How to Check and add Steering oil to a Mercedes Benz A160
Open the hood and find the reservoir for the power-steering fluid. It will probably be labeled on the cap. If not, look near the belts for a pulley-driven pump with a plastic or metal reservoir on top.
Check the fluid level. The cap will have a small dipstick attached if the reservoir isn't see-through. Wipe the dipstick clean with a rag and put the cap back on. Remove the cap and check the level on the dipstick. Your car may have both full hot and full cold indicators, as the fluid level will vary depending on whether the engine is cold or hot.
Add power-steering fluid as needed, using a funnel to avoid spilling. If the engine is hot, fill to the hot line. If the engine is cold, fill to the cold line.
Put the reservoir cap back on

Mercedes Benz A-class W168 Development
Production of the W168 A-Class began in 1997. It was also the first front
wheel drive passenger car from Mercedes-Benz. Its front engine, front wheel
drive layout was quite unusual for Mercedes. To date, more than one million
units have been sold worldwide.
One innovation of the W168 was a frontal-impact absorption system called
the "Sandwich" (see patents DE4326 9 and DE4400132 in the name of
Mercedes-Benz). In the event of a violent frontal impact, the engine and
transmission would slide underneath the floor below the pedals rather than
entering the passenger compartment.
The W168 became infamous in 1997 after flipping over during the traditional
"moose test" performed by the Swedish automobile publication Teknikens
Värld. According to the report, the W168 overturned when maneuvering to
avoid the "moose". Mercedes initially denied the problem, but then took the
surprising step of recalling all units sold to date (2,600) and suspending
distribution until the problem was solved by adding electronic stability
control and modifying the suspension. This marked the world premiere of
stability control in a small car. Nevertheless, the W168 A-Class was voted
the worst-handling car in Britain in the Top Gear Survey 2007 (completed by
owners of the vehicles).
As a result of the suspension stiffening described above, the ride on the
W168 is very firm; this combined with the short wheelbase makes this car
very jittery over rough surfaces. This is not a problem with the long
wheelbase version of the car.
How to Flush Your Power Steering Fluid

In this video, I explain how to flush power steering fluid using fresh
fluid, a siphon pump (a turkey baster works just fine). This job should be
done every 30,000 miles, or 50000 km and should take less than 20 minutes

Ever wanted to do a complete Automatic Transmission Service with a Fluid
Flush and Fluid Change! Well now you can do it in 10 Minutes! This DIY is
super easy really fast and ridiculously cheap. The reason we didn't change
the filter is because the filter on this transmission is internal and you

filter for the shift solenoid that can be cleaned to improve shifting.
There is a small black round filter for the transmission, its under the air
box near the solenoid that could be changed if you want to be more

Mercedes A-Class - test drive and review
When Mercedes first launched the A-Class it offered the less affluent
buyers a chance to get a taste of the premium segment. Judging by the
current offer in the premium segment Mercedes product people were right.
The first two generations of the A-Class may not have been the most
exciting cars on the market, but the new car seems different. Is it worth
the star on its bonnet?
