Hi,

first, i supose it's the cooling system . . .
it's normaly low, don't fill it to the top, anyway it will overflow when running if you put too much.
You should ask the MB garage to get the same fluid, some cooling fluids can't be mixed !
On your dashboard, If the warning heating system light is not on, the level is OK.
filling has to be done engine off and cold.

JFR - I think our friend is refering to the resevoir in the trunk for the roof hydraulics. Good advice though, go ask your MB service rep for the right fluid and what level it should be at...
