Hello All,
First thing first!
English is not my mother's language.
Nor second, nor third.
However, since 1999 is my "second" language.

81 stands for my birth year.

My first MB since Monday - 1998 SLK 230K, RFD as per UK standards. And yes it has issues.
My last vehicle was Accord 1996 made on the island - the biggest chassis made in Europe, LFD for the EU market!

The many issues I have seen so far will be clarified and "aligned" soon.
Already downloaded few manuals, but not for 1998, as I couldn't find any. SO, if you have a link 1998 SLK 230K related, please feel free to reply with it!

Hey there,

Is there a way to be sure how to read the MB BeVo correctly.

For example https://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/bevolisten/bevo-sheets-sort1.html has General information on gear oils, but there are so many sheets 236.1/.2/.3/.6/.7/.8/.9/.10/.11/.12/.13/.14/15/.16/.20/.21/.25/.26/.41/.81/.91
Mine is 722.605, how to know the correct sheet I need?
Sheet 236.10 says with and without, but specify 722.6.
Many UK owners use TITAN ATF 4134 - MB 236.14 approved.

And then on the queue Engine OIL, antifreeze, differential oil....

Thanks for the answers!
