W126 Hydropneumatic Suspension Pre '86


Could someone shed some light on how to identify (by looking at the engine bay) if the car has 4 corner or 2 corner hydraulic suspension?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, from '86 forward I can clearly see the hydraulic fluid reservoir tucked up in the corner next to the ABS unit. My problem has been looking at '85 Euro/US 500SEL's that the owner claims to have the hydro pneumatic suspension but I don't see any tank in the pictures. What am I missing?

Also does anyone have a picture of the three position switch for the 4 corner suspension?

Any history / details / help is greatly appreciated.
