Look at the label on the front of the bottle and compare it to the M/B numbers on sheet 236.14.

I already have some litres of the above ATF in the above picture in the car. My mechanic says i require 2 more litres for top up. Hope it's ok topping up with Liqui Moly Toptec 1600 recommended from the link you sent @ Maj. Dundee. Been using it close to a year now, with no issues.

It depends on the year of production of your transmission as to the correct fluid ...

But is that fluid on the list? What is the part number on the front label?

February 2009. Also from the original list I saw the Liqui Moly atf top tec 1600 is approved. My question is mixing with the original fluid. Think the colour was blue/green. I haven't used the Liqui Moly atf and I don't know the colour

7-speed automatic transmission 722.9 up to transmission sequence number 2834526 uses specification 236.14.
7-speed automatic transmission 722.9 as of transmission sequence number 2834527 uses specification 236.15.

There is no prohibition on mixing old transmission oils with new ones at BEVO, but I believe it would be best to add oil of the same make and model.
