I have a c230 2005 and its time for the B sevice.They gave an
estimate of 690 and i am wondering just what is the minimal
to have done to not void the extended warranty?

$690 is too high. Dealer I am guessing told you this. At my indi shop is in the high $300 usually. Find a good indi shop in your area to do the work. You will not void the extended warranty. That can be done if you have work done at a shop/dealer that is not listed in the warranty. Service and upkeep work is not the same. Service B also includes the following:
SERVICE B
- Inspect windshield wiper inserts and service windshield washer system (Replacement of wiper inserts additional*).
- Inspect and rotate tires, record tread depth, and correct tire pressure. (Wheel balance additional*).
-excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK, and vehicles
with staggered wheels
- Engine oil change and oil filter replacement
-Includes Mobil 1 synthetic oil
- Lubrication service
- Includes hood hinges, lock cylinders, striker
plates, sun roof tracks and top off all fluids
- Cooling system inspection
- Includes antifreeze protection level, hoses and
clamps
- Brake inspection
- Includes check of pad thickness and condition of
discs, fluids and lines
- Inspect heating and ventilation dust filter, replace if needed. (Replacement additional*. Dust filter prices vary by model)
- Function check
- Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
- Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage
- Check and clean air filter
- Reset flexible service system counter
- Inspect front axle ball joints; check steering play and power steering clutch; and rear differential levels
- Inspect Poly V-Belt for condition
- Inspect starting and charging system and service battery

I love it As I understand it, here's how the services work:
SERVICE A: Change Engine oil & filter, allegedly grease or oil a few points, check a few things.
SERVICE B: Change Engine oil & filter, allegedly grease or oil a few points, check a few more things.
Note that even the air filter is EXTRA.
I have a 500SL & a CLK 230K, neither of which is allowed anywhere near a merc. monkey.
Incidentally, the oil service on the CLK takes about 15 mins with a pump, the 500SL a bit longer as I have to get under the car & actually get my hands dirty!

my C300 is $500 for B1 service - if mb does not do the service there is no way to reset the reminder that appears every time you start the car. I had oil change and filter done prior to 20,000 since i purchased the car used. don't want to spend $500 for thngs i can do/check. the reminder will go off in 10,000 more miles when the next svc is due.

Thanks for a very detailed information! I have been trying to find this information in the web but no luck. Luckily I have bumped into this site and voila I got everything that I need. I was just trying to confirm if my car is still eligible for this service and indeed it was confirmed by this post.
