W202 rear suspension puzzle

Hi all,

Went to change my rear shocks today after noticing a small oil puddle which looked like tranny fluid under the spring/shock area.

When I took the wheel off I saw this:



I immediatley checked inside the boot (trunk) to see if anything had leaked through but nothing that I could see, my other thoughts were that this is oil filled?

Any ideas

Thanks,

David

most mercedes bushings are filled with oil. The rear subframe bushing in your 202 could be oil filled and possibly leaking. I know all engine mounts and most control arm bushings are oil filled.
