The front cover snaps off. Next, but I haven't tried it yet but from a previous post, the whole back assembly lifts off. Then upside down, use a torx bit to remove the cover and gain access to the filters.

1. Remove the (darker) black pastic cover (with the AMG logo) by pulling up.
2. Carefully detact the two air inlet tubes from the front of the car. Then lift straight up on the black piece (further back). This is held in place by latching into rubber pads.
3. Turn air cleaner assembly over and remove the 15 (or maybe more I can't remeber) Torx screws to split the cover.
4. Replace air cleaners and put back in reverse order.
