RE: Need help with oil leak/ 89 300E
Ike is right, when I got my 90 300E it was seeping there. I think it was an o-ring or gasket or both. That was 5 years ago so forgive my vagueness.
It is a known failure on older W124s.
At 50 miles per quart I would jump on it. That much oil accumulating in the wrong spots could lead to other issues. JMHO
