    you need to replace all of the all of them or they will all leak over time i think there are 12 dont go to mercedes they will charge you $5k. There are many private shops that can do it. I just had my 2001 sl 500 done for $1000.

    Very easy to replace seals on hydrolic actuator. There are several videos on you tube that will show you step by step instructions. I have already did 6 of them. Takes about an hour and costs about 50$ for kit at mbseals.com. Good luck!
