Greetings,

I tracked a slight oil leak to the Cam Servo Magnet on my 1990 300CE. I seems to be leaking slightly from either around the Servo or from the electric connector.

Its hard to tell from the diagrams, is the leak caused by a bad internal seal of the Servo, or is it from the seal/cover that is located just behind the front timing cover. I don't mind spending the money on the parts, but I want to make sure I am getting the right parts.

Hopefully one of the MB guru's on here can give me some insight on this.

Thanks!

It is sealed from leakage out of the electrical connector. It is leaking between the acuator and the cover. You can take out the 5mm allen bolts and clean the surfaces. Apply a small film of Hylomar or equiv. to both surfaces and reassemble.
We use the factory sealant for this, but most do not have access to this $15 dollar tube of sealer. The Hylomar will work fine.
