Cabin filter in 06 ML500

Has anyone changed the cabin filter in 06 ML500?
Reading in this forum, seems like it's only accessible through the glove compartment. But I see the filter access door under the hood (passenger side). Is it not possible to change through there? Do I have to take the glove compartment out?
Thanks.

cabin filter

you cannot access the cabin filter in the engine bay, instead you have to remove the glove box, 3 top torx screws, and 1 torx screw on the side (remove side panel of dash), and 3 torx screws at the bottom, then let the glove box hang since the cable of the cd changer is there, unclip the glove box lamp socket, and there you will see the filter cover, there will be two cabin filters to replace/clean.

David123,

After opening the glove compartment you should see this as attached.

Does the side panel of the dash just snap out or is there some special trick to removing it?

Just finished the filter replacement. Very easy really. You'll need a T-20 Torx head for the screws and filters of course.
Remove the Fuse panel on the side of the dash by pulling the front top edge (I'll post pics later) There is one screw facing the front of the ML to remove
Remove the three Torx screws on the top front inside edge of the glove box. Need to have the door open. CAUTION, the one farthest right is different size than the other two.
Remove the three torx screws from the bottom of the glove box. They are located under the dash sow lay on your back and you'll see them.
With the glove box out you will see the cover as shown in #4. To get the cover (#2 in the diagram) just slide it to the left then pull forward. Very easy when I figured it out.
Pull the filters out. I vacuumed in the opening since there was bits still in there.
After inserting the new filters place the cover back on and slide it to the right. Put the screws in making sure the side screw flange is tight against the other half.

Hope this helps

Mike

I appreciate this information. I will let you know how I make out with replacing the cabin filters on my '06 ML350 to put an end to the musty smell when turning on the AC.
