Air Filter change on SLK R172 Gas

Hi all,
because I searched for a long time without finding answer I finally made my own tuto with pics

First remove the motor "cap" to have more space.

This is where the air filter box is on a gas motor

You first need to loosen the clamp screw (1) and remove the pipe from the box. You can then remove the 3 screws for the box (2)

Empty box

New KN filter

You know just have to follow back the steps...

And voila

Bonne route !
