I just did my first oil change on my '91 300E - topsider rocks!
Anyways, I could not loosen the oil filter with my hands .... I bought this filter removal tool at Autozone and managed to remove the oil filter .... however, I do not like this tool .....
When I installed the new oil filter (bought at Mercedes dealership), I tightened it with my hands .....
* Is there a better tool to tighten the oil filter?
* What is the best place to buy oil filters? (costs $14.70 at the dealership).
