Posting location besides model year would be very helpful.
In California lot of automotive places carry basic MB stuff. One chain here carry even MB OEM coolant. Start calling around before wearing out the car for the search, since it is not common in every area.
MB are design for oil extraction and with MityVac it is about 15 minutes job on my driveway.
Even shorter without a beer.
