Question about Mercedes-Benz GL 450
There is fluid on my garage floor and the leak appears to be coming from the back, lower area of the power steering reservoir. Is this a common problem? Where can i find instruction on how to replace? I am capable but have not worked on Mercedes before.

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaking.
With the engine switched off. Go under the car and clean of all the fluid you find. Now start the car and turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock. Switch off the engine and go under the car and you should see the area of the fluid leek. With this information you can then decide how to tackle the repair.

You have permanent all wheel drive dude. The system is always ready to go. If you want to do some offroading, activate the "off road" button that looks like a vehicle climbing uphill on the lower, center dash panel. This will allow more slip for the traction control system and hold lower gears longer in the trans

No there is no common area for leaks. You will need to have an assistant in the car turning the wheel while you look for fluid. If you can't find the leak that way then you will need to clean all parts and find what part is leaking. The parts to check are the power steering pump,pressure line,return line and the steering gear. When checking the steering gear pay special attention to the bellows boots on the tie rod ends
