Oversized B2/BR Regulator Valve Kit

Part No. 88740-04K

  • Valve
  • Spring

Complaint:

  • 4-5 Flare
  • 4-5 Harsh
  • Delayed Forward & Reverse
  • Harsh engagement

Cause:

B2/BR bore wear allows critical pressure breach that prevents normal clutch control.


Correction:

Recover hydraulic control and renew Forward and Reverse operation by reconditioning the bore and installing Sonnax oversized B2/BR regulator valve kit.

The B2 clutch in Mercedes 722.9 transmissions is applied in first through fourth gears, and the BR clutch is used during Reverse operation. The B2/BR regulator valve controls the apply rate for these clutches. Bore wear at the B2/BR regulator valve allows pressure loss that affects clutch apply timing, resulting in harsh engagement, delayed Forward and Reverse, flares, and harsh 4-5 shifts. Reconditioning the bore and installing Sonnax oversized B2/BR regulator valve kit 88740-04K renews critical clearances to restore normal Forward and Reverse operation.

  • Hardcoat anodized aluminum valve combats premature wear
  • Annular grooves help center valve in bore to reduce future side-load wear
  • Lengthened critical spool provides added stability and wear prevention
