Yes, I guess the main concern is not to give early 124 owners
the idea that they are hidden down in there and can be found by simply pulling half the firewall apart........
They are hard to see even when they are there and many late 124 owner are not aware of them either.
Why Benz put a changeable filter that takes that kind of dis-assembly requirements is beyond me...
Thank goddness they didn't make a cloths dryer !!!!!!
