Hi Guys,

Got in car this morning (temp showed -1) and set off to work as normal. Gerabox fine just as it always is. Got to work and went to reverse into parking space, noticed a slight juddering vibration (felt through gear lever and audible) as the car reversed. It's definitely gear box not suspension as it does it even when you are stationary.

Journey not lomg enough to get engine up to full temperature, but same journey as every other day. Will take it for a longer run this morning to see if that cures it.

In the meantime any thoughts or similar experiences??

Regards

Steve

Hi John,

Thanks for the response. ATF was changed by MBS at the service before last (about 7K miles ago).

Hapilly though, I took it for a quick thrash up the motorway to get everything nicely up to temp and by the time I got home, everything was back to normal. So I'm hoping it was just a temperature related "glitch",

Regards

Steve

Mercedes cars really do benefit from being run.

Good idea. I often go in to Manchester via the Snake Pass or Cat and Fiddle or Woodhead Pass, when they are not closed with snow. Makes for a great ride to work, especially on the motorbike.
