They are in the plastic engine cover. Remove the 2 air inlet hoses carfully from the front, and gently pull up the whole housing. It's pushed on in the front, and there are two on the sides (and the attached rubber ring around the mass air). You gently pull up on the front piece, but leave it attached to the rest of the housing (it can come off seperatly, but that's where most people break it). Then pull straight up from the two sides. Cover the mass airflow sensor in the back with a rag to ensure no dust gets into it. (It's that round thing with the electrical connector at the center back of the motor) Flip over the case onto a workspace, and depending on the model, unclip the holding clips to release the filter covers, and/or use the T20 torx driver, and unscrew all the screws. Remove the filters, and blow off the inside to get the residual dirt, and whatnot out, then just replace with new filters, and reverse the removal process for installation.
Don't forget to uncover the mass air sensor before putting the housing back on, and ensure that the rubber ring on the housing is properly secured back around the mass air sensor, it should slip around it snugly, or you might have drivability issues.

very easy just remove both plastic pipes of the air intake, then hold the air filter housing either sides and lift it up, aircleaner asembly is just clip to the engine, to remove the filter you need a star screw driver, there are 8 screws all in all.

both your g class and s class has the same filter housing.

hpe this will solve your problem pare!

Hahaha, kinda. I'm a tech at a dealership.

The air filter on my benz is easier to figure out on your own. It's old.
