How long between oil changes.... . Does it depend on mileage, time since last service? What's involved..?
Cheers

Officially, it's only once at 40k, no time limit and not repeated.

I thought originally on 5g it was 'sealed for life' until they go bang:eek:, I think MB did update service schedule after a few warranty claims..:doh: and changed it to ONCE at 40k...which is then back to 'sealed for life' until it goes bang:doh::doh::doh:

Mine was done by the dealers @ 40kish & I did it again earlier this year. In fact I serviced it as I changed the fluid ,filter, Pilot bush , electro plate & fitted Sonnax uprated valve pressure kit. Use Fuch4134 from Opie oils for a good price.
