Hi me again
My 500sl has a drip or two on the power steering box exactly where the steering spline goes into it.
I have tried an addititive which appears to have slowed this down but it still is still leaking.Can anyone help me here?
Do I need to remove this and change the oil seals etc.

Any ideas please?

Peter

Have you looked at the price of a recon box. Not sure on MB's but when i've stripped boxes in the past the shaft has also been worn and fitting a new seal is only a short term fix.
