In case anyone is interested I was going to replace my cabin air filters on my 2008 ML350 via the Glove Box Removal way (Yikes) but I realized there is also access via the engine bay so I went for it and it worked out for me.
Not so bad at all. It is quite tricky though and some "forcing" of the second right-side filter part was needed but once in place it mostly straightened out and was fine. Any crunching was right against the side so still tight.

Mercedes OEM Part#: 164 830 0218 64 (Total of two pieces in box)

nice pics!

This is acutally the standard way that MB workshops do the change. You can imagine how less time consuming it is after a few trys. This way they can charge 30minutes for filter change, but it takes them less than 5! Anyway, thanks for the post.

GREAT POST. I did it the way you described, and it took 10 min. I skipped the 1st step and just removed the the clips, and then installed the filters. Worked great. I also installed the engine filters following the DIY section, and that took 20 mins.

Outstanding

Used this quick replacement method and it worked very well. The minor disfiguring, by forcing of the right filter (after initial placement of the left filter), quickly re-established its factory shape with little encouragement by me. Entire process took < 5 min. including wiping off of dust from intake side of duct work with Lysol "Crisp Linen".

Bluetec (Diesel Engine)

Does anybody know how to remove the air filters on the ML350 Bluetec engine? This is quite a bit different from the regular gas engine. The air filter boxes are mounted on the side of the engine block and don't look easy to take off. :eek:

Diesel is totally different from that video. You start by removing partitions in the firewall to gain access to the air cleaner boxes. Not a hard job, but would recommend getting instructions from startekinfo.com.
