E420 maintenance question -steering

With everything done for 60K service, I was reading through maintenance schedule and it mentioned "retighten steering gear bolts" meaning don't loosen but check torque. The line drawing shows 3 bolts what looks like near the steering column. When I open the hood and look, by drivers side, I cannot see the steering column with all the stuff that is crammed into the engine bay. Is this drawing possibly looking from under the car?

Any help, as always, is appreciated.

The bolts are in the left inner wheelhouse behind the tire.
The W140 chassis uses stretch bolts & the torque ins't checked on that car & most of the newer cars have rack & pinion steering.
