Have you the correct socket for the oil filter housing.?

It was an 84mm 14 flute type for mine. My strap wrench wouldn't move it!

Well almost right , best to take oil information from all angles and report all findings .

Is MB spec the best for your application , no , can a more mundane spec oil performance profile somehow be created beyond spec , yes .
