SOURCE: Servicing my Mercedes C200
Gearbox -> Synthetic automatic transmission fluid
Differential -> Either 90W engine oil or 85W90 gear lubricant
Engine oil -> Not really sure of the weather in Uganda but I take it it stays pretty warm all year long, probably 20W-40 or 15W-40 synthetic
Spark plugs -> Well there could be a long debate over that... if you're having engine performance/missing problems i'd try replacing them right away but with any gasoline ignition system i try to replace the plugs about once a year... plug wires about 5 years... regardless of condition. In my case, i don't usually go for expensive "platinum" or whatever kind of plug that costs about 10 times as much and usually don't do much of a difference... I'd rather buy reasonably priced spark plugs and replace them regularly, and get a much better result and more money in my pockets... because even if you did buy the expensive ones you usually end up replacing them at about the same time you would have the cheaper ones, with the same effect

Change the brushes in the heater motor.
Common fault on Merc Vitos and sprinters.
Brushes are on ebay. Search for "heater brushes"

A little acrobatic exercise for you............
1/ Put the Key in the # 2 position .
2/ Hit the "MI" button on the dash twice .
3/ Put the Key in the # 0 position (key out position) within 10 seconds of hitting the MI Button .
4/ Press the MI Button and turn the key into the # 2 position at the same time. There will be a confirmation noise .
5/ Release, Smile...and be on your way, your all done. !
