Smile E420 where's the dipstick?

Just bought a 1997 E420 and I can't locate the dipstick. Do I have to remove
the plastic cover on top of the engine?

This is my 4th benz, usually had diesels and loved them all.

You have a W210 so come join us over on that forum. Someone with another E420 will answer that question and any others you might have. In the meantime, I seriously doubt you have to remove the engine cover to check your engine oil dipstick (is that the one you meant?). You also might check your owner's manual.
