SLK200 Kompressor R171 year 2005, Cam Shaft Magnets Oil leak
I have noticed Oil leak around the Cam Shaft magnets (noticed by myself without having the engine light ON), where oil was also on the plastic connectors.
My mechanic unplugged the connectors, saying we need to change the magnets.
ques 1: do i have to change the whole magnet or just the O ring rubber seal (logically old seals cause leaks)
ques 2: after/if I change the magnets, should I also change the plastic connectors that have oil on them?
ques 3: If I do not change nothing, and just clean the connectors and keep them plugged, but i bring the cables up in a way to prevent a leak inside the harness which may result with the oil getting to the computer, would it solve the issue?
ques 4: Does oil leak inside the electrical cable itself? or it may just leak inside the outside black harness to get to the computer?
