    Hi all,
    New here and not yet a Mercedes driver myself. I occasionally help my friends using my growing knowledge of servicing and car maintenance, I'm not an expert but it's always good to learn right?
    Being a family man and now very busy, my friend has let his C280 get a bit tired.

    This weekend I'd like to help him out by doing a service (Oil, plugs, filters etc)
    I service my own car ('85 BMW 520i) which is pretty simple. I wondered if you guys could point me in the right direction for a service guide and parts.

    Car: Mercedes C280 auto
    Year: 1999

    Thanks guys :thumb:

    If ever there was a reason to change the G/box oil & filter I'd say it's now.

    Do a search here, I'm sure there's plenty of info on those boxes.


    P.s. I'd change the key batteries, always worthwhile for little cost.
