MB W203 Oil in vacuum pump

Question by dman776 posted 4 months ago in 2001-2007 (W203)

I noticed an oil leak apparently coming form my vacuum pump.  I replaced the vacuum pump, but, when I opened the old pump, there was oil inside the pump.   Is this normal?   Was the car overfilled with oil? 

It looks like it's still leaking. 

Should I replace the oil separator (and cover) (on rear left) and on right valve cover?

suggestions?
