This is from Larry Bible, ASE Certified Master Mechanic, on the www.mercedesshop.com/shopforum/ website (go to "Diesel Discussion" under "General Discussion"):
"There are a few non turbo, Euro 300D's in the US with a manual, but the turbo's are rare.
If you want a stick, you would have a much simpler, easier to work on, and reliable car by finding a manual 240D. The 300D's are loaded with unnecessary gadgetry. Most people are capable of cranking up their own windows, pulling closed their sunroof and turning up the temperature when they get too cold. All the 300D gadgetry is just something EXPENSIVE to break.
Conversion can be done, but it is not bolt up. The shifter rods will need modification and a driveshaft will probably have to be fabricated. If you do this, be sure to use the adapter plate that goes with the manual transmission and ensure that you take care of the pilot bearing issue."
I did this with a dead 240D as the donar car and found that a 280SE stick was able to donate the right length driveline. It was done with engine in place, the fun is getting the upper bell housing bolts outs with a looong extension. my email is email@example.com if I can help.
Possible, but not worth it. You're better off selling your current car and buying one with the spec you want in it already from the beginning.
No it is not possible
Yes, it would be a lot of work, though.
It may be possible to have a shop to do it for around $250-$1200
it holds five and a half if it's an automatic if it's a manual i dont know
Converting a manual transmission to automatic transmission is not possible but you can replace a manual transmission to an automativ transmission . That is also an expensive deal.
You can change a manual transmission to an automatic. It can cost upwards of 3,000 dollars to do this for a Volkswagen Polo.
A parts car like yours with an automatic transmission.
Buy a Hayne's manual for the Mercedes diesel or a Chilton's manual for Mercedes (it has a 123 Mercedes on the cover). It will show you how to change the inline fuel filter and the main fuel filter.
If your transmission is manual, you will have to change gear. If it is automatic, you won't.
if its a manual yes. for an automatic i never try it but Saturn don't like to change its dam possible
To change an automatic galant to a 5-speed, you need a Computer for the Manual transmission of that year, and an engine.
a lot--you would need transmission, linkage, flywheel,clutch assy., and a engine crankshaft and bearings as thay are made diffrent
Yes, they are both 2nd generation Escorts. This is if you are going to change a manual to a manual or an automatic to an automatic.
i think so
Yes you can, but take it to a shopAnswerYou should NEVER, EVER replace a manual transmission a Miata. Learn to drive stick. No exceptions, except amputees. Answer
this is of course dependant on whether it is a manual transmission or automatic....i recommend that if you dont know how to put it into gear, maybe you shouldnt be driving a mercedes....just a thought
you can get it with manual or automatic.
No. They are two different transmissions.
No the gear's are not automatic , It's manual meaning the rider has to constantly change the gear's himself .
1990kgs manual transmission 2750kgs automatic transmission Hope that helps Cheers
Sell '91 Metro manual. Purchase '91 Metro automatic. You'll be less than $500 out of pocket which is a lot less than a serviceable automatic will cost.
Sell your auto and buy a manual car.
