RE: Class Action Law Suite on K&N Filters

First off K&N make a filter for my 300CE that replaces the factory filter K&N part #E-2867. It comes pre-oiled from the factory and sealed in a plastic bag, so boy i don't think i messsed this up :) They claim that their filters do not effect MAF on any vehicle, however this does not seem to be the case. So who's integrity should we question here??? K&N technitions have not responded so far tech@knfilters.com. Do you actually think they would pay for what they claim is not so... Get a clue.

RE: Class Action Law Suite on K&N Filters

We've had the same problems with people over oiling their MAFS in VW's. You can get a plastic bag and your maf and some 99.9999% pure isopropyl alcohol and you can stick your MAF into that bag, and fill it full of alcohol and let it swish around and "clean" your MAF.

That said, if you do this, you should try to let it dry for at least 24 hrs.

Anything you do is at your own risk.

You could see if the SEMA law could save your arse, but I'm not sure. If you just took the filter out of the bag and didn't attempt to dry it off, then your MAF got oil ont it. Your filter probably came with excess oil on it. My AMSOIL filter was the same way, and I just got a paper towel to blot off the excess.

DC would warranty you if you had something that killed your MAF with a stock filter, not the Aftermarket one.

Sorry. I did not know that it came pre oiled in a plastic bag. I have only used ones that came unoiled and had to do that myself. Some people over oil or spray oil inside, yikes. Some put the filter on right away and drive. Didn't mean to offend.

RE: Class Action Law Suite on K&N Filters

Thanks GriffinMoss at least someone has some usefull input as to solving the problem. And yes, I have pulled the MAF unit which was very slightly coated with the K@N oil being forced into the intake!!! I cleaned the MAF with 99.99999% pure alcohol got it at the chem lab [:)], replaced and it seems to have worked! [8D] Thanks for the tip [;)]

Instead of flamewars, let's try and keep on the topic of Mercedes. Afterall, this is "General Mercedes-Benz", not "Off-Topic".

I bet we will both be [B)] when he wins the case .... only in America.

I still cant get over the woman who won a case where she fell over her own child in a furniture store and won a settlement against the store owner.

What? your going to have to run that one by me again because thats just plain stupid...or it was done on purpose[B)]
