2002 Mercedes SLK 230
At 40,000 miles, I took a look at the passenger compartment dust filter. I was amazed how dirty it was — apparently replacing it is not on the list of things that are done under Mercedes warrantee.
It’s located on passenger side just below the glove box. Start by removing two phillips screws:
Lower the front of the cover slightly and pull towards you to release it from a tab toward the front of the car:
Slide the two white plastic latches toward the end of the rectangular plastic cover (away from each-other). This photo shows the front latch.
The rectangular cover drops down. You can now pull out the dust filter:
Installation of the new filter is the reverse. Be sure to align the plastic tab at the front of the final plastic cover — before putting the phillips screws back in.
