This is a great post on changing oil - thanks.

The only thing I can think of (but I'm not sure about - haven't done an oil change on my MB yet) is:

Does the oil pan bolt have a washer or some sort of seal? If it does then it needs to be replaced as well.

My old diesel Pajero had a washer on the oil pan bolt and after every oil change (every 6000km - 10000km) the washer had to be changed with the oil - some mechanics may not do this - but I know from experience that you will get oil drips if you don't. *once again, not sure if this applies to MB's.

Thanks so much for all of the Info. I tackled the Spark Plugs and Fluid Changes and your post was so very helpful on my C320.
Now, where is that pesky Cabin Filter located??

Don't forget, that when you disconnect the battery, the A/C stepper motors lose memory position, therefore it is recommended that you resynchronize the stepper motors (only with the SDS). This we have been seeing in that it is the main cause for the "ticking/popping" noise from the dash board on the 203 chassis. This is due to the stepper motor remembers the LAST position, and therefore when you reconnect the battery and the interior CAN wakes up, the motor overruns and snaps the inner area of the motor arm, creating the noise.

Disconnect the battery???

Resynchronize the stepper motors...

Otherwise, this post was great!

Happy Benzing!!!
