Question How to ABC Rodeo

Hello Everyone,
Hopefully someone can help me out. I had a hose blow on my SL500 for the active body control. I have replaced the hose filled the fluid and started the car, it leveled out and gave me the ABC warning again. I shut the car back off and checked the fluid it was low again (as to be expected) restarted the car and still get the error. The level switch doesn't change the ride height and now the fluid is staying exactly where it is suppose to on the dipstick.

I would guess there is air in the system, is there ANY way to run the "Rodeo" process from the car? I don't have a scanner/controller to connect to the computer of the car.

Hopefully the answer is yes.

Change the filter yourself, but you have to go to the dealer for the "Rodeo"
It cost me $112
