gearbox re-call

Post by dumfunk » Wed Jan 02, 2019 3:21 pm

ok, just come back from the main stealers after a SAM update and was talking to the guy who came to tell me it was ready to go. I mentioned that sometimes when i put it in reverse it crunches, not all the time, just sometimes. He said they are re-calling some cars for a gearbox fault, said mine was ok but didnt say what the criteria was for qualifying or if it was by vin numbers, but it might be a good idea to contact your friendly local stealer and check if yours is on the "list".
Just thought I'd pass this on to you loverly lot...
Happy new year.

Funny enough, dropped mine off this morning for this.

Mercedes have created a “TIP sheet” (if this means anything to anyone”) on the issue.

Just hung up to MB to post on the forum the outcome. They’re replacing the Output Shaft, Dampening sleeve and possibly the Oil Pump Gear if needed. Although they couldn’t replicate the issue, they looked it up on their database and saw it’s a common issue.

I’m surprised you’re not receiving the same level of service. I’d ask them to look into it and go ahead with the recommended work under warranty. It’s obvious to you the issue is there. Don’t let it linger.

Oil pump gear is on back order. Picking the car up today and returning when they have it in stock.
