How many miles do you have on the car? It is a 2000 E320 correct? Is it stilll under warrantee?
I thought I read in the Mercedes Club magazine that Mercedes has sealed the transmission and if you open it it voids the warantee. Please check with Mercedes before doing this.
Mercedes found that 90% of transmission problems were improper servicing. the felt it would be better if they could just keep untrained mechanics out of them they would lst longer.
But of course it is your car, Do as you please. I would hate to have you void your warrantee by doing this.
Of course youmay be way over the warrentee.
