I got a 2004 Sl500 with 66k miles and I have a few questions. I’m going to flush my ABC fluid Sunday and my valve blocks need rebuilt as it sinks after two days and drops after running for thirty minutes. I want to know if I can flush the fluid for now and wait till the spring to change the valve block seals without hurting anything as I don’t have a climate controlled garage.
Also, I scratched my driver side door in a parking garage, how easy would it be to transfer everything to a replacement door shell from eBay?

You may actually find that doing an ABC fluid change along with several "rodeos" may help your sagging. Trash in the valve block seals can cause sagging, and the new fluid and rodeo can help clear that debris.

If the door comes with the window glass and regulator, it's not that much work. If not, you'll have to do some drilling and riveting.
