Yes, all the Estate models had Rear SLS as standard. Other models like the 4 door - as option (rare, obviously), except some special edition models like the 500E, which AFAIK had it as standard also.

Was he not referring to the 300CE when he mentioned that? I think some people have access to the car spec via the car reg plate. You can do it with some cars on www.parkers.co.uk

You can see the hydraulic reservoir on the passenger side under the bonnet. It has two pipes coming out, one is SLS and the other is for the diff.

No, not as standard. There was the usual French "familiale" option though of having a third row

Yep a bench

Quite unusual that the 404 has two rear seats. Most familiales of the era had 3 seats in the middle row and a bench as the third row or just two rear benches
