Trust me, DO NOT USE a wrench to tighten the oil filter. I learned the hard way. I tightened it with a wrench and last week I wanted to change the oil myself and couldn't get the filter out. This was on a 92 190E 2.6. I had to take the car to a lube place and they drilled a hole across the filter with a thin rod and got it out. It came out in two pieces and luckily for me, there was no damage to the threads.
