Brake fluid type and quantity required 2014 E250 bluetec

Hi all- going to be changing the brake fluid on my 2014 E250. I see a couple types of MB brand brake fluid on the market. What kind do I need and how much fluid to drain and fill the system. Thanks!

Thanks konigstiger.

Got my MB EPC CDs and have not figured out how to print off work instructions.
Plan to R&R my brake fluid this weekend.

I have a liter of ATE Brake Fluid; SuperGold Dot 4, Type 200 that I would like to use.
Anyone disagree with using ATE type 200 or should I go with MB ?

I've used Pentosin Super Dot 4 in the past and it looks like ATE type 200 has a higher wet/dry boiling point than Pentosin so I guess it should be good. Pentosin is about $14 a quart at Advance Auto and the last time I used a 30% off coupon code so it a little under $10 for a quart. The best code they have now is about 25% off.

According to the pdfs, a w212 should take 0.6 liters.

Anyone have an estimate for a s212 (wagon) ?

I installed Cute PDF Writer in the VM that I run the WIS/EPC in and just print to the PDF printer that it installs.

The wagon probably takes a similar amount of brake fluid. When I did new rotors and pads this weekend on my '14 AMG wagon I did passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front, then drivers front with a Motive pressure bleeder.

Planning to bleed the old fashion way, with my son on the pedal and in the same order as you write.

I also used the pentosin dot 4 plus from Advance. Cheaper than the MB fluid and much closer trip to boot. The quart/liter bottle should be enough to flush it out. I used the vac bleeder that looks like a garden sprayer to pressurize the master cylinder and then went around to each wheel and bled off each line. Bleed off the passenger side rear first and do it the longest so you get all the old fluid out through that line. You can either siphon out the old fluid from the master cylinder first or just bleed it way down and then fill it up with fresh and do it again.

The power bleeder is a revelation. No more finding a 2nd person and coordinating "down", "up", "down", "up". I've had one for ~10 years now, after about 6 years the plastic tubing can degrade and spray brake fluid everywhere so just take look at the tubing before you pressurize and don't use it if it's discolored or feels weird.

An alternative is to do it like aquinob and run it 'dry'. I will top off the reservoir to beyond max, attach the bleeder and pressurize, then bleed one wheel. I'll pop my head up to make sure the reservoir still has fluid and top off if necessary before moving to the next wheel. The advantage of this is if the hose does burst it's just air and also you don't have to clean out the pressure bleeder after you are done with denatured alcohol.
