Look in the service booklet for the items covered in the "A" service. If it's missing, drop by a dealer and get one.

The A is a glorified oil change, and is easily done by even a beginner DIY'er.

I use a Liquivac for the oil change, but still do the rest of the check. Changing the dust filter is easy. I also do the engine air filter at both A and B services.

The A serive for my C230 is:

Check:
Warning and indicator lamps, horn
Headlamps, exterior lamps
Wiper/washer system
Seat belts
Reset FSS
Replace Dust filter

Inspect tires tread depth
Tire Pressure
Brake pad thickness
Brake disc condition

Engine oil and filter change

Check:
Engine coolant protection
Brake fluid level
Windshield washer fluid level
Lubricate engine hood hinges

Check and correct spare tire pressure (not for SLK)
