Hi
Any ideas where I can purchase an oil seal kit for a steering box for a mercedes 500sl 1982 without going to a main dealer.
I only need one oil seal which is proving to be a pain size to get.
that is 33mm o/d 21mm shaft and 8mm thick

regards

Peter

you can get a seal by getting the number off it and find a supplyer on the net or purchase a full seal kit from mercs, not a lot of money and not worth the hassle tracing one down.

Many thanks for your reply
I have contacted mercedes and they said I needed two different kits to complete the total overhaul of oil seals and o rings. These were coming at a costing of £45.00 each plus V.A.T.
Since speaking to them I have managed to get most of the seals all but one. So I guess all I need now would be one of these kits which will have this seal in it.
I have the seal out reading the seal number is virtually impossible.

I guess you are referring to the input shaft seal (the small blue seal on the pic below)
Unfortunately MB do not sell them separately from the repair kit at the price you quoted. The kit can be had in Germany for around £25 and if you do a search on ebay Germany for "Mercedes kenkgetriebe" you may find several kits there.
Alternatively drop an email to Brendan of Wunderpartz and he might be able to obtain either a seal or a kit.
