Car Information:
Mercedes Benz 240D
Year: 1982
Engine Size: 2.4
Trans: Automatic

Issue/Question:
The car runs OK, but leaks a lot of oil. It seems to be coming from the rear of the engine. I’m thinking its probably the rear main seal. Can this be replaced on this car without removing the engine?

I have a researched a little about the car online & what I have read from there seems to indicate that’s the only way to do it. Thanks.

Answer:
Its easier to do it by pulling the transmission!
