Because I would rather do it myself, I enjoy doing my own work on the car. I don't know whats so hard to understand?? I see the DIY for the SL55, so I want to know if theres a way to do it on the V12 motor.

I just did mine. All you need is a topside oil extractor, a OEM filter, and 9qts of MB approved oil. Takes about 30 minutes and you never even get your hands dirty.

I use this one:

Thanks, but is there another way (like from under the car)? Or do you still get the same amount of oil out with the topside oil extractor?

The plug is on rear passenger side corner of oil pan, either buy new plug and copper washer or put thread sealer on old bolt or oil will leak out dam 0w40. If u want all oil out, loosen oil cooler nut and drain oil cooler, u might need 10 to 11 quarts if u do this depends if u have 65 or 600, diff size oil coolers.

Yes, there is a drain plug, but your dealer uses an extractor, and it's good enough for me. Yes, you get every drop of oil out using this method. I always suck out what the owner's manual states as the capacity, so that's a good indication.

Plus, in order to pull the drain plug, you have to remove the undercladding. And there's always the possibility that you strip the threads on the drain plug, then what?

Ever wonder why your dealer does it with an extractor?

Thanks for the help. I'm gonna order an extractor today.
Also, I didn't know the dealer uses an extractor. I though they did it the original way?? But if you say it works and you trap 120+ than I'll listen to you

Once you move out of mommy's apartment, and into a big boy house with a garage, you'll change.
