At the right side of the engine bay, in front of the fire wall. The W211 forum would probably have some photos showing hot to detach the cover (simple anyway).

The smell could come from the heater core though if water at the bottom has made mildew grow.

Theo you are much more likely to get complete and accurate information if you post down in the W211 forum instead of this one, which is just about general things regarding MB. Detailed information typically comes out of the specific forums for the various chassis designs.

Would you associate the smell with your air conditioning system?

You can also try this stuff called "Frigi-Fresh" that i believe u can buy at any parts store. You just spray into the intake for heater/ac air. kills bacteria and smells pretty nice.
