RE: Leaking oil seals at front of camshafts - please help
S Class, I can sympathize with you. I too have a leak at that same location (but on my six cylinder inline). Currently, I am having the transmission rebuilt but as soon as that is done, I'll have to tackle that oil leak. Our friends at Mercedes told me that it would cost more than $2,200.00 to repair but I'm certain that there has to be another way. The fellow installing the transmission may be able to fix it for much less.
I wish that I knew more about it - I'd be more than happy to help.
BTW, have you thought of writing directly to some of the more knowledgeable people in this forum by clicking directly on their names? (in case they just don't happen to read your post).
Wishing you well,
