300 E transmission leak
I have an opportunity to purchase an 86 300E with 145K. The car runs well but it has a transmission leak. As I was scanning through my CD version of the repair manuals for the car, I couldn't find anything about R&R of the transmission. Am I missing something? Has anybody used this CD that has some insight? According to some of the other issues posted about this problem, it will likely to be necessary to remove the transmission to replace the seal (between the engine and the transmission). Has anyone attempted this....if so how big of a job is it? Are special tools required? If I should choose to take it to a local MB mechanic, how much would I expect to pay for the seal replacement?
Thanks in advance for your help.
