Somewhere along the way there was a comment that the filter may be horizontal, but it is indeed vertical.
Anything I post with photos will always refer to the thread topic and/or noted in the post.Thanks- I saw the list but wasn't sure which car supplied the photo. In any case there is a wide variety of cabin filter designs in the MB product line.
I find owing MB products to be overwhelming. Now I have to say that in the 1970's era I sold manufacturing equipment to MB* and visited their plants in Germany. I don't remember the exact year but it was in the older style swing-axle days. I managed the then Magneform division of Maxwell Labs and MB used Magneform to crimp steel bands onto flex-joint boots. Strangely, Maxwell is now owned by Tesla.Anything I post with photos will always refer to the thread topic and/or noted in the post.
As for "variety of designs and changes", that's an understatement - lol - it can vary within the same year due to a plethora of uncontrollable events such as supply chains, parts availability, sub contracts to name a few. Overall, it is consistent but as many members have repeatedly said, "What were the engineers/designers thinking...?"
