Rear differential oil

If your car is euro it probably has limited slip. If it does it will probably have a little tag on the right rear side that says something like sperrdifferential. Which means that it is limited slip.

Mercedes only sells universal oil now, but they used to sell sperrdifferential oil which was limited slip oil.

I put the universal oil in a sperrdifferential and you can feel the limited slip kick in. So I think its ok to just use the universal mercedes oil.

I have the part number for the actual sperrdifferentialol its
A000 583 09 04 I specified it to Phil at mercedesshop, and I still got the regular univeral oil which has mercedes part number of 001-989-17-03-10 or the mercedes shop number of z8010-70053. I guess that the old sperrdifferentialol was superceded.

I hope this information helps, Feel free to email me about it if you need more info.
