Distilled water tends to be bottled. Reverse-osmosis filtered water would be fine too.

Do not use bottled drinking water. That's no better than tap water.

If you've been a good customer of your local dealer, they're more likely to goodwill the repair. I have read reports of it happening, but I don't think the cars were ten years old.

None of us used to expect that out of a 2001 M-B, but we now know that the W210 is quite susceptible.

I have never seen one in my life that worked that way. The slave cylinder rests at the end of its stroke when you remove your foot from the pedal. This is not the case with the annular cylinder.

If your regulator is damaged to the point where the slider isn't enough, you replace the regulator itself while reusing your motor. It's not extremely expensive.

Here's a picture of one:

Afterglow is a pretty good load. Above resting voltage after engaging the starter motor and during afterglow, means that it's putting out some serious current.
