I have a 2007 Mercedes B 180 Auto
I am told it requires a replacement Torque converter.
What is a realistic cost to replace including labour and VAT.

Depending on labour rate I would say you are looking at around £2000 or so.

It is around 10-11 hours labour (engine & transmission need dropping out complete & then the gearbox taking off to access) & working from memory I believe a new torque converter from Mercedes is around £900.

A Mercedes specialist may be a little cheaper than a dealer & there is also the option of having your unit rebuilt by specialist companies which will also save quite a bit over a new unit.

Let me know if you need anything else.
