Exclamation need oil drain plug torque setting - W202 C43 AMG

I just dumped all the oil out of my C43, and now am ready to button it up. Does anyone know the correct torque setting for the oil pain drain plug/bolt ? I'd hate to over-tighten it or leave it loose enough to leak oil all over the garage...

Thanks in advance!

I would tighten it just tight enough, but not to tight. Say about 2.5Mz to about .5 of a loaf of bread. But remember to check it first.

Tighten it really hard until you just start to feel it get a little easier to turn, and then 1/2 turn more. HAHAHA.

I think the Torque is 18-20 ft-lbs
