    why not just go and get them from MB, I dont think they are too over priced on the filter and gaskit?

    Hi,
    Be aware that the sump bolts can very easily shear, and it may pay you to replace the pilot bush at the same time. These are a very common failure point, and are about £20 from MB.
    I personnally would only use genuine MB fluid.
    You will also need a dipstick to check the level, as the dipstick is a specific service tool, though you can make one from a length of curtain wire and marking at specific points, the measurements are on here somewhere.
    I don,t think you will find a drain plug on your Torque Convertor, so you won,t be able to completly drain the system, only the box itself. There is a way of cranking the fluid that won,t drain out but i,m not 100% of the method. Maybe someone else can give you a heads up on it.
