OM617 on W115 1975 crankshaft seal
My Mercedes is leaking oil in the front. Mechanic checked it and it appears that the seal on crankshaft isn't good anymore. Dealership told me that those seals were discontinued. I found a aftermarket one (advance auto parts) but they can't order one for me before I tell them what type of crankshaft is there (elring, rince and miyali(?) are their options. Dealership told me that OM617 had only one type of crankshaft and those three names didn't sound familiar at all to them. Did anyone had the same experience? Any advices ladies and gentlemen?
