Go down (or up) ... er ... (or over) ... (or around) ... ah ...
whatever. Go to the nearest ... (or maybe one a bit further away) ...
um ... well just go to an MB stealership and go into the parts
department and ask for some steering fluid for a 96 SL500. They will
give you some after you give them some money or a credit card or a
check or a money order or a 1st or 2nd mortgage on your house or ...
Then just take it and add it to your steering thingy that is under the
hood of the car. The hood is that part on the front of the car that
your MB star rests on and it has little cracks around it (the hood has
little cracks around it, hopefully not the star). The hood has a hood
release in the cabin that has to be pulled. Then you go to the front of
the kar and look for a little gray thingy sticking out of the grill and
pull on it. (If you hear a loud braaaaap and smell a strange odor after
pulling on either of these previously described devices, you may have
pulled the wrong thing). (If you have pulled the wrong thing you may
want to wait for a while to allow the odor to dissapate). (Of course
you may wish to go dissapate a bit yourself at this point). So having
pulled on the little gray plastic thingy sticking out of your grill -
be carefull !!!! Do not break it!!!! - the hood will open if you lift
it. Oops!!! You also have to hold the little gray thingy out while
lifting the hood. And then there is the latch that you have to reach
under and release for the hood to open all the way up. Well at this
point, I would just give it up and drive the thing into the garage area
of the stealership and ask them to install the steering fluid. Of
course since I have a big ole S Klass wif them gud ole boyz partyin on
in tha bak seat, I culd jest krawl inta tha bak and party on whilst
them wrenches is installin the fluid. Not sure what you could do to
pass the time without a big back seat - perhaps go to the waiting
lounge and poll the people there to see how many would go hunting with
Dick Cheney vs how many would go for a ride with Ted Kennedy. Boy this
sure does get complicated! Hope you have some good luck and get the
fluid in before the steering gear thingy runs dry!
