Your ABS system is telling you there is a problem with your brakes somewhere. The right front tire has a flexible line connected to the caliper and the metal brake line. If the leak is as close to the tire as you say, I would inspect this line for a cut or break in it and then replace.

Sorry about that. On the right side under bonnet there is a black tank with a dip stick on it pull the dip stick,fill abc oil which can only be bought from MB,it will probly take a litre and half after filling oil, work suspension up and down switch for oil to recirculate in system,check level on normal slope.

How do you check a fluid level in the ABC ? Engine running or not
