I ordered a complete set of books from my MB dealer. As I recall they were
over $100 for the 3-book set but they have info on everything but the auto
trans. I've pulled the AT in my wife's 300D and replaced one set of clutches
and one band but the real brain-twister is the valve body. There are 13 or
14 different valves in that thing and I can't remember how many steel ball
valves are involved but it sure isn't for the faint of heart to work on
those. I cleaned the entire valve body, reassembled it using a single
exploded view that had been copied several times before I got it but was
shocked when everything worked! Been more than a year now and still going
Perfectly normal. On my 81 300Tdt there is actually a clear line that runs
from the filter housing through the firewall and into the dash.. Filled
with oil, I reckon. Sort of strange, but it does seem to work.
