Every 10,000 miles or so, you should change the cabin air filters in your Mercedes-Benz. You should change it sooner if you live in a dusty climate or do a lot of driving on non-paved roads. The cabin air filters helps protect the air that you breathe inside the car. Replacement is a snap and should take less than an hour. If you park your car under a tree or it has been a while between air filter changes you may want to put a rag down under the filter to catch any of the dirt or debris that might fall onto your carpet.

The cabin air filter is located in the passenger side footwell.
