I thought my pan was dented in a bit so I ordered a new one, which was identical. Apparently Mercedes designed it to be a little higher in the middle, perhaps to keep any chunks off to the side?

Yes my pan wasn't really dented either. I had just thought it was from looking at it. It did have some rust on one spot though. I'll have to grab a picture before i throw it out..

Gah. I hate pans and pan gaskets. Everytime I somehow manage to screw it up and it leaks.

I over torqued my one 300SD's tranny pan.. Needed a new one and gasket.
My other 300SD leaks a little
and now..

the 420SEL, which I just finished up last night with new pan, victorreinz gasket, proper torque spec, and two gallons of rotella t6... I even used acetone on the metal to clean it up before putting the pan up! oh looks it leaks!

Well heres what I've got as options:

1) Kick it to my indy.

2) Drain the pan, save the oil in a nice clean bucket, try again with new gasket?

3) Drain the pan, save the oil, RTV gasket sealer on the current gasket and torque again...

What do you guys think?

I just ordered a 1/4" drive torque wrench and adapting sockets so I can actually get the 10Nm. I was using a 3/8" drive one where 10Nm was just below its range. This 1/4" drive one goes down to 1Nm.
