Great instruction. Thanks for sharing.
I wonder whether they make any pump with bigger reservoir. My 9 qt isn't always enough in one round. Would recommend buying an air-compressor model over manual one.

he forgot to mention in the beginning that you have to pre-heat the engine for about 5- 10 min just to "soften" the oil so that when yuou pump it out it would be easier.

I am pretty sure he said that the car must be at operating temperature before changing the oil.

Here is another oil change instruction document. I posted this on the forum a while ago, both docs are good...gotta love the forums...can really save people hassles in trying to figure things out on their own and helps mitigate the fears of doing it yourself versus paying the dealer.

We need to start a DIY sticky like in the ML forum. Anybody knows how to do that. This way we can have all DIY procedures in one spot

It's either 0W or 5W synthetic oil with pour points something like -50 degrees F.

We need a moderator huh. I could do it with someone else but since I have not done it before I am not sure what exactly the job involves.

All you need to know is the forum rules.
If someone bashing others for wrong reasons or break the rules, you just give warning and banning them from the forum.
Also, helping others with technical questions, moving threads around to the correct places.

I have been as moderators for several Free To Air satellite sites and have been helping people as newbies how to set up dishes and install equipments.

Can any R owners confirm whether or not the above A/C Cabin Filter procedure will work for my '06 R350? I'd like to change out the cabin filter (I've owned this vehicle for 6 months and it still smells of heavy cologne), but thought I'd read else where on this board that you have to go through the glove box in order to get to the cabin filter.
