Geez Loueeze.

Here I am in rainy Queensland.
A friend of mine (widow) lives on the Gold Coast. She owns a 1997 W202 c200 Esprit. Car has less than 200,000k's up. M111HFM - 722.6
For years she has taken her car to a "retired Mercedes Expert" to have her car serviced.
The car played up a few days ago - some clunking from the transmission.
She took it to her "retired Mercedes expert" who told her the car was too old to work on now - take it to the wreckers :bs:

She rang me. I'm on the Sunshine Coast - 200ks away.
Rather than go down there I looked up our Ozbenz forum for preferred MB indies on the Gold Coast.

QLD members recommended Stefan at Gullwing motors in Ashmore.
Gullwing motors turned out to be in walking distance form her home.

Took the car to Gullwing. Put the car on Star. - Faulty electrical connection plug on 722.6. No communication to TCU. Lots of fluid actually has leaked out.

Transmission fluid has never been changed. So much for her "Retired Mercedes Expert"

Needs transmission service. Possible leakage into TCU.

She's been quoted $330.00 for transmission service or $800.00 for TCU change and service.

She is as happy as Larry.

A big thank you to QLD members for the recommendation from her. :notworthy:
