I'll let you know. Does your CLK leave a puddle of water when parked?

I took a look today after parking.

Water drips in two puddles under the car - more or less in line with the side mirrors. Without getting underneath and removing the plastic covers, I can't see the a/c condensate tubes....

There are 2 tube above the tranny. I would remove the side capets but I don't know how.

There is absolutly no water under my car after driving.

Keyhole, does you AC have the awful smell?

It's too foggy and cool to use the A/C here in San Francisco... so don't know if there is a puddle or not. But am sure there would be if it were hotter!

Well I pulled off the side carpet and I found the drain line, I haven't done anything yet because the wife was home. My plan of action is to cut the rubber line and stuck a shopvac to it and stuck out all the crap in the heater case, and re connect the hose using a piece of metal and hose claps.

She would be all over my a$$ if I took here car apart and she found out.

I have the same problem of stinky ac at startup...

The smell is more apparent when the car has been parked in the sun for a while like when i start it after work at around 4 PM...

Still think condensate not draining?

Thanks!

Sorry - I'm a bit late on this, due to 'inattention' ....:)

No - no smell from the a/c. But I always get a 'fishy' smell from the cat at start-up, and I wonder if that air is being drawn from the cat/exhaust by your a/c.

Do you start your car in your garage, or an enclosed area?

:thumbsup: Dang!!! This old thread is still alive and kickin' with over 375 hits!!!!

The 06 CLK 350 does NOT have a charcoal filter below the glove box, BUT

the 06 CLK 500 DOES HAVE the charcoal filter!!!

The charcoal filter will not harm the A/C system... it filters the smell from circulating through the A/C and the cabin. Just remember to change it or the air flow will be reduced.

Carbon pollen filter is under the glove box in 2006 CLK500 (W209)

1) Turn latches (arrows) on recirculating air filter housing in passenger foot well 90° counterclockwise (open). To close during Installation, turn 90° clockwise.
2) Remove cover with recirculating air filter (2) towards bottom.
3) Open recirculating air housing.
4) Remove recirculating air filter.

NOTE : The recirculating air filter cannot be cleaned, it always must be replaced.

5) Installation is in the reverse sequence

Hi All...... glad to see this thread still alive!!!

So the cabin filter on top of the battery can be of two versions... paper filter and paper charcoal dust filter.

The charcoal dust is just that... a light coating of activated charcoal on top of the white paper filter.

It can be found on eBAY by searching for the vendor keenanmotors4311 , he has the OEM version for $32, but there are other vendors for less ... down to $20 for non-OEM.

:)

Great thread, ok it seems this filter thing is pretty confusing lol, i thought i was buying the charcoal filters for underneath the glove compartment (i checked i do have them), but got the one for under the battery.

Vehicle Radiator Engine Auto part Car

Well now I have a new one for there, looks like it needed a change anyways.
