Oil Dipstick Location on C320?

This is embarrassing! I can't find the oil dipstick on my '02 C320!! I see the oil filter. Where's the dipstick located?

Also, the plastic engine cover...is there a special way to remove it?

Dipstick - possibly there isn't one. Depends on year/model. On my 04 CLK they had been discontinued and all I have there is a dummy red plastic plug in the dipstick tube. All oil level readings are available at the cluster.

Plastic covers are held in place by about 4 clips. Grab the cover with a hand on each side, and give it a sharp yank upwards. It won't break, but mind your knuckles! It is important to get it positioned correctly when you replace it.

^^ thanks for the tip on the engine cover. After a google search I found that my car has its oil tube at the rear of the engine, where domestic cars' tranny dipstick normally sits. Mine has a black cap on it.

I was shocked to see that the engine requires 8 quarts of oil!

More oil = longer change interval.

Randy, the tube at the rear should be the trans tube. The engine oil tube is near the front right hand side near the intake tube.

I thought there was no dipstick and you can check it with the arrows on the steering wheel

Noobie23....you are right there is NONE just a place for the Red plug to go in but you have to read your oil level etc. from the dashboard.
