Broken oik filter housing

While removing the old oil filter from my '03 C240, the oil filter housing broke. Do I have to replace the whole housing or does it dissassemble?

Sorry to hear that. Are you talking about the filter assembly, the black composite that the filter slides onto and then screws into the engine block? If so the whole thing is one unit, dealer item only unfortunately.

For future reference there is a forum attuned to your specific chassis, it's the W203 forum down below. You're always likely to get better info on your car there than in the general forums.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
