1997 Mercedes-Benz C280 Question: oil filter

The oil filter is a "cartridge style" oil filter not a traditional "spin on type filter". The filter is in a housing that has a spin on cap on top of the housing. The housing is on the driver's side rear of the engine compartment.

Pull up the front part of the engine cover [plastic] You'll see it.
It is a cartridge inside the black canister.
