7 speed auto box oil change

Has anyone undertaken changing the gearbox oil themselves and if so was it a straight forward job including changing the filter. The car has now covered 41k with no evidence of this oil change being carried out. So far I have no problems with the gearbox after 3k miles of ownership. Car is a 2005 350.

Here is some info; https://www.slkworld.com/diy-section/...tml#post231033

For your peace of mind, have an MB dealer(or independent) run an SDS diagnostic on the trans, just to be sure there are no faults.

There ARE many posts in threads on SLKW concerning the 722.9 AT.

And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!
