transmission leak

Hi again,<br>I have a very small amount of transmission fluid leakage from my 560sl. How concerned should I be. The parts to fix are only $20 but the labor is 13 billable hours(so they say?).<br>

Leak

I replaced the transmission filter and fluid (includes new gaskets)at a German specialist, the filter kit is $70, labor was less than 1 hour, I watched them do it, it's simple. The added benefit is that you clean up all the metal shavings in your tranny, runns better - lasts longer.

Trans Filter

Was that a typo, or did you really pay $70 for a transnmission filter kit? It should have cost closer to $15-$20... In any case, I doubt that the filter has anything to do with the leak in this case.
