How do I reset the service A light on the center console? I followed the instructions in the manual but they didn't work.

Also, for those who change their own oil and oil filter, where can I buy the attachment that goes on my wrench to get off the cap where the oil filter goes?

Thanks for the help

Following a completed A or B service the Mercedes-Benz Center sets the counter mileage to 10,000 miles (Canada: 15,000 km) and 365 days.

The counter can also be set by any individual. To do so:

Turn the electronic key in steering lock to position 2. To call up the trip odometer and main odometer, press button 3 or 4 on the multifunction steering wheel until the display appears.

Press button 5 or 6 until the FSS indicator appears.

Press button "R" on the instrument cluster for approximately 2 seconds.

The multifunction display will show the question:

"DO YOU WANT TO RESET SERVICE INTERVAL? - CONFIRM BY PRESSING R"

Press button "R" on the instrument cluster again, and hold until a signal sounds. The message "SERVICE INTERVAL HAS BEEN RESET" appears in the multifunction display.

The new service indicator is displayed with the reset distance of 10,000 miles (Canada 15,000 km).

The filter is not hard to get off. I use a the same filter wrench that I use on my Porsche... believe it or not it fits perfectly. About $7 at a Porsche dealer (p/n 000 721 920 40)
