wow only half liter on transfer case.

yes, in fact i think there is only 1 fill plug that you have to siphon the fluid out of, i dont have a fluid change document, ill have to look at some pictures.

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

ok i can see 2 plugs on this one.

drain from lower one and fill with upper one.

should be a few inches from each other.
