2005 slk 350 is it maked to extract Motor Oil?

Hi All is the 2005 SLK 350 made to have the motor oil extracted or does the motor oil have to be changed from the bottom of the motor? Thanks for your help I am getting ready to change the oil and can do either but perfer the extraction much easier.,,

There is a drain plug on the bottom of the engine; that's what I use (but others here do use extractors).

Oil extraction

Hi Efair, so you are saying that the 2005 slk 350 is setup for extracting the oil? I am asking this question because some cars are not setup for extracting, because the line does not reach to the bottom of the pan,..

Document AP18.00-P-0101VA "Engine Oil and Filter Change" does instruct to suction the oil out (but adds "only if not drained via drain plug" - doh). So it's safe to do so. Maybe you should measure the volume extracted?

draining Oil

OK Efair, really thanks for the info...this is the plan,,,, I am going to change the oil through the plug (Bottom of motor) I really wanted to have the car level but I am going to do the oil change on my drive on lifts because the car is so low I can't even get the drain can under the car so I will use lifts and see how that goes. Then next oil change I will use the extractor realize that I change the oil every spring this is just a special oil change because I am going on a road trip about 1400 miles. This first oil change is because I've never changed oil in this car just bought it... Next oil change will be next spring and I will use the extractor. check both oil changes and see which one pulls out the most oil.,, Then I will let everyone know the final amounts from each oil change... Again Thanks Efair for helping I am going out and do the oil change right now!!!!

MoMoney,
You can certainly extract the oil from the '05 SLK350. I use a Mighty Vac and take it out through the dipstick tube. If you look at the training materials on the M272 engine (the one you have) it will show how little oil is left when you extract vs. drain. For me it is a wash, as by the time I get mine on the ramps to drain it the angle leaves more oil when I drain it than when I extract. It is more important that you use the correct oil filter IMHO. You need the fleece filter that comes with O rings. Don't let the eBay configurators fool you. I use the Mann HU718/5X (The /4x is the one you don't want)

Best Wishes,

From the MB service CD, it describes the extraction method for the M272 engine (found in the SLK 350). This would be my preferred method if it was considered acceptable, not applicable to the SLK 55 with the M113 engine.
