MB recommends modifying the conductor plate to eliminate this particular leak. The valve body must be removed and partially dis-assembled. A small bit of plastic is removed at the area of one of the solenoids on the conductor plate. Your dealer has probably already done this though. I've also found that when re-installing the valve body, it helps to make sure it's as far rearward as it will go. This allows the coupler with the O-rings to fit a bit tighter against the sealing surface. The valve body wiil only move back and forth about 2mm, but before the modified seals were available, and before MB came out with the conductor plate modification, this fixed all but the most stubborn leaks. Good luck
