Hi, there is no transmission dipstick on your Mercedes. You need the special Mercedes dipstick tool to check the fluid with. The tool can be purchased from the dealer for around $45. There is a tube at the right rear of the motor to insert the tool. Insert it until it bottoms out in the pan and then withdraw it and check the reading with the engine at operating temperature. Let me know if you have any questions.
