This comes straight out of the MB maint manual - model years 1981-1993 - job #4210

"Brake fluid must be changed once a year, preferably in spring on models 124 and 201 through 03/91 production as well as models 107, 123, 126. On models 124 and 201 starting 4/91 production, and models 129 and 140 the brake fluid must be changed once every two years."

Brake fluid is hygroscopic-tends to absorb water, thereby lowering the boiling point of brake fluid - not good.
