Red face WASHER BOTTLE OVERFLOWS ? SLK3500

Hi guys i have a 05 SLK350 UK and when i fill the windscreen washer bottle up it never gets to the top like every other car i have (even my girlfriends C200 fills to the top) it just starts to come out under the wing near the drivers door is this normal ? as i dont like the thought of water keep going inside the wing/sill every time i fill the bottle up.

This does not sound normal to me, but I have never had an SLK.

You mean this is typical fault on this model? I would not call it normal even if it existed on most of these cars. Thanks anyway for the valuable info.
