Oil change and a smart key question

Hello guys, maybe you can help me out here, i have a 2002 S430 and i am planning on changing the oil myself, it has 165k miles, is the oil filter in an hard to get place? What oil you guys recomend? Also i have an issue with my smart key, i can unlock the car, open the trunk but i can't lock the car and activate the alarm. Replies will be appreciated.

Thank You.

Here is a sticky from the w220 forum:

Oil change:

This DIY does not use a suction pump. I would post your question on the w220 forum. While I do not have the same chassis as you do, I use a suction pump for oil changes on my mercedes without any issues.

Filters can be purchased at the dealership or autohaus arizona.

As to your key, check your owners manual. There might be instructions on fixing your problem. If not, check or search the w220 forum. In case you do not have the owner's manual, I have linked it:

the Spare key does less, doesn't even open the car, the One I have just unlocks the doors and opens the trunk, now I see this on Ebay

MERCEDES REMOTE KEY KEYLESS FOB REPLACEMENT CASE BUTTON | eBay

I wonder if you guys think that this could work, if it does I might as well buy 2 of them.

I seriously doubt it. If the key is the problem a new case won't do anything. You're problem (if the key) is in the electronics.
