Hi .
This sounds like your Power Steering reservoir,
Here you nee MB power steering fluid which you can get at the Dealership
which i recommend as a lot of aftermarket fluids will make the steering squeak.
To be sure check this link of the photo of the power steering location .
This link will show you how to check this .
