In the Stephens Engineering workshop we have recently seen a number of Mercedes vans brought for gearbox repairs; we recently carried out a Mercedes Vito gearbox repair. As with the Mercedes Sprinter, the most common gearbox fault for the Mercedes Vito vans is torque converter failure. There are warning signs from the Mercedes Vito van before severe damage occurs to the gearbox and if the problem is caught early and repairs carried out, usually the gearbox itself is unaffected.
The Mercedes Vito is popular hard working vehicle and failure of the torque converter is due to the hard work the automatic transmission undertakes. The Mercedes Vito gearbox problems start with the internal bearing begin breaking up as a result of work these transmissions get through. At Stephens Engineering, we have our own converter shop within our workshop and as a result, we are able to carry out modifications to the Mercedes Vito gearbox, to strengthen and repair the faults and also improve the lock-up operation.
The first warning symptoms of a potential Mercedes Vito gearbox repair being needed are a judder on a light throttle and judder or stalling when coming to a stop in the Mercedes Vito.
