I do not know a lot about Mercedes but some of the hydraulic suspensions are powered of the power steering pump. They use a special fluid. There is a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect....
