RE: AC Air Filter

Yes, Look under and you will see in the middle of cover the the locking pin unsnap it then, you have to take this bottom cover under the dash board passenger side. To do that you have to remove the two Philips screw then let if fall but watch out the 12V power connector this will be still attach.

then once the cover removed, unsnap the plastic clip holding the cover like you see in the picture.

once the filter cover removed let the dirty filter fall and replace with the new one.

reinstall it in reverse of course and you are finished.

Also you can ask any question at the W163 topic. screen.

Good luck

Hi Jim, could you send a pic or schematic as to where to look for the filter? I'm unclear where to find the pin to start the removal? etc.?
Thanks in advance
