Oil Change on '97 E320

I do this all the time on my same model MB. I pull the front up on a pair of ramps to which I fasten a short length of 2X12 as a "run-up" so the front spoiler will clear the ramp. There is a handy fixture you can make out of a gallon plastic milk jug to keep from getting oil all over everything, including yourself. Cut the bottom and about one-half of two adjoining sides out so that it will fit over the corner of the pan with the plug and direct the old oil down into the collecting pan. You have to hold the modified jug in place until the flow subsides but it works great.
