W126 - Automatic Transmission Linkage Bushing Replacement

The absolute first step in any diagnosis of automatic transmission problems in Mercedes-Benz automobiles is to ascertain that the transmission linkage bushings have not disintegrated. These bushings (there are two) are nylon and are subject to significant amounts of heat and dirt and sometimes oil from leaking components. As such, they are very susceptible to breakage and should be replaced at least every 60,000 miles and checked carefully during every major service. When the bushings are disintegrated, this can cause serious internal damage to the transmission because of improper positioning of valves in the valve body.
