Sealed for Life Transmissions - Breaking in and Inspecting the Fluid - On Demand Video

The 722.6x is not as "sealed" as you would think. The "break in" process is easy to learn!

This applies to those Mercedes with the 722.6x 5 speed automatic transmissions built from 1998 to 2006. They have a cap on the transmission fill tube with the words "MB Workshop Only." Heaven forbid if you break into one of these transmissions!

Kent is just kidding… :-)  In this on demand video he explains the process for breaking the seal in the cap, removing the cap, measuring fluid level, and removing a small amount of fluid for a thorough visual inspection. For an introduction to these transmissions see Part 1 which is available for viewing under the transmission tech help section or on the Mercedessource YouTube channel.

NOTE:  You will need some means of accurately measuring the fluid, either with a Mercedes factory dipstick or with the Mercedessource Fluid Inspection Kit that includes both a dipstick and a fluid extractor built into one unit. See related products to learn more.
