170 oil pan removal

I thought I found an oil leak coming from the front crank seal, I changed out the oil and found that was not it. Looks like the oil pan seal is the only thing left I can see that could be leaking.
Has anyone dropped the oil pan and changed the pan seal on a 1998 SLK230?
Please help
Thanks
Earl

Hi Earl,

Why don't you clean off the undercarriage of the car and see where the leak is coming from first?

9 times out of 10 its the crank seal that appears to be coming from the pan seal. The only way to replace the pan seal is to disconnect the motor mounts and jack the engine up.
