The filter I got from dealer comes with 5 O rings in 4 sizes. I heard I only need the largest one and two same size medium one, but dont need the two smallest ones. Is that correct? BTW, it is a C300.

Oh, and what filter do you usually use and where to buy? (other than dealer)


Thanks guys!

Once you remove the filter you will easily see which O rings you will need.

Advanced Auto has a Purolator filter that comes with the o-rings and the filter is marked "MANN Filter - made in Germany" They also carry Mobil 1 0W-40 for $6.99/quart

Ok, I've searched over and over with no luck. Please someone help. Where is the oil filter and drain plug?????? I took off the undertray's.....I was lost under there. nothing looked like an oil filter or somewhere for it....or the drain plug. Can anyone post pics please? FYI--I'm not a rookie under the hood...just a rookie with MB. Thanks in advance.

Search some more, it's been covered pretty well in a few different threads.
The oil filter is on top, like a BMW. The oil can be extracted through the dipstick, with an extractor.
