Mine was described as "valve cover breather" both right and left leak oil. Didn't trust the dealership, Barrier (after ongoing failed steering fluid leak repairs) so I went to their ex-employees at Mercedes Garage. They replaces L&R valve cover gaskets, rebuilt upper chambers, replaced breather hoses."
