Service time and mileage for 7G+.


Recommended Posts

Greetings, everyone. My 2013 S204 with 7G+ gearbox has already reached 10 years of age and I am responsible for its service.

There is a discrepancy between the Mr Car Assyst plus and Mercedes Myservice web page on the kind of service required. I am tempted to choose the Mercedes service website. Regardless, the vehicle requires a B9 service which includes the installation of an air filter, fuel filter, and a brake fluid change. Interestingly, it also need an Auto Trans service.

I am sceptical since the second gear box of the vehicle was serviced two years ago (the service before the most recent one) and it was just about 22,000 miles ago. Undoubtedly, it is not yet due. I believed that the requirement was either 50,000 miles or 5 years, whichever occurs first. So far, it has only been requested twice in over a decade.

Can anybody verify?

I will personally handle the remaining tasks of the service and use the oil extractor to take advantage of the conveniently located top mounted oil filter, ensuring a quick and clean process.

He believes that it is a duration of 5 years or 50,000 kilometres. It is important to be aware that some regions have different restrictions. For instance, in the case of the 9G, automobiles in the ROW (EU) are allowed to have a mileage of up to 75,000 miles with no time limit, whilst cars in the NAS region are limited to 75,000 miles during a period of 5 years. I am unsure of your location in the United Kingdom, but when I visited Nottingham, I found an MB Specialist that had the necessary expertise to service our SLK. Not only were they knowledgeable, but their services were also much more affordable compared to an official MB garage. Do you believe that a trustworthy MB Independent will be capable of giving you the correct answer?

That pricing is reasonable given the substantial amount of effort needed. However, I now have 99,000 miles on my vehicle and have previously had two maintenance, with the most recent one being 23 months ago. Therefore, I want to wait for at least another year before getting another service.

Will they agree to do just a stand-alone service on the gearbox, without any other tasks?
