you probably have a leak for sure , the pump has a screw about half way up the reservoir and you need zf grade oil from Mercedes Benz or factory recommended brand like Fuchs also a syringe with a long tube and fill it to line and operate it a few times and make sure the air is all out,no bubbles ,try to repair it soon as possible the pump will fail if to much air is getting in

i think a lock smith should not do this repair,nothing against lock smiths ,it not an everyday lock and it may need to be carefully cut out , ,it could be one of three things ,#1 key #2 tumbler # the complete cylinder ,if the key does not get to a certain position than the steering lock needs to be cut out ,it should be 2 hours labor plus parts for a complete set up

first line of diagnosis is to have multiple keys ,test each key for a day ,or unless it happens right away ,then probably want to take it in and narrow it down to an EIS electronic ignition switch ,or it could just be low voltage in the vehicle , hope this helps

This setup is only for leveling ,if you don't have a warning message in the cluster than it is operating correctly ,just put alot of weight in the rear and listen for the compressor to actuate ,one other thing ,if it is sitting really low in the rear than it has a leak ,

Service B for your model is very involved as per the factory service inspection sheet , this is just some of the areas covered and i recommend to have it done from a dealer for sure ,oil and filter ,cabin air filter ,some dealers include wipers ,remove wheels rotate if needed ,inspect front and rear brake pads and measure the rotor thickness , inspect all suspension and under carriage ,if this is your first b service i am pretty sure front brake pads are getting close to the wear limit sensor ,clean and lube moon roof rail guides , at 39,000 you will need to do a transmission service to keep your warranty of the transmission if there where any issues down the road ,well there is so many other things involved i could not even mention ,Mercedes-Benz is on top of it for service and has a reputation so hope this helps you ,
