Q: 1998 mercedes benz c280 transmission fluid leak from top

asked by on

Involving my 1998 mercedes-benz c280 vehicle. Went into limp mode and have a Transmission fluid leak, I checked under the hood and it was a leaking from the top of the transmission under the hood from around this cap on top. It would be the part of the transmission closest to the steering wheel but on the top of the transmission.I do not know what the cap or cover is called but I tried to take it off and I broke it.It is not the transmission fluid cap but a different cap in the location of the transmission that Ive just previously described. I am looking for an answer to what the cap or cover or seal is called so I may order the piece properly. I have a picture of it as well if I can send it through here.Thank You
