W126 - 1991 300-SEL

Ran into a bit of bad luck yesterday doing something I've done many times - changing/refilling differential fluid.
Small, soft plastic end-piece on refill hose fell off into differential. I suspect it's laying in the bottom.

CD-Rom shows no gasket between end cover and rear axle housing. Instructions say to use a sealant compound. Is there one in particular that stands above all others? Thanks for your time.

James Madison - Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.

On an nonMB transmission, I had good luck with Permatex Blue RTV. Every car parts store has a label for it on the shelf, few ever have it in stock.
