2014 2015 Mercedes SLK 250 CDI Cabin AIR Filter Change / Replacement

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.

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?

I Replaced my Cabin Air Filter

Hope you bought a good filter.

Just finished installing the cabin air filter in my '08 280.

It was a pain but I got it done without destroying anything.

The down side to this project was my choice of supplier and brand of filter to install.

I bought a charcoal impregnated filter, Part # LAK 246, from A**o P***s W*******e. It was supposed to be OEM/quality however it was several rungs below the one I removed. Cheap materials, weak frame and shoddy construction. One of the issues I encountered is that it was limp and very difficult to coax into and button up the housing. It also greatly increased the noise level in the cabin with the blower on a moderate speed.

I have scratched this supplier off my list of approved vendors. I will purchase a good filter from a MB dealership or web site and replace it. Sometimes an education is costly.

Looking back I would have been better off to just blow out the old filter and return the new one - TOO LATE - So much for hindsight.

Dennis
