Replacing the trany kickdown (bowden) cable

Hi folks,

Although I'm an active in other MB lists, I was just turned on to this forum by a friend. It looks like there is a lot of good info here and I look forward to participating.

Right now I have an problem that is rather unusual. My bowden (kickdown) cable on my 82 300D turbo (w123) that goes from the top of the valve cover to the transmission is broken and needs to be replaced. Actually, the length adjustment screw part on top snapped. But never the less it needs to be replaced. I have no idea how to get the transmission end of the cable off and install the new one. There is no working room down there. I understand there is an L shaped hook from the trany that also needs to be connected to the new cable.

I would appreciate any help your collective (and individual) wisdom can provide as to how to replace the cable.

Thanks in advance,
Ron

You can find additional information by doing a search.

Anyway, I replaced one on a '85 300D I had and dropped the transmission valve body to replace it. I think I have read on here where some others have done it without removing the valve body.

Thanks Jim,

How difficult is it to drop the transmission valve body?
