Oil Change

Used the Stern oil change pump. It just took a few minutes to pump all the oil out, as opposed to the Top Sider which can take over twenty minutes.

I have the wrench for the filter housing cap but do not have an extension. It was difficult to take it off, but I just hand tightened it using the plate and the bolts on the wrench, for the next time.

My question is, how important is 25 Nm? It is not leaking any oil.

Where did you get the Stern pump? I am also annoyed with the Top Sider. It takes too long and, in between, I have to pump it up again to maintain the vacuum.

I will try to find that information for you, but meanwhile you can do a search in google. It costs around $45 and I believe it took under 5 min to completely pump all the oil out. The oil was hot. I pumped it into a 2 gallon gas can. The hoses supplied with it worked pretty good.

It is a whole like faster and cheaper than going to the MB dealership! and you can choose the oil.

25 Nm is about 18 ft.lbs I think. Not a lot of torque. 'Snug' is the best definition I can think of for a setting that low. I set my torque wrench to 20 an go just until I feel it start to click and I get no leaks. Small 3" or 6" extension should be cheap, non? If you are strong enough - hand tight could deliver 18 ft lbs too. I think it just seats the 'O' ring.
