i had the same problem with my 87 300e. i had many trans shops tell me they would be glad to rip it out and rebuild it. for thier best price of 1800-3200 dollars. ( mercedes sells rebulit trannys for 1000 dollars with a core charge!)
anyway i decided to change the fluid, (not a very good job either, fluid is still dark) anyway, after the fluid change my trans ran like new! i would suggest getting your filter and fluid changed first before going for the rebuild or exchange. it would be a small price to pay if that solves it.
good luck!
p.s. tell me if it works, if you choose that route.
