Does anyone know the MB number for the upper turbo oil line, and to make it more difficult: it's '85 Californian version. (so it's not A 617 180 09 27)
Mine has a small hole in it. For now I stop the leak, but I'd better be sure.
Thanks

I wouldn't bother replacing the whole thing unless it is really disintegrating, jsut clean off real well and use JB weld to repair, else you better order the upper and lower o-rings/gaskets that fit on the tube along with a new oil pan gasket as you will ahve to remove that as well to replace the tube and its seals, oh yeah and the gasket that links to the manifold, as you need to remove that as well to get at it, I thingk, did the o-rings a while ago on mine to stop the leaks from the old gaskets. Actually it is a lot easier to di this on a CA model than another turbo model whcih requires you to loosen up the turbo and exhaust manifold as well to get at everything.

Are you talking about the one that goes from the turbo to the the oil filter housing? If so I see them all the time at pick your part.
