Hi JP, I strongly disagree.
Never heard about LHM in power sterring for our SZ cars.
Original recommandation was Dex II , then Dex III.
My Sy cars were using dex II the Dex II.
My SZ cars, 92 and 97 were using Dex II then the recommandation from Crewe was Dex III.
Dex III is totally compatible where Dex II was recommanded. But the contrary is not valid, don't put Dex II where Dex III is required.
I would like others opinions such as JeyJey, Paul Yorke & Brian, to make sure we provide a relaible reply.
Still owning Mercedes and having owned several from several generations and reading owners books in details I can tell you that untill 95, MB recommandation was Dex II then Dex II for power steering.
Then fluid changed and Mercedes added 2 new power steering fluid, whic are not compatible with anythinelse. One fluid is sort of yellow, the other is sort of green ( pentosin).
Even is Mercedes you cannot put LHM.
LHM is specific and requires specific seals.
