Cabin Filter Replacement

I replaced the cabin ACC filter in my SLK today. Even though my USA 06 SLK 280 only has the base climate system (not the digitial one) it still had an activated charcoal filter installed. The new filter (Mann) actually came with instructions, just pictures, no text. The images are low resolution and fuzzy.
There are couple of things to watch for:
First - to release the wire-harness connector from the power outlet, you pull the connector sideways not straight back from the outlet.
Second - after you install the filter but before putting the under-dash panel back on, start the engine and put the AC fan on high. Now check around the filter housing. There should be no air leaking from the housing at all (thanks to Dan on another forum for the tip). Getting the filter housing cover seated just right took me 3 - 4 tries before there was no air blowing out of the housing.

Just wondering why you replaced it? Was there an odor or were you merely keeping up the maintenance?

PS. How much was the filter and how long did it take to replace?

and where did you get the filter from? website or store? I've had to change mine over a month ago and I still haven't done so.

I had just replaced the pollen filter in my wife's Volvo and it was really dirty so I decided to do the SLK's too. It wasn't too bad but there were leaves on it. Took about an hour to replace since it was my first time on the SLK. It cost $58.95 from:

per my manual, passenger compartment replace combination filter at 26000 miles or 2 years. how many miles do you have? it should have been taken care of as part of your scheduled maintenance unless you are not at 26000 miles/2 yrs yet or unless 280 model does not have this maintenance schedule.

I've installed a "pre-air filter" behind the battery in the engine compartment to filter out some of the dust and particles that enter the passenger compartment. It is amazing how dirty it gets -- dirt that would otherwise enter the compartment or clog the cabin filter.

For "How To", see the link at:
