Approaching B service on '01 E430 4matic, what needs to be done??

I'm gonna do all the services on my benz myself and my B service is coming up. The car is just approaching 40,000 miles. What is necessary for me to do on this service and how do i go abouts resetting the computer for the service intervals?

Think Twice

not to sound pessimistic, but if you don't even know how to reset your FSS, you may want to reconsider in doing rest of the service yourself. I initially thought the same thing, but shops spend upto $60k in just mercedes tools. Good luck my dear friend.
What is Checked:
Interior
Function Check
Warning and indicator lamps, illumination and interior lighting
Windshield wiper, windshield washer system, headlamp cleaning system
Reset maintenance service counter in instrument cluster
Replace dust filter (not applicable to SL-Class)
Replace combination filter (SL-Class)
Check parking brake (function test only)
Wheels, brakes
Check condition/thickness of brake discs front/rear
Check brake pads for lining thickness front/rear
Check tires for damage and condition
Measure tread depth, record in mm
Correct tire inflation pressure
Underside of Vehicle
Check for major components leakage
Check for chafe marks, line routing, damaged components
Check condition of front axle ball joints and rubber boots
Check condition of mechanical steering components and rubber boots
Engine Compartment
Check for major components leakage
Check for chafe marks, line routing, damaged components
Check and replenish all fluid levels
Engine oil and filter change
Engine cooling system, antifreeze and corrosion protection
Brake system
Power steering
Active Body Control
Windshield washer system
Battery, check and correct fluid level; check battery condition
Check catch, safety catch and hinges on engine hood for proper operation
Check condition of poly-V-belt
Trunk
Battery, check battery condition

B service is basically an oil change and look over the car for anything that may be worn or damaged. You can probably handle it. You can reset the FSS by following the instructions in your manual.

I say skip it. It is only "CHECK" for your $550 personal Check!!! Just reset the FSS yourself and floor it

Anyone know what the A Service includes? I thought the B Service was the major one from the two. I have an 01 E430.

The B service *is* the major one. Lots of stuff is checked and changed like spark plugs.

That said, you could just reset the FSS and forget about it as suggested above. It would be like a longer version of driving-when-the-fuel-guage-goes-yellow type of game.
