HI, I am new to the forum and was wondering if anyone could help me with some advice?

The 2nd gear synchro on my 6 speed C220CDI has failed and the MB quote I have been given for the part works out to be more than a reconditioned box! When questioned, the answer I am given is that the synchro can not be supplied on its own, it can only be supplied with the main shaft - hence the price - £675+VAT! The car is a 2001 with only 60k on the clock.

Is it possible to buy just the synchro from another source or is there another solution?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

R.

C220CDI Synchro Problem.

Malcolm,


Thank you for taking the time to reply.

The information you have supplied is most useful and will help me to determine if I can just order a new synchro or if I have to order the main shaft also.

Thanks again,


Robin.
