Customer Question
Hi, I've got a...

Hi, I've got a crane with a g240-16 gearbox in, has very complicated clutch system in, was wondering if I could pipe clutch pedal master cylinder straight to clutch booster to get a good clutch on the pedal? And would ecu and gear selector still work just as a manual box?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

Not slipping just either going to neutral on a gear change or being stuck in a gear and not changing up/down or going back to neutral

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '16 Mercedes?

G240-16

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

We are now, had grove cranes out yesterday with mini diag 2 and no joy...and the mechanic was in constant comma with merc tech at Milton keenes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, just if the pipe idea would work cheers
