The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF
Mercedes-Benz: Use only manufacturer approved fluid
Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level
I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.
It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

the transmission on your MB is sealed with no way to check the trans fluid level,(no dipstick provided for) that is why the report says "sealed". MB did this to stop customers from overfilling there transmissions, which can cause severe damage if not done properly at the correct fluid temp, this requires special test scan tools.
