Gearbox Repair FAQs

 

What kind of problems are common with Mercedes automatic gearboxes?

The electro-hydraulic control module is the component that houses the speed sensors that are common to fail on a Mercedes automatic gearbox.

Will I need a new gearbox if it’s slipping out of gear?

You will rarely require a new gearbox if you find it is slipping out of gear. A fault like this can be caused by any number of reasons. At DDR Surrey, we can diagnose the issue using the latest equipment, repairing and replacing only the parts that require it.

Will I need a new gearbox if it’s leaking fluid?

You should always get a leaking gearbox repaired quickly. A leaking gearbox could be caused by a number of issues which usually only require a minor repair and ignoring the issue might lead to further damage. We would need to see your vehicle in order to correctly diagnose the issue.

Customer Reviews

We cover all aspects of aftersales for your vehicle from routine car servicing to fault diagnosis, electrical and mechanical repairs.

"2nd Service on the 2018 E220cdi. A problem did arise as they sometimes do, however its the Customer Service you receive to rectify these upsets which counts. The guy I dealt with went out of his way with his own time and effort to resolve it, and in doing so has secured a long-term relationship with me in future business."

Paramedix999 - Dorking, Surrey - Excellent...!

Thank you again lads ."

Ric1983 - Surrey - Ml420

"Our regular mechanic couldn't resolve the problem we had with our automatic gearbox on our Mercedes. If you get any messages on your dashboard use this garage they will resolve the problem. Very impressed with the level and care of service, would recommend without a doubt. Excellent!"

Michael3333 - Surrey - Automatic Software Updates

"A massive thank you to the person I dealt with and his mechanic who took the time to road test my car to check out the auto box that I had concerns with. They totally put my mind at rest with their experience and advice and as usual, I went home happy with peace of mind.
Highly recommended!"

Paulyvan - Hook, Chessington - Incredibly helpful

"I had problems with the gearbox on my car dropping out of gear and going into park. Went on line to look for a suitable place to take it to and came across DDR’s website. Read the reviews which were very positive and drove to there site in Ashtead. After discussing the problem with them and a test drive being carried out it was arranged for me to bring the car in. Left the car and later in the day received a call to say that they were unable to duplicate the problem and suggested that I drive it more and see if the problem reoccurs. On collecting the car I asked how much I owed and the reply was”nothing as we did not fix anything”. I know of other garages that charge £60:00 to plug in the test box. Also, I was virtually leaving them a blank cheque as they could have come back and say, “Oh you need a new transmission”.
I will definitely go back to them and recommend them to anyone I know that needs good honest service. Thanks guys."

E350 - Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey - E350 transmission

"Having experienced abysmal service from a Mercedes main dealer in Surrey, I was very cautious and concerned where I’d take my E250 to next. DDR Surrey was recommended to me by a friend and I have to say that every aspect of the service I received was exemplary.

They listen to the problem I reported and managed to book the car in without too much delay. The fault was identified and subsequently reported to me with the price of repair which included parts and labour. The job incurred more time than originally expected but the price remained the same.

The politeness and professionalism from the DDR team is something that other works shops should strive towards. I will definitely be using DDR Surrey in future. Highly recommended!!"

Steve Haire - Woking, Surrey - E250 Fault Diagnosis

"Having purchased a 2003 Convertible CLK from a trader as a present for my mother's 70th birthday I wanted a Mercedes specialist, DDR, to check it over for full peace of mind.

Initially, I was going to have the car fully serviced as I thought it had a slight misfire. Instead, on speaking with the team at DDR, they recommended that they do a full check/diagnosis and then discuss elements that actually needed doing.

It turned out that it was actually a replacement gearbox mount that needed replacing and that removed the occasional engine vibration. Of course they picked up on a few other elements which I am sure other garages would have missed.

All in all an excellent service with everything explained to me in detail - very transparent and at a reasonable price. MB main dealers could learn something from the team at DDR.

Needless to say, the car was perfect when I got back and my mother was delighted. She has already pledged to have it serviced with DDR given my feedback about them.

Thank you to the team."

Y Rousseau - Chessington, Surrey - Mercedes Benz ML350 CDI

"Having to arrange serving and bespoke repairs on my E320, I was introduced to DDR by a fellow engineer,followed by two personal recommendations of the first class service and attention to detail,

Indeed the recommendation and praise by others is well deserved followed by my own for works completed to a 1st class standard,reporting on repairs, maintenance,serving in a clear understandable manner.

To say I am very very happy with service is an understatement."
