Where do I add power steering fluid in 560sec???

I know this is a dum-dum question but my owner's manual doesn't show the location of the power steering reservoir. I've always had my mechanic do this service but decided to check fluid levels today. Help! Can anyone email a photo or give me specific instructions on how to find it?
Thanks MB folks!

Welcome to the forum..SoCal

No such thing as a dumb question. Only dumb if you don't ask. I don't know if I yanked the right picture but I snagged this off of ebay. I'm driving a much newer benz now but I'm pretty sure you use ATF in the power steering. There's also a filter in the bottom of the reservoir. IF your PS fluid(ATF) has gotten really brown and nasty it wouldn't be a bad idea to flush the old stuff out and replace. It's about a 20 min job if I remember correctly. Mercedessource.com sells the filter and an instruction set on how to flush it all out. I did it on my 123 one time. Anyway... I think this should be close to the engine you have. just unscrew the top and enjoy...:)

ops... I think I misspelled resv. in the picture...LOL...
