Some basic W202 (C230) questions
Since no real shop manual is available for the 202s yet, I was wondering if someone could help me with a couple of basic issues:
1. How do you raise the hood to the vertical position? I see latches on both hinges, like my 124, but when I depress both of them, the hood moves slightly past the catch and then stays there. I can't get it to swing all the way up.
2. How do you service the spark plugs? Are they under the center panel on the valve cover?
3. Is the oil filter a cartridge type (not spin-on like the 300Es)? Anything special to it, or is it just - cover off, filter out, replace filter/o-rings, filter in, cover on?
