You won't believe what happened.....I called all the Dealers between Cleveland and Pittsburgh...they were all either closed or did not have them..... However, a local Ex Head Mercedes Tech who opened his own shop years ago not only had them, but did not even charge me for them!!!!! If he is trying to get my future Benz repair business...it worked!!
I put the new ends on the oil filler tube and put everything back together again and the tapping is gone along with the oil leak. So I went to a show and a cruise today.....
