The diff is leaking on the head connecting to the flex disc, Is the leaking caused by the seal? What is the seal called? and part number?
yes, I will do the same as you suggested. Winter is here, no fun to get under the car now.I'd have to agree with drop. The old mercs WILL have leaks. Rubber cracks in it's old age. I'd recommend keeping an eye on the oil level in the diff. Open the filler nut. The oil should be up around that level. Check it now and again and as long as the leak isn't that bad, I don't think I'd recommend tearing into it. I hear it's a bit of a job..
WOW thats a PITA. The heck with that, just top off the diff for the life of the car!Have a good time.
you're not the first person to voice that opinion I loved it, but don't worry, the many oil leaks on that car made sure it was liberally coated with black oil within a couple thousand miles!think i would have still gone with black.
