Hi All, I have a 2003 SL55 based BRABUS, I had left my car in the garage for about a week and when Idid take it out fromthe garage I noticed a small amout of oil on the floor, (AAAAAAGGGHHH) so It took it to my local garage to put it up on the ramp, upon viewing the underneath I noticed that directly under the engine was completely dry but under the gearbox was signs of an oil leak but there was no obvious sign of where It is coming from even after removing the undertray, after doing so, the gearbox sump tray was visable and was also damp with oil, not sure if what type of oil it was but it seemed to be green in colour. any ideas???

Should just be the pilot bush on the gearbox, common for your box, and easy job

Hi Television, can you tell me where the pilot bush is located on my car, you have mentioned that it's easy therefore I was thinking of getting getting my local garage to change it for me!
