This information is readily available on line. I just wasted $31.00 to read what I have already read.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ha! On top of the 31 dollars you want me to pay you more? What a joke.
Mercedes Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

Then what kind of answer were you hoping for?

This is the way to locate the drain regardless how you get the information.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep

Our goal here is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. We may not always
have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but our job is to get you on
the right track, which we always do. We can’t hear, see, smell or
touch your vehicle from where we’re at, so your understanding of
that is greatly appreciated. There are no magical or miraculous
answers, but we do our best to guide you in the right direction.
Thanks, Ron

star rating now and I will still assist you after you have rated me
too if another question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you
until you rate me.
Thanks again, Ron
