Inboard of the right wheel about a foot below the top of the engine. Don't look for a spin on cartridge. Look for an aluminum circle about 5" in diameter with two nuts holding it down.

You'll see it once you pull the air box out.

My oil filter cover is only held on my one nut in the middle of the cover.

Good luck.

The oil filter housing is actually sitting right by the passenger side exhaust manifold. The only way to access it is to remove the entire (upper and lower) airbox.

It would be easier to:
1. unbolt the two bolts of the engine cover (near the firewall)
2. unclip the upper and lower air filter housing
3. Remove the upper air filter housing with the hose and the engine cover as an entire assembly
4. Remove the lower air filter housing (just pull up)


You won't miss the oil filter housing after that.

Good luck.

This filter housing actually has one central bolt that holds down the cap, not 2 bolts as previously mentioned. Yes, it is a bit of a pain to access the filter with that engine in that car. That being said, the E420 210 chassis is one of my favorite Mercedes.
