We have 13,600 miles on our 2005 300C. Absolutely no issues until last Friday and we had what apprears to be a transmission fluid leak. Over the weekend it looks like about 4 oz. of fluid leaked out. Looks like it leaks overnight as short term stops don't appear to leak.

Took it to the dealer today to get diagnosis in the morning.

Just wondered if anyone else has seen a similar problem?

my brothers transmission has developed a leak as well.

i was pissed to find out i couldnt check a dip stick to see how much fluid leaked, or to re-fill it.

Mine did it around 12k miles...O-ring TSB. Easy fix and it wasn't down much if any at all.

ONE QUESTION; are you sure it's the transmission? Just could be the power steering. Just a thought; check and see where the location is in relationship to the lines.

Yes, had mine in the shop about 2 weeks ago to have o-rings replaced. I had 11k miles on mine at the time. Stopped leak but makes me wonder why they failed so soon.

Just out of curiousity, have any of you with leaks had the TSB done for the transmission shudder (the drain/refill/x3 procedure) prior to the leakage?

Tranny Leak

Mine started leaking at about 11,000 miles. TSB changed out the o-ring, done. As they have them in stock, and so many people are chiming in saying theirs leaks, it's probably a case of when not if it will leak.
