E300 transmission wire plug adapter leak

MBSTARs said

Add one more parts to you list 140 270 02 50 is wire plug adapter on right side of the transmission (because adapter always leaks fluid)

I have had the adapter seal replaced 3 times in 56,000 in my 1999 E300. So whats the deal with this. I am getting a little tired of seeing this car in the shop.
I have changed dealers and hopefully will see a change, but is this is on the forum I'm sure its out there bieng a pain to everyone.
Could one of the techs on the forum address this. What is Mercedes doing about the frequency of this problem.

Or is it just me!!!!
