76mm 14 flutes is the one I bought. Search for "76mm oil filter tool" and you'll find dozens.

If you go to this eBay site and check compatability it will tell you that is not suitable.

Jeez, did you search for the most expensive one on eBay or something?!

I just checked my eBay history. The actual one is no longer listed, but it was 14 flute 76mm. eBay took me to "similar items" here: https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/sis.html...72.m2749.l2658

Sometimes the eBay car part selection gets is wrong with the WG CRD.

Ha, no, that was the only one that had a vehicle compatibility check thingy. Given the 76mm 14 flute suits many of the Mercedes models I though there was a good chance it would fit but I'm still learning about the WG so wasn't sure that was the right spec. AND eBay is always right yeah??

Thanks for the links, the savings will pay for the beer while I do the service.

The oil filter tool is actually 74mm 14 flute, it also suits the Mercedes M113 engine series.

Here is an eBay link to the brand i have, even though the picture shows the incorrect size.

Yep, this would work, plenty of others that will do the same job too.

Interestingly, I just checked the tool that I have been using. It has stamped onto it "74/76" then a horzontal line and "14" under it. Seems for the cheaper tools, the 76 & 74 are the same. Mine certainly works. I have used it multiple times.

Supercheap have the Penrite Diesel HPR 5w40 10 litres for $79.99 currently so will pick some up in a day or two. Have ordered my filter socket from eBay as well. Will look to locate the Mann filter soon. Getting there.

Hey guys. So the Mann filter is a bit of a challenge to get in Brissie. Jeep want to sell me a Mopar unit which they say is OEM for $33. I did find a Mercedes Van service dept over at Eagle Farm which sells them for around $11 so a much better option. Note you need to give Mercedes an engine number for them to source the correct oil filter as they don't list them by who makes it or what model it is. (Seems a 611 engine brings up the Mann HU718/1. Note they don't have a "K" on the end of it). Just wondering if anyone has purchased one of those on offer on eBay? I found this one; https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MANN-Oil...yR-t#vi-ilComp and obviously having it delivered to my door makes life easy. Any chance it may not be genuine?
