SLK 230 2004

Was getting funny odor in cabin. Replaced filter and smell vanished.

The replacement is similar to this helpful post for the 350, but different enough to make another post.

I replaced filter with this Bosch Charcoal Air filter

Tools needed:

Phillips screwdriver

Instructions:

1. Go to passenger side

2. Locate the back panel with several holes

4. Then the left...

5. Gently let the front panel swing down

Locate the cabin filter cover on the left. (it is a slim rectangle closest to center console) Slide the front clip off towards you and the back clip off away from you. Be sure to hold the cover when removing the 2nd clip.

Remove cover and gently guide/ pull the filter out.

Remove air filter noting its position. Replace with compatible filter

Installation is reverse of removal.

Enjoy.

I just finished doing this and used this as an amazing guide. One helpful hint: after you take the cover of the cabin filter off, be careful of falling debris. The moment i took it off a mountain of dust and debris fell onto my face.:banghead:

Thats nearly nothing compared to what I had. The old owner probably never changed the one in my car, hence why I put up the little warning :p
Cheers!

You must be a contortionist to get your head all the way under there. Changed mine yesterday but didn't have your experience.
