Hi, I'm not new to this forum I used to ask questions years ago but got a bit bogged down with it all. Television was a member and a great help back thenhe lived in Lyme Regis and I had the pleasure of meeting him at his house one time when I had a problem with an ignition switch. I have owned six S210s, two W123 coupes, a W124 saloon, a w124 coupe and a W210 saloom in the past 20 years so I am a bit of a Merc nut. I have always maintained the cars myself, something I am quite proud of and something I have really enjoyed.
Currently I am enjoying a 2002 S210 320 CDI 7 seater, these are fantastic cars they just keep giving. Unfortunately I have a gear selector problem with this car. I dropped the gearbox sump pan and found the plastic manual valve bracket connector had broken. This part has a part no. of A140277054 and is unavailable from Mercedes Benz as a piece only a whole 722.6 transmission valve block. I think the part no. is correct but very difficult to read, according to an American website it is called a 'Manual Valve Bracket Connector'. Does anyone know where I can find this little piece of plastic please, I really want to get the car back on the road. Many thank
Phil.

Thank you, hope someone can help, it seems ridiculous you can't buy a part from Mercedes that has a part number on it.

Your best bet would be a Mercedes breaker with a faulty 722.6 transmission that they'd be prepared to open up for you.

Hi, thank you. Here it is as you can see there is a piece broken off of it.

I was looking at the possibility of 3d printing it but it looks a bit complex without having the broken one and also quite difficult.
As suggested I'd call around breakers yards looking for a knackered transmission to get the part out of.

You could also try an automatic transmission specialist.

Hi, thank you, my wife had suggested 3D printing so I am looking into that, I've been in touch with Dunnings Automaticsc at Weymouth who may have a scrap box so am going to see them on Monday plus I am in contact with Newco Autoline in Germany who have them in there stores. I'll keep you informed and onceagain thank you.
