Ive got a 2016 CLS550 and its time for service B. I schedule a service appointment with the dealership near me (Pembroke Pines, Florida) and ask for an estimate of what it would cost. Service Advisor tells me aprox $1300. Nope, i dont think so :smash:

Has anyone else done service B, and if so where are you located and about how much did it cost?

Anyways, I just now purchased via Amazon...
--oil filter (oem part 276 180 00 09 - based on the part that was listed on my service A from dealership)
--mityvac 7201
--mobile-1 5w-40 formula M motor oil (approved for MB 229.5)
--engine air filter (oem part 278 094 00 04)
--cabin filter (compatible with oem part 2128300318)

as soon as it all arrives, it looks like i'll be doing most of service B myself. i'll update this thread to let you all know how it went.

does anyone know if oil filter part 276 180 00 09 is indeed a fleece filter?
can anyone recommend the correct oil filter wrench to use for CLS550?
service B includes "Clean water cowling to ensure proper drainage"; any advice on doing this?

any advice on DIY maintenance is more than welcomed (oil change, replace engine air filters, replace cabin air filter, etc).

Hi mate. I like this thread though I have a CLS 350. I would still be interested how you get on. I don't know what the service is and what it entails. Hopefully more than an oil change lol. I've just had oil and filter change, coolant change, 6 new glow plugs, fluid levels checked, small service, turbo induction seal renewed and it came in at £420.
The mityvac system you have looks the business. I wonder if I could change my oil using one of those, I assume down the oil level tube, instead of jacking up etc.
Interesting. I hope you get some answers.

Sorry, i never did come back to update this thread. but i'll do so now

I was indeed able to do most of Service B myself.

the motor oil, engine air filter and cabin filter mentioned above were indeed the correct part numbers.
i think the engine oil filter mentioned may have been incorrect so everyone should double-check that part number.

the mityvac did indeed allow me to pull up the oil through the oil level tube. pretty straighforward and I didnt have to jack up the car :biggrin:

cool! Did you learn on your own (tutorials, youtube videos) or how did you manage to do everything, any different tools or special equipment that was required compared to other vehicles?

To learn I mostly watched YouTube. Many YouTube videos.

I thought i made a note of which videos i viewed but unfornately I dont have that list. You can easliy find them by searching youtube for "CLS oil change", "CLS sevice indicator reset", "CLS cabin filter change", "CLS engine air filter change".

Also you can replace the CLS in those search strings above with E550 and you will get additional information (this is because E550 and CLS550 are very similar)

The only special equipment I used was the MightyVac (this was used so i can pull the motor oil from the engine bay instead of going underneath the vehicle and draining it). The MightyVac can be purchased on amazon for aprox $100 (Mityvac Fluid Evacuator/Brake Bleeder, Pneumatic)
