Just keeps gettin' better--now that the dealer has fixed? the oil leak at the head gasket (last week), it still has a steady leak. Upon the return visit, they say that now they've removed the pans, cleaned off the area and the rea seal is leaky. At 64k. After I just took the car in for "oil leaks", and they billed mercedes $1420 for the job(in fairness, they repaired all but $500 under goodwill warranty). How much is fair labor for leaky rear seal on these cars? I'd much rather my independent do it, who I trust, but I feel the MB store owes me a little responsibility. Who wouldn't clean up the pans to check for oil leaks, and how much labor would I have saved on just one job? Help! thanks.

The job pays roughly 7 to 8 hours or so and you will multiply that times the labor rate. The job is almost all labor and has only one or two parts. (Seals) The tranny will have to come out to do the rear main oil seal.

It's rare that the "rear main" seal leaks on this engine model. The Headgasket is somewhat more common of a leak. I'd get a second opinion on the leak.
