Lynn, the p/n's for the cabin and engine air filters are the ones used by
Autohaus Arizona, https://www.autohausaz.com . They offered the best prices I could find for the brand filters I wanted and free shipping...works for me!

1120940004 Air Filter; Set of 2 $30.89

1298350047 Cabin Air/Pollen Filter $19.17

Parts Total: 50.06 w/ ship included

Note: put these p/n's in at the top of the site.

Bob

Bob,

Do you have any problems with the following Cabin Filter manufacturer? at Importec On-Line Catalog

R2060-53914 ACC Cabin Filter Particulate Filter
Hengst IN STOCK $22.10

I'm kinda thinking about replacing the stock air filters with K&N 33-2181 for $102.77/2 each w/ship at Autocom Performance Parts

Lynn,
Hengst is a very reliable brand and I would trust it. As for K&N, I did a search on these air filters and a rather raging debate was underway about the K&N filter elements, having to oil them which in theory traps dirt particles, but was argued that once full, they begin to clog, if you over oil, then you could get blowby on the MASensor, and on and on and on.

For me, since Mann or Hengst are both OE on the SL500's, if they're good enough for MB, then they're certainly good enough for me. I just want to filter the air, not start a science project.

As far as the vendor you mentioned, I don't know anything about them. I chose AutohausAZ simply for the brands I wanted and free shipping.

Have fun...Carlo$ directions are spot on re: the cabin filter change out. Only add would be to remove the rubber moulding that runs fender to fender in front of and behind the box. It makes it easier to get to the clips in the front of the box and lift the lid off. The moulding is friction-fit and just slides up with little force.
