I just bought some power steering fluid from my MB dealer but it's green! I thought they would just give me some red ATF. Is the green stuff the right fluid to use for the W126 power steering system?

I've used green synthetic PSfluid from Valvoline in mine without any problem.

I believe the green is for the new current models and not for the w126. Let them know your year and model.

They gave you Pentosin. Good for ABC systems and most of the newer models, not for 126.
