Well, I knew it had to happen sometime. I parked my 300D and went in for dinner and when I came out and started her, she would not go into gear. 262,000 miles is not bad on the original clutch. But here's the problem... I have a 5-speed manual transmission #717.400 imported to the US. I am not sure what exactly is not working. I assume it is the pressure plate and clutch disk. Does anybody know if I can get parts for it over here? Anybody have an approximate cost for replacing a clutch in a 240? I'm at one of those points where I have to decide whether to fix it or sell it.......
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
