anyone ever replace the oil pan gasket on a 560SL?

I was quoted a cost of 16 hours of labor just to get to the oil pan gasket on a 1987 560SL which has some oil seepage.

Was wondering if that's a realistic time estimate?

never done one before, just wondering if others in this forum had the pleasure.

SL OIL LEAK

DOM;
16 hours seems a little high but it is a lot of work.
The front suspension has to come off and the a/c compressor and smog pump have to come off just to remove the pan.
Unless you have a hoist at home this is probably not a do it yourself job.

thanks for your reply, definitely not a DIY job!

guess I will have to start saving up for the cost of this job next year.
