Hydraulic fluid top up for the R170 SLK 200

Good day everyone,

I recently bought a hydraulic fluid from Mercedes Benz to top up for my R170 roof pump as it is close to the low mark. Anyone who has a video on how to do this as I wanted to learn to do it myself.

I've topped ours off when working on the hydraulic cylinders. No video, but with the trunk panels removed, there is an obvious filler hole in the top of the pump that you remove with an Allen wrench. Be careful not to drop the small washer that's underneath. Either with a very small funnel, or with an injector such as this,

Robot Check

Top off the system.
