Oil filter on 190E

Hi all,

This sounds like a stupid question I know, but I just got my 190E 2.0 litre 1990 car and I can't find the oil filter? I suspect it is under the air filter housing, but surely I do not need to remove the whole air filter housing to change the oil filter. Please help.

Also, what kind of oil filter is it? The screw on disposable cartridge kind or the kind that comes in a little pot with a through bolt?

Thanks for any help.

It is on the back of the engine on the left side as you are sitting in the car. (That is the right as you are on the outside)...It should be the disposable canister type.

Thanks, but is it under the airfilter housing? Do I have to take the airfilter off to find it?

I'll just butt in here. It's behind the air filter, just look between the rear of the air filter housing and the firewall. It is removed from the TOP of the engine, not from underneath. Just loosen it a little and wait 5 minutes, by loosening it you are allowing air in and the oil to drain out of the filter and into the pan. It takes some practice to do this right, to loosen it "just so". Or else get the engine hot and wait 15 minutes or so and it'll usually drain itself.
Removal of the filter shouldn't require removing the air filter if you have the proper "cup" type filter removal tool. If you feel you have to remove the filter, for reasons such as not being able to immediatly obtain the proper tool, then the removel of the air filter involves the 2X10mm nuts over near the valve cover, plus 1X10mm nut that only needs to be loosened over on the drivers side of the air filter housing, plus of course removing the breather hose on top of the air filter.
