New member and a sl300 question


I am new to this forum and am new to Mercedes. My wife and I live in WV and have antique vehicles but now have a 1990 sl300 with the straight six. A beautiful car. I have one question. Where is the oil filter and does it take a special tool to get if off?

Thumbs up Oil Filter

The oil filter is actually in a housing accessed under the hood at the driver's side rear of the engine. Near the fire wall. Unscrew the black or gray cover and remove the cartridge. It's a little messy. Warm the engine, drain the oil, then wait about 5 minutes before removing the filter. Stuff rags around the housing to catch any drops. A very easy job.
