In the Ware workshop of automatic transmission specialists, Stephens Engineering, a 2003 CLK Mercedes gearbox repair was recently undertaken.
The 2003 Mercedes CLK was brought into the Stephens Engineering workshop with a complaint that the Mercedes CLK had no drive when hot, with reports of a high pitched whine. The Mercedes CLK Class models are susceptible to suffering from water ingress and therefore, a glycol test was carried to ascertain whether water was present within the transmission unit of the Mercedes CLK. The glycol test confirmed the Mercedes CLK radiator had failed by letting glycol and water seep into the transmission unit. When a failure of this type occurs within the Mercedes CLK transmission, all of the components and the torque converter must be replaced.
To achieve the 2003 CLK Mercedes gearbox repair, a new radiator can be fitted to the vehicle. To prevent a re-occurrence of this type of Mercedes transmission failure, a retro separate cooler can be fitted. Prior to refitting the Mercedes CLK transmission, the circuit board was also changed and part of the valve body was updated.
The 2003 CLK Mercedes gearbox repair was tested with a ten mile run during which the 2003 Mercedes CLK now performed as new.
