I have a bottle of green synthetic power steering oil to spec MB 345.00

Will this be suitable for a W220?

Thanks for that Malcolm.

No point giving MB silly prices if the same spec can be bought for less than half price.

Would I be correct in thinking this fluid would also be suitable for the Viano (W639)

Malcolm,

I have just had an email from the manufactures of the said power steering fluid and they say that their product is not suitable for my S-Class.

They wrote

I have looked on our software & the specification fluid you require is MB236.3.

Any thoughts? :shock:

BB00 40-P-0345-00

I missed the 2 zero's off the end and this is listed for 220 cars without code487a


BB00 40-P-0345-03A is for the 210, 170, 202,208

This revision is dated 24-03-03 operating fluid changed from
BB00 40-P-0345-03A to BB00 40-P-0345-00

How do I find out which power steering fluid I need for my car
It's a w220 s320 petrol limo with active body control

I called my local parts people and one said dealers only and other said to check owners Book to find out Which I need

I check the book bit not been successful in finding this

Will using other power steering cause problems?

I have seen the code Bb00 40 p 0345 from this post but will this b same for my car?
