Cool Hello from a happy C230 owner

Hi

I have owned my car for about a year so it is time to change the oil (had just been done when we purchased my 2000 c230 Kompressor) so I decided to join the forum to see how it is done. There is already plenty posted on how it is done so I don't need to ask the question. My husband is researching on what tool to purchase to "vacuum" the oil out through the dipstick - seems so much easier then going underneath....

I do have a question - I will repost on another forum if need be ... but my SRS light has been on for some time. I understand it has to do with the seat belts? Or is it the air bag? Does this mean the bag won't work if I have an accident? Is this an expensive fix? Thanks in advance for any information.

Thanks for MB for having this great forum!

-Denise

Welcome to Benzworld. Probably the air bag. After a number of years they are supposed to be replaced in some cars. Could be expensive.
