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.
