Air Mass Meter '99 C280

My check engine light was intermittently lighting up so I took it to the dealer for the diagnosis. They said it was the Air Mass Meter and it would be about $550 to replace.

Can I do this service myself? If anyone has any information on replacing the Air Mass Meter, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Yes a 10 yr old can do it. Order the part online at benzbin.com, and install it yourself. It is right on top of the engine. You do the job in about 1 minute. Seriously.

Is it having any problems running?

No problems running now.

The light is intermittent, so should I replace just to be safe or wait for the light to stay on all the time.

Further, the car has 33k on it (1999); what service should I have done? I really drive it sparingly, but I don't want problems to creep up.
