Oil change--2003 E-class

How is the oil changed in the new E320? Can it be vacuumed out from the top? If so, how is this done, with no dipstick tube?

There is a tube with a cap on the end. Look carefully for it. You can use a LiquiVac or similar device, and suck it out through that tube.

You could buy a dipstick from the dealer to check the level manually, or simply add the "fill" amount right off the bat. That's what the dealers do.

I uinderstand that some new cars might not have drain bolts. Wonder if the W211 is the first...?
