The factory suggested fluid is ATF type "A". MB part number is 000-989-88-03, & is very $$$$. Many parts stores still stock the OLD type A.
I use Redline fluid type MTL in my race car.
My owners manual definitely says "Engine Oil SAW 10W/20 W-20" for manual transmission fluid--1982 240D. Are you indicating that MB is now saying ATF type A instead?
