I appreciate all of the detail. I changed my filter yesterday on a 2015 R172 250. One thing to add is be sure to align the tabs of the cover on the backside (they face the footwell) with their mating slots (see the attached picture). You may need to push the cover toward the back of the footwell to ensure solid engagement of the tabs into the slots. The fit on mine was quite tight.

If you miss engaging the tabs, you probably won't be able to re-engage the slides. The cover will fall off.

I also fitted the filter into the recess of the cover and raised the cover and filter into the housing.

On my to-do list

I'll have to spend less time on this forum because I keep coming across more things to do.

I just ordered the replacement filter.

What a goofy set up. I don’t think I could come up with a weirder cabin air filter design if I tried. I guess the air is double filtered? Is that why it’s folded in half? That would be a good thing I guess?
