I did misunderstand the comment, sorry about that.  I don't have mercedes
mechanics in my area, and the M.B. dealer has told me that their staff are
younger then my car, so that about did it for me with the M.B. dealer doing
my work.  I have found a Volvo mechanic that does a good job for me but he
isn't an M.B. expert, by no means, but he does his best.  I work with what
I have available here.  When I am in Florida for the winter months, I have
lots of M.B. talent available, but not here in N.B. Canada.
My mechanic here is researching what is involved with replacing the seal
for this front pump in the transmission, so any advice would help.  I know
the M.B. transmissions are complicated and I am trying to assist him in
this job.
Thanks for any help.
Ralph
