SL5000 convertible oil leaks at sun visor.
Hello! A new member and 1st time owner of Mercedes-Benz: 1996 SL500.
I noticed a recent problem. Oil is leaking from the molding at the right side sun visor mount. Is the convertible/hardtop locking mechanish hydraulic? I cannot imagine, otherwise, what could produce such a leak.
I have removed the sun visor & do not see any obvious source for an oil leak. It appears that when I operate the top release mechanism that the leak presents itself. From the smell, it smells like 3-in-one-oil and is a very clear and low viscosity oil.
Any help here? Thanks
