MOST dealers don't attempt manual trans overhauls(we do)! On the newer generation MB transmissions there are tapered bearings that require precise set-up instead of ball bearings. Several special tools required! Cost of repair is higher than REBUILT exchange in a lot of cases
And of course less than 0.5% of MB's came with manual transmissions.
