Calling MB DOC. Trans question

Thank you for getting back to me on my post "goes into reverse very slowly"
My question is - is the trans reverse adjustment on the out side of the tranny? and if so what would be the proper adjustment procedure. Thank you
1973 450sl

Wink

The reverse adjustment bolt is on the RIGHT(passenger) side of the trans.
Above the kickdown solenoid. You should un-screw that solenoid so you have room to adjust the band.

Loosen the jam nut, TIGHTEN the bolt to 40-50inch-lbs & then back-off adjustment bolt 1.75-2 turns. Re-tighten jam nut & reinstall solenoid. SOLENOID has O-rings & crush seal that should be replaced.

You have to modify the adjustment bolt first.
Here is the link for the band adjustment procedure.

On the 1973 450SL the adjustment bolt ISN'T a sheer-off style like the later ones had! UNLESS some one replaced the unit with a reman unit!
