I just had to deal with a leaking front seal a couple of weeks ago. The long and short of it was, after taking it to a couple of tranny shops,I took it to the local MB dealer.

All the Trans shops wanted to replace the trans and wouldn't give any warranty or guarantee it wouldn't leak again.

The dealer however,recommended to simply re-seal the trans. Not only did they fix it for a third the price of a rebuilt one,they warrant their parts for one year.

The important key to their recommendation to re-seal it was that it was shifting perfectly. I would think that would apply in your case as well.

Sometimes, it's better to take it to a dealer or factory trained specialist.
