R 320 CDI Air filter change (vid)

Ok,

I am a newbie and my R 320 CDI only has 48K on it but seeing that my wife ( its the car she has been driving for the past 2+ years) put gas in her diesel. I thought I would take a crack at some basic maintenance. With your help here at Benzworld I have done the oil and filter change, now the air filter.

A short rap up. Having worked on my Golf TDI, My Tacoma ( changed out the air intake to a K&N intake) and my 1965 Ghia, I have some "shade tree" mechanic ability. BUT let me tell you this Air filter change out was close to the toughest thing I have done. But after getting the old filters out ( really quite dirty) I am happy I tackled it.

Removing the engine compartment divider and knowing the correct tools
( 13 mm socket, E8 Torix socket, E 10 Torix socket, T20 Torix (for the air filter box) and a flat blade screw driver) is key to the extraction of the filter boxes and then the filters.

Here is a link to the 26 min. video... It is a pretty big file (311 mb) so I would advise high speed connection for viewing. MobileMe Gallery

Thanks. I look forward to any feed back positive and other.

fantastic video - thanks for sharing. Just starting to remove the airboxes on a gl 320 which has the added fun of an engine brace in the way.
