Master Maintenance Checklist
« on: 15 March 2021, 06:56 PM »
Hello,

As a new 450 SEL owner I briefly looked at the service manuals in the technical area of the W116.org forum. Is that the best place to find a checklist of all the maintenance items on a w116, or is there anything else that is more straightforward? I was thinking of transferring those to a spreadsheet.

Thank you! :)

Service Manuals 00 section for listing of Maintenance Service sheet, print it out and check it off as you do the item. It's everything you need to do to the car. 1974 below

It’s interesting that the oil change interval is 10,000 miles..

The oil change interval is 5,000 miles. There is a lubrication service between each Maintenance service.

No. It's the 200 - 600 miles post-delivery service.
