Hi there

Got a quick request, where can I buy an Oil filter housing cap removal tool for my 96 C220. Any at Pepboys or Kragen? or do I have to order one.

Oil Filter cap

They are available all over. I think you need a 73mm. Make sure it fits before you leave the parking lot.

Good Luck!:thumbsup:

Hey cjshade great to hear from you.
I told my mechanic I was gonna do the next several oil changes myself, I just changed the oil today with my new Topsider, didn't do the filter cuz of the lack of the tool. Anyway my mechanic says he expects me back in 7000 miles because he says the C220 would need pads by then.

I'll go to Pepboys and check out the 73mm tomorow.

Filter tool

Yeh, back 4 years ago when we got our C they were harder to find, at my Autozone anyway. I ended up buying one that was a little to big. I managed to downsize it a little with some duck tape.:D

Good Luck!:thumbsup:

I got one from Kragen this morning, it says for Mercedes Benz OEM, didn't bring the car , actually my wife now drives the car 90% the time, the Honda Pilot stays park most the time, same with my 2006 ,5.4 liter Ford F150 SC
I use my 1987 VW Cabriolet as a daily driver (Need to drive to the ground by 06-09). I want to buy a 1984-85 R107 SL ( uses regular gas and can be had for about $5.000)

Oil Filter tool size

F150SC,

Does it happen to say the size in mm that it fits? I would like to get one that fits should I wander across one. The nearest Kragen is a ways away, but if I'm sure of the size I will be Golden buying one elsewhere.:D

Also, anyone reading this later will know the right size too.:thumbsup:

Thanks,

C as in 220

As soon as the car pulled in the driveway, I popped the hood and check the tool, perfect fit, it is by FLOTOOL # 7, $5.95 at Kragens. The C220 gets 21 mpg city, versus 13 city for the Pilot EXL 4wd. Explains why the C220 is now our dedicated city car.
