This is a 1998 c230, it has small leak at the axle seal.How much of a job to fix, or suggestion as to how bad it has to be before you tare into it.
thanks

Does it drip on the ground, or is it just weeping?

There should be fill plug where you can check the level. As long as you keep the level up, it's not a problem.
