Help - Info Pls 240D leaks

I just paid for a front seal (crankshaft seal) that was supposedly the reason for an oil leak. I also had the rear window external seal (rubber gasket) replaced to stop a leak into the trunk. As for the
oil leak, I wiped the oil off the oil pan, placed a cloth on the ground under it and checked it the next day: results= no oil leaked onto the cloth. I asked about this. The mechanic said that it was a slow leak and would take a while for it to drip off the oil pan. The car had been sitting for a week. I went out and sure enough there was a drop of oil on the oil pan again. I wiped it off and drove the car about 12 miles. I parked it. I placed a clean cloth under the oil pan. This morning, the oil leak was just like before - as though nothing had been done at all. Indeed, I am not a happy camper. How long does it take to replace a crankshaft seal on an '83 240D? Relatively quick? Give me an estimate for an experienced mechanic.
All the work is a big NO GO! He is closed today, but the first thing Monday morning I am calling him (mechanic) to inform him that after all the work and dollars, there's no change! I still have the oil leak (oil pan gasket? if so, why didn't he fix it?)??? The water leak into the trunk is still there. Water is coming in somewhere near the back seat. The carpet on the passenger's side (rear floor) is wet! Where is the water coming from? Perhaps only the MB dealer can find the problem? Any suggestions? Comments? Remarks? TIA

Time for a new mechanic, and, possibly a lawyer.
