Pull the Trans. It's probably the rear main seal.

^^^ listen to Rocman he knows his stuff

to drop trans just look up info on removal of most any 722.6 process is mostly the same as your 722.9

remove exhaust (one side may only be needed to removed)

remove bolts from donut shaped bushing with 8 bolts to free up drive shaft
(on w211 i removed the whole driveshaft then found out I did not have to)

support rear of trans, undo trans mount

put trans lift under trans

remove 6 fly wheel bolts


remove bolts from around the bell housing

grab a hold and pull and gently pry trans away from motor

sure there are more steps or a specific order but that's about the way I did it from memories

then reverse to reinstall

6-8 total hours depending on skill and weather it is on a lift or jacks in a garage

***Chime in Seniors/Techs if I am wrong as I am merely assuming the w212 is the same-ish as the w211***
