    CLK oil overfill

    Brother topped up his oil on his '99 CLK 320, he did not overfill & it was below the MAX level. Upon driving, it says 'Oil overfill, drain oil' on his dash display. As hes now on the Motorway and cannot do this, is anything likely to happen?

    Oil Overfill?

    I checked the oil last at the weekend using the buttons on the dashboard and it said to add an extra 1 liter of oil. I did and now as I'm driving it flashes warnings telling me I have excess oil and to remove some. If it is overfilled at all it can't be by much so how much damage could this...
