Nope that canister hold SLS fluid and the filter. The oil filter is under the car on the drivers side of the engine, its a canister type filter and can be a PITA to remove if your motor mounts and or subframe mounts are bad.

That CV joint boot doesn't look so bad, those boots are very thick.

Does this mean that either the engine mount or the subframe mount has to be unbolted to gain access to the filter?!

This could suck.


hrm. found this: The damn W115 oil filter!

The filter is a cannister type with removable element. It is installed from below with a large screw at an angle. It goes in between various elements and is a tight fit getting in or out. If you have a bad motor mount the engine settles and the clearances apparently tighten up so it will not come out. In that case you may as well get the new motor mounts and put them on because you really don't wanna drive it that way.

The 123 filter location is diametrically opposed in its convenience to change.

If the engineer who designed the filter arrangement on the 115 chassis had to change the oil a few times it would have been incentive enough to come up with a better system! (it REALLY sucks....you about cannot do it without oil running down (up) your arm into your arm pit.)

OK, here's what I found tucked up by the firewall:



The SLS pump would be attached to these if someone hadn't been an idiot.

Before you decide anyone is an "idiot", perhaps you might try to source the needed parts first. The cost might have been the deciding factor on the "conversion".

"Incompetent hack" or "too cheap to properly maintain a Benz" might be two terms you'd consider using.

Now, "idiot", is a term I use for people like myself. You know, the kind of guy who spends wayyy too much time, sweat, blood and money restoring a car worth about a nickle-two-ninety-eight just 'cause they like the way it looks. Sayyy, seems to me YOU fall into that category!

HEY I resemble that remark!

My wife told me yesterday I was obsessing after I MADE her sit in the car to listen to the iPod port I put on the Europa. She...just...doesn't....understand.

AHA! Tonight I had some spare time, and it's unseasonably warm here in MI, so I decided to put the clutch master cylinder on. Very easy job, had it done in under 20 mins. After bleeding, on a hunch, I looked under the car, and lo! Fluid dripping from the trans/engine mating point! My "rear main seal leak" has now become, simply, an "internal clutch slave cylinder leak". Joy!


Edit: Unfortunately, while having to remove the carpet/mat on the driver's side, I uncovered a baseball-sized rust bubble underneath the sound deadener. Poke. Poke. Poke. OH GOD WHY

Someone's gotta tell me what that stupid valve is in front of the petrol tank, too. I'm obsessing about it.
Yeah, Memphis can kickass .... especially when finding old MBs. You've got a nice looking car.
