like the bottom hole I am missing is part of the transmission rear case/housing. Probably broken off due to the driveline was falling apart and causing all kinds of chain reaction damages. The part number on your picture is too blurry to make out it. I am guessing the first three numbers are 123 and the rest is fuggy. This TRANSMISSION CASE REAR part number 124 270 01 11 is not compatible with yours. I have been trying to find other compatible mercedes models for this particular part and so far I only come up with this:

TRANSMISSION CASE REAR 124 270 01 11
Transmission 722.369 fitments types:

300E 1993 Non 4 Matic

300CE 1993

300TE 1993 Non 4 Matic

E320 94-95

I thought there were more models/years besides the above-mentioned fitments that are compatible with this transmission rear case. Anyone out there to comment on this? Thanks to all for reading.

Someone mentioned that this issue is not a transmission case rear but an extension housing. I am enclosing a picture that is much better and the circle red represents the missing hole/slot which the transmission mount bolt goes up and inside the hole tightened with a nut.

Is this missing hole a part of the transmission case rear or extension housing? Anyone out there knows exactly this is?

I swung by my garage earlier today to snap a pic of the tailshaft housing on one of my "needs help" 1988 transmissions. The part is clearly marked 124 271 08 01. Could be a suffix. An "E" probably. The fact that it's different than the part on your car is no surprise based on your p/n research and it seems you'll have to find a 1993-only part.
From the last pic you've posted the whole shape of that area changed quite a bit between 1988 and 1993. I can't tell exactly what is going on.

augapfel, Thanks for following up in your last post. Today, I spent practically all day trying to get this transmission case rear housing, part number 124 270 01 11 by going online cars.part and other websites that have used or rebuilt transmission ( hoping additional transmission parts laying around and not attach to the transmission assembly itself) and making phone calls to various auto salvage yards that has this 722.369 transmission parts. Bottom line, these transmissions are sold as a complete assembly, not individual parts. I have two choices, actually three including this website marketplace, pulll a part in Nashville, currently out of the compatible models at this time, or the dealer ( which is expensive) Interesting research on my end. Oh well, live and learn. Stay tune for further adventures and I will follow up on this .

Sounds like you'll be crawling under cars in a U-Pull-It yard to douse yourself with ATF if you want to get that part. BTDT. It'll be an ordeal. First you have to get the driveshaft out of the way and that means dealing with 2 flex discs and the center support bearing. Then you'll need a 1 3/16", 12-point deep socket to remove the nut that holds the output shaft flange to the output shaft. Be prepared to grunt.

augapfel, Thanks for your excellent last post. You are correct about going through the processess in getting the transmission case rear housing out of the mercedes if I have to go to a pull a part. The closest pull a part location does not even have these models that has this particular part presently. It may even takes weeks to see if the pull a part location have one or not, who knows. In addition, I am not even sure if it is worth the aggravation, stress and the driving to the location. You gave me some insight about this situation. The more I thought about you wrote, the more tempted that I am going to buy this part online through the dealership. By the way, excellent picture of the transmission case rear housing. I am going to give myself a couple of days or so to continue to find the part by itself online. After that, if nothing comes up that is reasonable price, then I just have to order the part through the dealership. Stay tune.

it might be easiest to just get a whole rebuilt transmission, these run around $1800 from sunvalley, etc. catch-22, your existing transmission is too damaged to get the core charge, I'm not sure how much more that is ($1800 was the price last I looked, after core refund).

LeftCoastGeek, thanks for your imput. This is the worse case scenario as far as getting a rebuilt transmission, if it comes to that. I am only one part away (transmission case rear housing, part number 124 270 01 11) to get the transmission and engine running. Hopefully, the transmission will be fine after I put all these parts together(flex disc, driveline, shifter rod, shifter gear box, shifter transmission bracket,brushings for shifter, among others). I hate it when unsuspecting additional problems/issues that keeps coming up after I thought I got everything done.
