Reseal W123 manual heater control valve

Has anyone resealed the W123 manual heater control valve? Mine is leaking on me.

Time to take it or a spare one, apart and see ~ if it has O-Rings they're usually fairly simple to get and replace.....

I can't see any fasteners holding it together. I think it's ultrasonically welded at assembly = a 'lifetime part'.

Why bother resealing? The part is pretty cheap. Only about 40 or 50 bucks. 1238302084.

Question WHY ?

.....Because for some, $40 is a fair bit of money, food on the table, lights on and all that .

Sometimes you have more dollars than hours, and sometimes more hours than dollars. If an O-ring would make the puddle go away in a couple hours, I surely would.
