I have noticed an oil leak around the power steering pump? Any ideas where its exactly coming from as i can't really pin point the leak. It might be washers or seals any part no's would help

I cleaned it up with some de greaser and the oil has appeared again

Will try and post a pic when i get a chance

Oil Cooler Seal Replacement - How-to

There's an old but excellent how-to thread on MBWorld from nitrogenbalance with pictures on this subject. Have a look at Leaking Oil Cooler - MBWorld.org Forums I think it has the part numbers listed.

From what Nitro' says, the seals are v expensive in the US - be interesting to see what Olly paid down south....

Are you sure?

There is a little plate just below it on the front cover, they can leak too.
