When it is pretty clear from the return line it will be changed. Also, if it is like the W123 it will have a screen in the top of the reservoir that will either need to be cleaned or replaced. Not quite certain but I believe you are supposed to raise/lower the rear of the car while changing to get it to "change" at the struts. [/B]

1. In addition to the filter in the reservoir, Is there also a filter in the rear suspension that needs to be changed?

2. Someone told me that the hyd fluid is actually Bilstein hyd suspension oil that is marketed as Febi (dark blue bottle). Can you confirm?

As usual, Thanks for all your input. Been learning a lot from knowledgeable guys like you.
