Oil change for 96 E320

according to the instructions in D.I.Y., you suck the oil out. Does this mean that there is no drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan that I can use to drain the oil to a drain pan?

use the drain plug, you will first need to remove the plastic cover. your oil filter cap is clearly visibly from the top of the engine bay, towards the cabin.
