Exclamation Check your transmission cooling lines for chaffing

Just a heads up to everyone, check your metal trans. cooling lines. On both sides of the oil pan there is a clamp with a rubber grommet that holds the cooling in place. Well, on my TD one of the grommets had become hard a britle and fell apart, thereby allowing the clamp and line to rub against each other. This of course lead to a leak. So for all those out there that have an "older" Benz, check those grommets.
