Should be a screw on top of the pump - upper right side.
It should fit a hex/allen/key size 5.
Oil level should be between min and max.
After filling, tighten screw with 8NM torque

The screw on top of the pump is for the refill, the one on the side is to releave the preasure when you open the top manualy. There is a refill line on the side as well.

The pumps rarely need replacing.

SLK top leaks are almost always caused by one (or more) of three hydraulic cylinders in a system of five cylinders. These three are the small latch cylinder located under the headliner, and the two larger cylinders that raise and lower the top located just behind both seats. The rod seals in all three are made using a proprietary material that is designed to break down over time. The other two cylinders in the system that raise and lower the trunk almost never go bad. This is because they are designed using the time tested Nitrile rubber O-rings, not the Novathan material that are in the other three.

Also, the SLK hardtop mechanical pivot points are notorious for needing to be greased every couple of years. When they stick, it seams as the pump does not have enough power to raise the top. Some times the pump gets blamed for symptoms that pertain to other problems.
