2002 Other Mercedes Benz Models 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 69,600 miles
Recently the tranmission was slipping on my 02 mercedes. Took it to Mercedes, the diagnostic showed nothing wrong. Mercedes drop the transmission to check it out and found that the transmission was rusted. They said water got into the transmission and rusted it out. Since it was not mechancial, they would not cover a new tranmission.
How can water get into a sealed transmission? Can this happen? I thought the transmissions were sealed. I bought the car used in 05 and it was certified, was this rust problem around when I bought it or did it occur since I owned it. The car had 38,000 miles on it when I bought it.
How can water get into the transmission.
