Hi Friends- Shouldn't be that hard to locate the cabin filter but it's kicking my butt. Can't find it in the car, and can't find it on the web. Can anyone help?

E Class Diesel 2006

I dug into the area beneath the glove box but did not find it- so if it's there please provide some specifics.

Note- I've located and replaced the non-charcoal filter just forward of the firewall- that's not what I need!

Thanks!!

Joe

It should be in the engine compartment, passenger side by the firewall, black cover 12" x 12" has a 10MM plastic nut that needs to remove to access.

No, that's the one I already located. Please see original post. I'm looking for the charcoal filter.

Thanks-

I have the same car and have changed the same filters as you. I don't think there is another charcoal filter on these...

Correct, the separate charcoal filter existed on earlier MY W211 cars only (only on those with the 4-zone HVAC system).

Only the quad zone optioned cars have the under dash filters. Rear HVAC control does
mean the car has quad zone. I got burned on that one with a W211 and ended up
selling off the filters.

The compartment they fit in will stare you in the face if it there. It is just left of the
glove box attached to the air system housing under the dash.
