Transmission leakage

Probably time for me to begin thinking about getting the transmission seals replaced. It's been seeping for years now but I've just kept up wi proper levels and have kept it going. I don't have the facilities to do this work myself anymore so am trying to get an idea of possible costs to replace front and rear transmission seals and engine rear main seal. Again, just trying to get a ballpark if someone has recent experience.

Didn't get any hits on this so thought I would float it to the top one more time. Just trying to get some ballpark figures on what peeps have paid in the past... TIA

Had the tranny pulled from my 88 560SL last year to repair a leaking seal. All seals, plugs and bushings replaced at a local independent transmission shop. Cost just shy of $1500.

You can't buy happiness but you can buy a 107... and that's kind of the same thing. Remember that your car is supposed to be your therapy, not the reason you need therapy.

Thanks for the replies. I think this will be slated for late summer. It would be nice to get this sucker leak free for a change.
