2015 C300 Oil change + torque specs

Hi, I cannot find in the Mercedes Owner Manual the torque specs for the drain plug.
I vaguely finds other mercedes specs online of 30 NM. Anyone knows the real torque spec from the service manual ?

I also see that the oil filter is 25 + 5 NM. What does that mean exactly ? 25 NM and then 5 NM ? so simply 30 NM ?

last question!

I saw that people are doing oil change by pumping out the oil now ? Is this a thing now ? Is this the new way Mercedes are doing oil changes ? What was wrong with draining oil trough the drain plug ?

Thanks!

I think most of the people that are "pumpimg" out their oil are doing it as a DIY as this method avoids having to put the car on a lift and dropping the shield. If I'm doing it in my garage I "pump" it out. The dealer lifts the car, drops the shield and pulls the drain plug.

I also have an I/O boat where you have to pump the oil out as there is no access to the drain plug.

Can't help you with the torque specs, sorry.

30nm is plenty for your drain plug and the filter seals on an o ring so 25 is standard for most Benz cartridge filter caps.
