First thing to get is an oil pump/Oil Extractor 12V DC, from Adendorff machinery mart. you will need that to pump the old oil out through the dipstick hole/pipe.

Get the oil from the agents. There are only two different ones from them. Diesel and petrol. Its cheap cheap. I'm not too sure on 204 but on 203 the whole sump cover needs to come off which is a pain. The oil filter housing might have the nut type of special tool type cover. Nut type then you will need a bug socket. Special tool type you can open with oil filter tool. Normal sump nut underneath. Then youtube how to reset service light. OIl filter can be purchased from gold wagon but I don't like those. I get from agents. Its not that much expensive. They don't come with sump washer so careful not to lose it. You can reuse the sump washer up to about 5 times until they eventually start leaking.

YesNo
why will you want to go through all that trouble of removing the whole sump cover when you can just pump the oil out?

Because draining the oil the old fashioned way gets more of it out

It does drain through the sump plug. Dealerships use the pump method to save time from removing the sump guard and replacing the sump nut washer. As fanatics we prefer to get every last drop out even if it takes all day. Workshops need to shift out the cars.

Very nice toy, only R295. I want one. Those last few drops can stay in the sump.

BTW, I was once told that modern Mercs doesn't have sump plugs. Good to know that they are there if you know how/where to look.

Sump washer is easy. Go to Autozone/Midas/whatever. They stock them and you just need to know the size. Take the old one with you. Or measure it. Or ask them, they might know. Even if they are not sure, you can get one of each in several sizes. They are cheap enough for that. It will cost you more in petrol to take the wrong ones back than what they cost you.
