Sorry about your Blown T-mission blues. Your model is not listed, but I know of two transmissions ready for install. One is on the Germany Ebay site, brand new and in the box. Other is a rebuilt on the www.clubwagen.com site. He is looking for the best reasonable price, with one year guarantee if I remember right. Depends on what you want, one is a five speed for a 460 and the other is a 4 speed auto.

Good luck. Might be quicker and cheeper for one of these.

Good luck :)

Thanks for the heads up! It's a '96 G 320 Europa! Momentarily I think I've shamed the MB dealer into a repair. they wanted to install a new/rebuilt from Deutscheland about $7k w.o. installation!

The diagnosis came in at a broken band and pump? It's being dropped and opened now. If they give-up, I'm going for a rebuild.

For All:
I came across Adsitco in Muncie Indiana http://adsitco.com/catalog/default.asp?CID=1634

It may be valuable for some/many/all/noone in the future.

They offered to do the rebuild for about $1400. and additional for the torque converter ...$275.

Anything else I should do while it's down?

I wish I weren't the pioneer here! But I'll report so others can learn!

gwgng2, It would be most helpful to all of us, including yourself, if you would fill out your profile with your vehicle and location. Thanks!
