The torque applied in the course of reassembly after installing the new seal is critical. A plumber posing as a Mercedes technician in an independent shop once replaced the seal in my differential and 400 miles later the differential was toast.

It is my opinion that unless you have the proper special tools and the MB shop manual spelling out each step, it would not be a good idea to DIY. Differentials are expensive- -I know.

Good luck.
