Red face Tranny fill Walkthrough

Can anyone help me with an automatic transmission fill walkthrough? I received a 190e but the guy wasn't clear on the year of the car however I'm almost sure it's a '92. That said, the transmission fluid is low and I need to fill it. The trans dipstick has no fill markings on it either, which I find strange. Any help would be huge at this point. Also, I'm in Santiago, Chile. Just so you know. Thanks guys.

On the W201, fluid level checks are done with the engine running, warmed up to normal temperature and the transmission in Park. There should be two engraved lines on the transmission dipstick a couple inches from the bottom. Those lines denote the minimum and maximum levels and there is a 0.3L difference between the two marks.

"Topping off" is done via the dipstick tube with a funnel. Go slowly and do not overfill beyond the maximum level indicator.

Before turning off the engine, with the brake engaged, move the shifter through all the positions, pausing briefly at each notch. Put the car back into park and recheck the trans fluid level again. If the level has lowered, add more fluid and repeat the process above.

I did a DIY on this awhile ago. Do a SEARCH for my name and you'll see pictures on it.
It's really not that much different than any other car.
Your going to Drain all that old nasty fluid.
Make sure you use Factory Spec. Fluid. I used MERCON Dexron III for mine.
It met all the Specs. by MB.
I changed out the Filter
Used a Lint Free rag to clean the Pan and drippings
I replaced the Pan Gasket.
I filled it to the required amount.
CAREFULLY Check your Owner's Manual on this.
There's a FULL Tranny Changeout, Tranny plus Differential.
If you are doing that, it requires more Tranny Fluid.

If you are just doing the Tranny it will require less Fluid.
Fill it to EXACTLY, not an Ounce more than Required.
System will overpressurize and cause cascading problems.
I updated my Maintenance Log Book.

It's not as hard as you imagine.
Same as other cars.
