I had the same thing happen to my 2006, 2500. It wasn't the pan leaking, it was the O ring that goes to the electrical connection in front of the pan & on the passenger side. Once the dealer replaced the O ring the pan has remained dry. This warranty work took less than an hour for them to do.
I believe that this was a problem caused at re-assembly, IMHO.

I had the same O ring leak. I changed my own, took about 15 min. I don't think it was from reassembly because I have a 2004 140 2500 passenger model and they come complete from Germany. :D

I purchased the O rings from Steve at:
www.europarts-sd.com (http://www.europarts-sd.com) Part # are on his sight.

It was easy, just turn a lock ring with your fingers to remove the plug then use a 7mm (I think) nut driver to remove the socket. I think there is a write up about it some were on this sight, try a search. Also ask Steve at europarts, very knowledgeable about Sprinters. :thumbup:
