thanks guys.

I check replies with trepidation as I think each one is going to tell me we did something terribly wrong!

Wonderful video. I will use this video to do the oil change on my 300sd. Thank you.

Excellent video.
Possible small improvement to the technique...using a slim wrench on the counter hold for the transmission pan nipple when loosening the flare nut at time mark 2:15.
