Re: Gear box

Got mine back, for the second time last Thursday. Only to take it back again 15 minutes later as the AMG “Specialist” didn’t know how much coolant to put in it 🤨 https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190219/f238aa95c03ff7e44a3f96744bfee206.jpg All seems well! They blamed the second fault on the replac...

Are we saying that a "healthy" gearbox should NOT crunch even when selecting reverse first thing when cold?
Correct. After mine went in to Poole, they advised the "Crunch" was causing the whole engine to move!

Re: Gear box

Hi All, having been without my CLA for 9 weeks (having only had the car for 2 weeks) I can understand what you've all described clearly! Sandown Poole DEFINITELY know about this problem having had the engine and gearbox out 3 times and replaced the clutch twice (all under warranty). The crunch was s...

Re: Reverse Gear Grinding....

So, today marks 6 weeks since the car went in for a replacement speaker and I'm no wiser as to when the car will be returned. After fitting the car back together and road testing, it was decided that it wasn't shifting gears properly, software updated to no avail, logs sent to MB in Germany who advi...

Re: Reverse Gear Grinding....

Oh dear, not good, I would push for some sort of compensation or good will from MB for being without the car for so long. Maybe free servicing in the future. I've logged it with MB Customer Services who have advised they want to offer some sort of compensation but priority is getting the car sorted...

Re: Reverse Gear Grinding....

So after nearly 4 weeks of the CLA being with Sandown Poole, I am still running around in a C220 estate. I was told last week that after re-assembly, the road test was not successful and gear changes were a problem. Most likely down to software, alas, no problem with software could be found and afte...

Re: Reverse Gear Grinding....

Certainly does seem that way and yes the technician described it as a crunch. He also said it was so bad it made the engine “judder” when they watched it. Engine is coming out tomorrow so they can strip the gearbox and either replace output shaft and rebuild or replace the gearbox entirely. Thankful...
