If you have ever tried to remove and reinstall a shift rod attachment clip under your Benz you know how frustrating it can be. On some chassis like the 201 models it is almost impossible to even get to the clip let alone remove it with standard hand tools!
The plastic shift bushing is a very common part that needs to be replaced on older Mercedes. Can you believe it is the exact same part that was used on all models for over 25 years! It is an inexpensive part that can cause big problems if it breaks out.
This manual is part of our Advanced DIY Mechanic Series. It covers advanced procedures in simple terms with photos to illustrate every step. The format size is 8.5 x 7 inches. It is printed on 28 pound stock paper and is wire bound to allow it to stay open when on your workbench.
How many of us have never overfilled our automatic transmissions??? With this syringe and correct diameter and length of tubing, you can easily remove any excess without having to drain it out of the pan!!! Comes with free on-demand video instructions.
I have used a lot of different clamping tools over the years to prevent fluids from leaking out when removing coolant, fuel, or brake fluid hoses. Most work ok. Some are hard to use in tight places. Many do not stop every last drip from coming out of the hose.
This is the absolute best gasket maker when you have a clean and tight metal to metal contact. Examples of where you would use this is SEALING the rear differential cover, aluminum oil pan where is mounts to the engine block, etc.
