I don`t know about the brake band I`ve never heard it called that but I`m not sure about that. I had the same problem with a 83 300D not sure if they are the same. It would slip in 1st when you went to take off then once you got roll it would shift fine.There is a up graded piston the old ones come a part. There is a sleave that needs to be replaced too. I got the parts from Phil . He will get you the right stuff you need if you decide that`s your problem. It sure sounds like it to me. If you pop that cover off and it comes out in pieces you know thats your problem. There is good info on this site about it this is where I found out about it.
81 240D 116,000 mi. motor, car 283,000 81 300D 155,000 81 300 unknown 81 300SD 221,000
