Servicing a Sprinter gearbox

Asked by Jack Miller

I have purchased a 2002 Mercedes Sprinter 316 CDI van with a six-speed Sprintshift gearbox. As I can't find any way to check the oil level in the gearbox I was wondering if they were sealed for life, or is there any way of having the gearbox serviced?

The Sprintshift gearbox is like a normal manual gearbox with an automated shift mechanism attached to perform the cog swapping. You need to think of it like a manual gearbox, but in the case of the Sprintshift there is oil in the shift itself. Most 'Benz service specialists recommend changing the oil every 100,000 km.
