89 560sel Hydraulic Resevoir dry, leaks from rear of vehicle.

Hello everyone,

I really need some help on this one. I have a 89 560sel that leaks under the rear passenger side.

The Hydraulic resevoir is "bone dry". I don't know what the fluid specs are and need some troubleshooting tips on how to find where the leak is coming from.

Has anybody else had this issue? If so, any help will be appreciated. I got some pics below showing the resevoir and where I spotted the " area of the leak. Thanks in advance
