I agree that this is not an urgent repair unless the leak becomes quite severe. As Larry pointed out, if you had a manny-tranny, thent he seal should be done right away to keep from oil soaking the clutch, but since you have an automatic, that is not an issue.

One of my 190E's had the rear main seal start weeping at about 180K and didn't get changed until the tranny came out for a rebuild at 400K.
