Hi, I am having problems with the auto box on my V class, it rumbles when hot and makes slipping/ whopping noises when changing gear.
It has only done 34000 miles. The box has had the cluches changed! with no change,? They are changing the solenoids on Monday .
There are no lights on the dash, and the parameters have been checked .

Has anyone had similar problems.
Any help please. Ian.

My 113 Auto often makes a whining noise when changing gear. It has done it from new, so I haven't worried about it. Just assumed it was a servo mechanism actuating to make the shift.

This must be pretty serious as they are changing the box for a new one!. They think it has done it from new and was never picked up under waranty with MB.

Don't rely on the Merc Dealer to resolve the autobox problems....some don't have a clue! You need to speak to an independent automatic gearbox specialist, they will sort out your problem at a minimal cost. Good luck! Try calling Sussex Autos (www.sussexautos.co.uk) who may be able to guide you.

Hi, like you say MB do not have a clue, this was done by Neal Smith trasmitions in Birmingham, they have had it a month now and I still do not have it back!, they have tried to fix the problem and failed. it has become a better deal to fit a new box. remembering that they have already removed it once to change the cluches and solenoids, now it's out again to change the box. I am glad that it is under warranty. It still will have to go to MB to have the parameters set up. I am led to believe that they have to take the engine and box and sub frame out the bottom to do this, It seems a huge job to do twice. But there we are.
