I got to nosing around my 1995 E320 this evening and found the A/C dust filter. It is a pain to get to (Honda has them beat in this regard). The car has 88,xxx miles on it and the filter is filthy. I did not have any to replace them with so I just tried to clean them up some. Just for everyones information the MB P/N that I got off of them (there are two) is 124 835 00 47.
Be careful when removing the plastic pieces that have to be removed to access them not to break any of the tabs off.

You're correct...they are a pain to get to!

Benzmac showed me how to change these on my wife's '95 E420. They looked like they were the original ones from the factory. They were TOTALLY BLACK with dirt. The new ones really made a difference.

I took a bunch of pictures and will do a DIY article at some point.

By the way, we sell these filters in PartsShop. Be sure to order 2.

DIY Info?

Is the filter that you guys are referring to located directly below the windshield wiper motor? If so, I think I need to replace mine.

Here's the deal:

Last Saturday I parked my car and shut it off before the wiper finished its downward return stroke, causing it to stop in the middle section of the drivers side of the windshield. I didn't think much about it then and left it. Well, we had a small snow and ice storm come through on Sunday and it froze the wiper in that position. My wife went out on Tuesday (didn't drive it on Monday) and started the car to warm it up. I come out 10 min. later and smell the distinct odor of burning electronics. I start hunting around and discover that the wiper motor is attempting to return the wiper to the idle position but can't thanks to the snow. I quickly cleared the windshield and the wiper was freed. Long story short (I know...too late) the wiper is still working but the smell of the burnt motor is still coming out, especially when the Heater is running. I looked around and there appears to be a filter of some kind that is visible from the engine compartment located just under the wiper. If that is the A/C dust filter, I'm wondering if the smell of the burning motor is trapped in it and it's being distributed throught the system when the A/C/Heater is running. If so, I need to change it.

Therefore, did you ever do the DIY on the replacement and if not, how hard is it to do and how much is the filter?

Also, if you think I'm barking up the wrong tree here on what's causing the smell...I'm all, eyes.
