oil level sensor

I have a 05 s430 sedan that has a cracked oil level sensor and is leaking oil. The dealer says its not bad at all and I can wait but Im curious if anyone knows how to replace this part. Is it very difficult? Not that anything is easy on these cars. The part is about 100 bucks. If anyone knows where to find instructions on how to do this I would appreciate it or if you kow how to do it and its fairly easy please let me know.

HI Matthew - welcome to the site.

As you have a W220, your post would be best in that forum. Also, if you intend to use this site regularly, please add some details to your posts with the UserCP ^^^. Your location often helps.

Your specific problem comes up often and has been addressed before. Take a look at this other thread.


The procedure for M112 and M113 engines is the same. Clearly it means raising the car on ramps/jackstands, and laying on your back to do the job. That's unless you have access to a hoist.

Thanks for the info and where to find instructions. This is something I could never do so time to let the dealer do it.
Thanks again
