    actually its easier.
    you do need a "Suction device" such as topsider or motive fluid extractor (About $50).
    1. Open oil fill cap
    2. Remove red dipstick cap and fully insert suction hose
    3. Suck out oil
    4. Remove filter cap (Rubber strap wrench works best)
    5. Replace filter with new fleece filter and "O" rings (All comes in the oil filter kit)
    6. Tighten filter cap
    7. Add new oil

    is the oil change just as easy with a 2001 Mercedes CLK55 AMG?
