yes you need to replace the filter and desinfect the system. I had the same problem on both of our B classes. Specially when you parkyour car outside overnight or drive in a lot of rain. If the filter still looks good or is new just desinfect the system.

You mean the air conditioning components? Someone with the WIS could show the parts and numbers.

Ressurecting thread...

Cabin filters - I guess some cars have the filters available with and without activated charcoal/carbon I guess for some to save money. Do our B's come with carbon filters from factory?

Where you guys/gals getting them? Any place other than dealer?
