Gearbox issues

Post by RS6BRIT » Wed May 24, 2017 4:09 pm

So I'm sure we're all aware of the on going issues with gearboxes, especially that of the FL.
I just found this elsewhere and thought I'd share.

Interesting to know looks like they might have a fix and know what the issue is

Interesting to see that it also affects the pre fl so we're not all safe

The only problem I've had with mine is when I've been giving it some welly and then come to a stop the gearbox clunks really loud in first, heard that it's pretty common problem and nothing to worry about although the sound it makes makes me think otherwise :lol: :lol:

Same with me, if it's cold when it drops into first I get a small clunk, as soon as the number have gone white I don't notice it anymore

Thanks, Matt! Can see the letter now. I only ever had it once and most days the car is sitting so it is pretty cold when I do use it. Haven't heard the dreaded clunk sound for a long time.

Hi all. Just after a bit of help. I bought a 66 plate a45 and all was well for around 4 months. Started to get the knocking noise from 1st to 2nd so took it 8n to Mercedes who said they couldn't find anything so sent me away and said if it does it again then get a Vidio which I did and went back. They had it a couple of days and said it had been sorted so took it away. Cut a long story short, the dealer had said it needs a new gearbox so I said fine it's under warranty. They have had it for over 2 weeks now and have come back to me and said it's a conman characteristic and its not covered by warranty. They said it needs changing but won't do it. What can I do

Try another MB dealer for a second opinion ? Did they explain the sudden change of mind about replacing the box ?

Maybe it doesn’t need a new box they are clunky going from 2 nd to 1 st in auto. Usually only coming down the gears though not up to be honest.
