Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

Mercedes Benz doesn't recommend any type of flushing or additives normally but I have used Slick 50 on quite a few with good results.

I have the fluid specs in a PDF format, at the following links. You can copy and paste it into a new browser and rate the answer on this page.
