OK, I'll bite...... I'm changing the oil in my C230 Sports Coupe for the first time and I don't see anything that looks like a location for the oil filter. Can someone provide a little guidance?

For a 2002 2.3 engine it is under the cover on the left (driver's) side of the engine, near the dipstick. For a 2003 1.8 engine it is on the left side on the engine, but near the rear of the engine. You will need an MB filter wrench.

I'm still a tad confused. Mine's a 2003 1.8

On the left (drivers) side all the way toward toward the rear end of the engine compartment there's a canister that looks like it could be it. It sits just under a hose that's sheathed in matal braid. On top of it there's a hex drive that looks to be about 22mm. Is that it? The filter is a cartridge, right?
