Hi Guys, my 2006 ML 320 CDi had a very unpleasant habit of changing into first when slowing down, and with a bump! Having a W460 and all the propshaft issues etc my mind started thinking about driveshaft play, diff play mountings and cv joint play, as it gives a nasty bump and clunk when coming to a stop.
Anyway as part of a service ( I do all the serviceable stuff myself) I booked it in at MB for a full diagnostics report and software update. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a update for the gearbox controller, which has completely resolved my issue with downshifting. The rest of the results came back 100% too, injectors, fuel pressures etc.
They did all this for an hours labor.

Hope someone else can benefit from a software update too!


Cheers
