Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Servicing The Supercharger Oil

One of the most common overlooked service items, is replacing the supercharger oil. The gears of the supercharger spin very fast and need proper lubrication and cooling. Because it spins so fast, it requires a special type of oil: Mobil Jet Oil II (Synthetic Jet Engine Oil).

This oil is not that widely available to customers and also not very cheap. I used a 150ml syringe with some hose to extract the oil and fill it up again. It holds 150ml maximum, but you can never get all the oil out unless you remove the supercharger. I removed about 130ml, and put back the same amount in fresh oil.

Extracting the old oil
Used a plastic containter to hold the oil in, which makes it a lot easier
