Hello my name is***** is no big deal to add. Make sure you get the full synthetic dexron Mercon 6 fluid. You will also need the Mercedes Benz dipstick to make sure level is correct as the Mercedes does not come with a dipstick. Or you can make one. Here is a link to make a stick out of mechanics wire or something similar.

The reading between the bot***** *****ne and bottom of stick is 10mm. From bot***** *****nes it is 10mm-24mm and the top lines are 54mm to 64 mm. I will double check that also as I had this made for another customer. Hope this information helps Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future. If you feel I have not been helpful please DO NOT RATE BAD OR POOR AND WASTE YOUR MONEY , I will opt out to see if another expert can provide more or better assistance so you're not wasting your money!!. Thanks for choosing just answer. Lou. also , if you feel i deserve one , BONUSES are GREATLY APPRECIATED ! 😉
