Hi,

Mine W204(m271), the power steering fluid level is @ 20c max level..even after long driving .. I think is rather low (correct level should be somewhere between 80c min/max .. Power steering sometime few heavy, sometime very light feeling .. 

Just bought 1lit from Goldenlink (A001 989 24 03 10) $24 .. will do a simple siphon & refill later .. 

regards

Mine W211 chap ni liao (10years already). M272 engine. Going strong 💪 and smooth.. however,  I still pondering and unsure if poured in the correct P.S. fluid?🤔 hehe...

Anyway its either MB sheet 236.3 or 345. most importantly for me at least, problem is solved.🤗

The one catfish bought confirm to be Pentosin CHF 11S (MB 345).

Don't suppose flushing is mandatory as the design life of original factory filled P.S. fluid I read somewhere is said to be 15 years.

Cheers...

Hi

Just completed siphon out ~ 450ml using shampoo dispenser, the old PS fluid came out  dark brown in color, pour in the MB345 (green ) ,  close to max level ..  Did a quick test, steering now much lighter ....will monitor tomorrow ,,

My steering so far is smooth, no noise ... just that sometime feel heavier than normal . 

 

Will do another round of siphon + replacing weekend ... to further clean up more old PS fluid out.. since I still have ~ 500ml left .. :)

Well, it's a quick night job ... no harm spending $24 'replacing ' the PS fluid using this method .. 

 

regards

Hi

I thought there are only two types? & seems interchangeable .. 

A 000 989 88 03  (MB236.3) 500ml? yellow?

A 001 989 24 03 10 (MB 345.0) green 1 lit (some say, this is good for -25c )
