The 722.6 box was originally sold as a "lifetime" seal unit, but if i recall correctly that was amended. Regardless--at the cost of a new transmission, i'd have it serviced.

If you do a search you'll find scores if not hundreds of threads discussing this very issue. For a great FAQ thread look in the W210 forum stickies, it's the same transmission.

But no, you don't "need" to change the fluid. After all, they will do that when they replace the transmission.
