This is a 1997 Mercedes SL600 V 12 engine. The power steering ADS reservoir started pissing out oil from the small pin hole on the reservoir cap.. I shut the engine off and oil all over the engine now but the reservoir is full to the top. How do you bleed the ADS. There is some restriction causing this to overflow.
Attempted to lower soft top. The rear section retracted and then just fell back down and nothing. It clicks when I try again.
Does this model have two fluid tanks. The front one is full. At least one of the cylinders has leaked. The one that raises the cover where the top is stored.
Now car will not level out to be able to drive. Front end is dragging the ground and rear end is up fully extended.
would it be fuses? or something else?
I need to remove the tcm and not sure which one it is. is it the A0215452232?
