This filter gets replaced with each FSS service on my 98 E430. Can this filter be replaced by "Average Joe" with average tools? Where is it located? If so, maybe a feature in the DIY section would be nice. Thanks.

I replaced mine twice already. There are four screws for the glove box, they have to come out. After that give the glove box a good tug, I was afraid at first because I really had to pull hard. Once it came out you will see where the filters go. The filters cost about $35.00

P.S. Be sure to get all of the screws, it may be more than 4..

We stock OEM quality MANN filters.

The charcoal filter is:

Do these often!! They will save you the headache of overheating the blower regulator and having to replace it.

There are two filters? Who knew? Which one is 210 830 10 18?

To cut down on confusion get that Silver E430 (is it Bill Wood's) you always use and do a DIY feature replacing both the pollen filter and the charcoal climate control filter. I am trying to save money on this type of routine maintenance. Thanks.

Kevin-
The 210 830 10 18 is the new part number for the 210 830 00 18. It's the same filter we just have it stocked under the old number.
Something else for the Webmaster to fix....

Good suggestion on the Cabin filter DIY. We'll see what we can do.

Does the W126 1984 300SD have a similar filter?

I have removed all screws on the glove box: Two screws besides the light, two inside bottom, and ALL facing the passenger. How hard do I have to pull on the glove box? I noticed there are 4 tiny rectangular marks to the right of the inside. Is it some kind of special tools that will provide more leverage to remove? Do you grab the glove box door and pull it hard? I am afraid of breaking the hinges.

Thanks

I've found that a long plastic wedge or screwdriver works good. Remove the lamp and unplug. Insert the wedge through the opening towards one side and pry down while pulling at the same time. There are tabs on the top of the box that keep it tight behind the dash. Do both sides and it slides right out. Then slide the white lock up and remove the access door to the filters. Replace them in the same position. You'll be amazed at how dirty they are.

Mercedes Shop, I made this suggestion a while back and I still have not changed my filters.

Can we get a DIY on the charcoal/dust filters found in the dash behind the glove box for the W210. Thanks.

Yep, we still owe you that...

One of these days we WILL do the cabin filter article. I think it was about a year ago that we last discussed this. Unfortunately, it has never made it to the top of the to-do pile.

About all I can do for now is to repost these pics:

How frequently should the dust and charcoal filters be replaced?
I think I know the dust filter is every 30,000 mi. and is relatively inexpensive. Not the case with the charcoal one (which I never turn on . . .). How often should I replace the charcoal filter?

I believe that Mercedes recommends replacing the charcoal filter every 60,000 miles at a cost of around $200.

I rarely activate the charcoal filter so I have not changed mine yet. The Parts person at the local Mercedes dealer suggested that I replace my charcoal filter (at 60,000 mi.) otherwise I will risk getting bacteria in the car. I did not buy this because by his logic every Mercedes without the charcoal filter must have bacteria in it.

I will replace my charcoal filter when it can no longer get the smell of skunk from the car. No kidding, when I approached a dead skunk on the road, I activated the charcoal filter and within 5 sec. I no longer smelled skunk (note the windows and sunroof must be closed for this to work).

w210 glove box removal

Dear webmaster: I am trying to get the glove box out on my 210 e300d. I have removed the 4 screws facing me and also found 2 more on either side of the light fixture which access vertically through a hole on each side of the light.

1: are these screws involved with the removal or should I replace them first. (the two vertical ones)
2: I am unable to decide how to remove the light lens cover as it appears likely to break if not done properly.
3: the glove box appears to be held upper cental area but can be slid from side to side a little. Suggesting that there are tabs on it.
4: What to do about 1,2,3. and/or how to get the whole thing out correctly.
Thanks, Harvey
