Complementary Modification:

Change cabin air filter

Every 10,000 miles or so, you should change the engine air filter in your Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor. The air filter protects the air intake system, valves, pistons, cylinder walls, and engine oil from dust and debris that can be sucked in under normal operation. Replacement is a snap and should take only take 30 minutes or so.

Begin by opening the hood and having a look at the engine. The air box is located next to the engine cover. It is held in place by six T25 Torx screws.

Remove the air box cover by unscrewing the six screws. The screws will fully loosen but will not come out of the air box lid.

Lift the air box lid off.

Below the lid is a circular filter. There is a small notch at the front of the filter that helps hold it firm against the rear housing.

Remove the old filter.

Clean the air box of any dirt and debris and make sure there is nothing blocking the air inlet to the MAF sensor.

Install the new filter. Reinstall the air box lid and you are done.
