Mercedes Benz A-Class Service – How its done!


The owner of the Mercedes dropped off the A-Class at the Cartisan Preferred Workshop on the specific date and time. Cartisan also offers pick up and drop by the way,  just so you know. The Cartisan Service Adviser took over the car and parked it in the service bay. The Mechanic placed the arms of the two post lift underneath the A-Class so that it could be lifted up. Before lifting the car up, the Mechanic loosened the wheel lug nuts.




Filter Replacements


Thereafter the Mechanic popped the bonnet open and removed the engine cover. He opened the air-box, which houses the air filter, and removed the used air filter. He replaced this with a brand new air filter from Mahle.


The Mechanic then replaced the cabin filter with a brand new one from the Italian manufacturer Free. This filter is located inside the cabin of the A-Class underneath the glove compartment.



Afterward, the Mechanic raised the car up using the two post lift. He proceeded to remove the engine underchassis shield so that he could access the A-Class’s under carriage. Here, he located and unscrewed the engine oil drain nut. After the engine oil was drained out completely, he placed the screw back in its place and lowered the car back to the ground.


In the engine bay, the Mechanic identified the engine oil filter and removed it from its housing. He replaced the oil filter with a brand new one from Meyle, a german spare part manufacturer.



Finally, the Mechanic opened a 4 liter bottle of 5W-40 100% fully synthetic Mitasu Engine oil and poured its contents into the A180d’s 4 cylinder engine block. After adding a further 1.5 liters, the mechanic closed the oil reservoir cap.



Brake Overhaul


The Mechanic removed the 4 wheels from the A-Class to reveal brake rotors and calipers.  The calipers house the brake pads. The Mechanic removed the brake pads from these brake calipers and cleaned them using emery/sand paper. Since the brake pads were in good condition the Mechanic placed them back into the calipers.

After the brake overhaul was completed the Mechanic placed the wheels back onto the car.


The Mechanic signalled to the Cartisan adviser that the service was completed. Thereafter, the Adviser took the Merc out for a test drive to confirm that the service was carried out successfully.
