ml-320 power steering fluid reservoir

Could anybody tell me where to add the power steering fluid to my 2000 ml-320?
I just got that car from my father who massed away, and I would love to keep it as he did, but now it's making a noise similar to the one you hear when you steer a wheel of car without power steering or something.
I will appreciate your help.

Welcome, David. You add the fluid after removing the lid with the white dot, in the center of the picture.

Best to pop up front of engine cover..

To "fill" the power steering reservoir, best to "pop-up" the front of the plastic engine cover - turn reservoir cap counterclockwise approx 1/4 turn to release point - a small flashlight comes in handy sometime to check the fluid level - and use a funnel or "plastic turkey baster" to add fluid to top-off the reservoir to fill point.

It is highly recommended to use MB power steering oil - roughly dealer list USD$9 a quart.

When tightening the cap back onto the reservoir, turn clockwise, and make sure you tigheten firmly all the way to the full stop/closed position, which sometimes takes a touch more umph than you might think.

Push the front of the engine cover back down to lock it in, and you are good to go.
