In many luxury vehicles from various manufacturers like BMW and Mercedes Benz, there are electronic control units installed and mounted in the actual transmission itself. With a more and more frequent fail rate, it is becoming imperative to find the proper mechanics and body shops that are able to order any replacement parts that are needed.
Typically tied into issues with the speed sensor itself, these failing control units are a hassle because the speed sensor is not replaceable on its’ own and rather requires the entire conductor plate to be replaced. Early models that utilize this method require the entire unit to be completely replaced while newer ones fortunately can be fixed by simply replacing either the control unit assembly on its’ own or by switching out the faulty conductor plate.
What makes finding a mechanic that can perform these tasks however is the increasing difficulty in securing replacement parts. Manufacturers like BMW, Mercedes and Porsche are no longer selling replacement valve bodies or conductor plate units unless the shop trying to purchase them has obtained a federal license.
Typically any transmission work is perceived to be extensive and expensive, oftentimes requiring drivers to purchase complete replacements should something be damaged beyond repair or an intricate piece be impossible to replace on its’ own.
