please excuse the previous experts answer.
not to worry a/c is a/c really even on a mercedes, at least as far as recharging is concerned.

ok start walking me thru the process
Mercedes Mechanic: Auto Psychic, Mercedes Technician replied 7 years ago
you'll need a set of a/c pressure guages and a can of r134 from autozone or the like.
about $80.
connect the red hose to the red capped fitting (high prressure side).
the blue to the blue (low pressure side).
connect the yellow hose to the freon can.
start the vehicle and turn on the a/c.
open the valve on the freon can and the valve on the blue side of the guages.
you may need to rev the car up a bit.
watch the red (high side) pressure, if it gets to 275 before the freon can is empty, close all the valves.
your done.
let me know how it goes.
