arrrrghhh, no reverse!
Well I'll be bringing my 94 E320 with 83K miles into my indy to check my trans which stopped engaging in reverse last week. He quoted me $1800 for a rebuild, if needed. My local MB dealer quoted my $3560 for a rebuilt +10 hours of labor at $97 per minus a credit of $1500 for my trans, or a total of $3030 plus 6% tax! Damn, with only 83K miles should I just replace the reverse clutch or rebuild the entire trans as the labor cost is somewhat identical? What would you do?
