check the engine numbers if its the same engine then there is a good chance the box will fit but to be on the safe side check the gearbox number if that matchs then theres no problem yates210456

Everything on this vehicle is vacuum operated. going into the vehicle at the left rear of engine compartment there are color coded vac. lines-green a/c,yellow central locking,black shutoff diaphragm, clear source, yellow w/red stripe reservoir. any one of these could be a potential leak of vac. On diesel engines they have too high of compression to produce vac. so M.B. put a vac. pump on the front of the engine which is driven by your camshaft. Usually engine vac. changes rapidly with throttle position but because this vac. is not as easily controlled there is a separate control valve called a aneroid compensator that meters the vac. to your modulator on your transmission. It can be adjusted but it requires a special tool( basically it is a dial wheel that fits onto the post of the compensater). I would first make sure your rubber grommet is not torn on your modulator valve. If it is it will need to be replaced. If you remove that grommet you will see a metal plunger which can be grabbed with needle nose pliers and rotated to the left or right. I believe right is a firmer shift and left is a softer shift. stat by rotating approx. 1/2 turn to the left and see how the shifting feels. My first suggestion is to unplug the green and yellow vac. lines and see if the trans. shifts better. On your valve cover is a lever labeled off in case you lose vac. to the shutoff diaphragm. Become familiar with that lever so you can shutoff your engine in case you accidentally unplug the shutoff valve. you will probably find either your central locking or a/c system is the root of the problem.

Follow the line and see were it leads to if possible. Also I will need to know the composition of this hose and size

If this is out ot the top of the tranny,it is a vent line ,for fluid expansion or when you add fluid ,as long as it is not plugged up ,it's fine
