Service B cost in Australia

My 2007 e500 is in for a service B today ... Bracing for the bill

They called me to say that it needed wiper blades ... At $130 ... Ouch

Was told that S class wipers are $300 and I was lucky

Will update on final damage

Wasn't as bad as I thought - about 1200 all up.

What shocked me was that included 255 for Oil!

Wow - that is a lot cheaper - obviously not done by a merc dealer?

Wonder if there is much diff between a Service B on an e270cdi vs e500?

Checked up on the oil they used... I think he said Mobil 1 0w/40 which costs about 90 per 5 litres and my 5.5 v8 takes 8.5 litres. Which when adding dealer servicing inflation sounds about right.

It was done by a dealer in Melbourne who specialises in BMW and Mercedes. I remember him saying he used some Caltex brand oil that worked well on older diesel motors like mine

No.. Service A is the basic engine oil & filter change.

Service B should also include a long list of checks - brakes, battery, coolant, etc. ALL of which are easily done by yourself.

So (if your warranty has expired) why not DIY your own basic servicing. There is enough information here to enable anyone to do it. Using suction, you don't even have to crawl under the car to drain the oil these days. I do, but I'm old-school....

No, Service B they only change the oil and filter - I checked my invoice again and other than checking lights work and other stupid pointless things they do not physically adjust or replace anything.
So I am correct - it is $800 paid for less than $200 of real time and materials , I only do it as I intend to sell the Merc soon and most buyers want a dealer FSH.

As I understand it, the old Service A & B were discontinued for your W211 class, and replaced by listed 'services' 1 to 20 to cover the entire vehicle. (ASSYST)

These specify items that need checking or replacement according to distance or time. Most are listed as every 2 years.

Engine oil & filter replacement is covered by another schedule that depends on the oil used, eg MB spec 229.5 is OK for up to 20k km.
