Transmission Fluid and Filter Change C280

Is there anyone out there who is willing to post here or in the DIY section detailed and step-by-step instructions on changing the AT fluid and filter (please include parts and tools needed) on a 96 C280 (or equivalent). Thanks.

Hope this helps

No sure about your car, but mine, 1992 300e goes like this.

Put up on ramps, block wheels (don't run your self over).

The mistake I made was I removed the drain plug, pan, filter. Reassembled and then added 6-7 quarts of transmission fluid. I ended up with a driveway coated with 6-7 quarts of transmission fluid.

Must drain the torque converter!! There is an (allen, i think) plug that screws into the torque converter, must rotate engine until drain plug lines up with opening in housing then remove plug and drain. Otherwise just changing a quart or two that's held in the pan.

I would do a search, I am sure there are threads on the subject.

Good luck,
