    Call your local Napa Autoparts store and ask the counter person which fluid, and you can find the number here www.napaonline.com

    I went to Kragen today they did not know, the year of the care seemed to be the issue. I called Mercedes Benz new dealership they were not at all helpful, unless they ar ethe ones doing the repairs- that is Kearny Mesa Mercedes parts department.

    It is not like I haven't doen the footwaord,
    The reason I cam here is to get a definitve answer from someone who has a Mercedes-
