dived through the 30mm gap between the clutch and brake bar. After trapping my fingers for a couple of minutes between the filter and its housing I managed to break the plastic filter surround and brute force took care of the rest. I really hope I havent damaged the heater matrix which sits adjacent to the filter. I guess time will tell. However a quick test nearly blew me away. Why the hell do mercedes
Your heater noise problem may have gone away for the moment but I suspect the brushes may be on the way out. My advice have a quick check before the Comm gets buggered then you will need a new motor. Not too difficult to do I found it easier then the pollen filter anyway. httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsv-cl...-problems.html
I removed the pollen filter in my vito yesterday amazing difference the filter wasnt particularly dirty either. Thanks for the how to at the top of the thread easy to follow. Ugly

Hi This is my first submission on this forum. Try this link regarding pollen filter httpwww.mercedes-v-club.detechnikcontent.aspid83&ag3 I hope your german is good... Jacco
Hi I have recently removed the pollen filter - plenty of noise but no air pressure from the heaterdemisteraircon system. The filter is in the top of the dash i.e. under the radio consul. You need to remove the centre consul and tyhe support cross member (13mm spanner) to get access to the filter. Good luck - let me know how you get on Sully

content of them all has been a joke. Like course grains with gaps in between and quite a thin layer. So despite trying to replace I am still with the old filter. Is there a brand that really offers a tick layer of fine activated carbon and not just a token gesture of carbon The one I bought - Hengst according to the picture seems to offer a thick layer of carbon - which is not the case Hengst mercedes-benz

Hi all The pollen filter cabin filter does what it says. As a hay fever sufferer I find the filter a boon since I can travel in the summer sealed up and pollen free. A lot better than being indoors. If you dont have air con and travel with windows open the filter wont be so important. I changed the filter in under 30 mins and I would be a bit quicker next time. This was 3 years ago and air still blowing

Martin to pull it apart as i take it out do I have to work from the center console. Or from the footwell My 110 CDI isint any of the many. The electrics are completely redesigned by mercedes from the factory. The battery and all the fuses are located on the right side. The battery is on the right side ( under the passenger seat) and all the fuses are over the passenger footwell. Ill take some pictures
Every year or 12K miles is good. Theres a set of charcoal filters in there as well. I didnt bother replacing the charcoal filters on my car since I never use the feature. The pollen filters are cheap and easy to replace. The hard part is pulling the glovebox which is secured by four screws and some plastic clips that dont want to let go.
Those are the charcoal filters. The pollen filters are behind the glovebox. You have to pull the entire glove box out to access these.
you have put the cover back on properly when you took the pollen filter out as the cold air comes in through the pollen filter then into the heater matix to be heated.
Hi ya you need to replace the pollen filter cover first as so it is drawing air properly. There is something wrong with one of the flaps in the heater if it is blowing cold out of the bottom and hot out of the top. Have a look at the opperating rods on the heater and check they are working. My E class petrol used to heat up very fast and would blow hot air within a couple of minutes so nothing odd there. Martin
Dont be confused between Cabin Air filter and pollen filter. I bet you never know there are 2 pollen filters in your W220. Run do not walk go to check the pollen filter above your passenger side foot area By the way the Cabin filter is located in the glove compartment. The pollen filter is 93.08 at autohausaz and the filter from autohausaz is cheap China made paper media. Hope this info can give you
I only knew I have 2 types of air filter in my W220. One is the pollen or cabin air filter. The other is the active carbon filter or odor filter. The active carbon filter is control by a switch which I think it open a flab for the passage of income air and a mesh of wire to attract electrons in the air to clean up the odor. Actually cabin filter can trap pollen as the one used in a house system made
Let me also give you some other idea about filters used in my 06 Porsche. There is only one filter but the filter is a mini version of 2 MB filter together. One single filter with layers of felt and active carbon is embedded in the middle. C class MB actually use the same design filter as a Porsche. S & E class owners manual also caution us about the excess use of electrical power if the charcoal filter
The pollen filter is located behind the lower dash panel on the passenger side. To remove firstly turn the plastic fastener which holds the centre air vent in place. Remove the three securing screws on the dash panel under the glovebox and pull the panel away. The pollen filter is then found under the plastic cover with the sliding clips. Take note of its possition so you know which way round the new one goes in.
[)]hi stew Im a new boy here re your pollen filter if you link httphomepage.ntlworld.comalbert.rowe you can see a load of pics on where and how to get at that filter.

Hi ya youve got me interested in how you got to the pollen
Hi Steve Its a real pain but worth doing remove the trim from lower centre consol you will see a 20mm dia rod between two supports (right hand drive ) from the passenger side to the clutch pedal support. Remove this bar and the cover for the pollen filter can be removed. pollen filter can then be pulled out and replaced. Allow an hour or so This has been discussed in previous threads and as Rufus says could be quicker if only I could afford a nice new van...... Regards ZX9

Quote Originally Posted by liquidusculade in the passenger footwell under the big cover there is a small rectangular cover. it has clips on it that slide to release the rectangular cover. this is where the cabin filter should be located. if its not there... maybe its just missing or if you cant find that maybe the c180 didnt have that as an option.. Well according to the mechanic book it should have
If your talking about the cabin air filter then its in the front passenger footwell. That filter gets most of the pollen and dust out of the air con system. There are good writeups if you use the search button. I think alroumi is referring to the engine air filter which is passenger side of the engine bay in a big black box. If theres another filter then Id be interested to know what that is
Just this second done mine. With the instructions posted on here it took about an hour. Without.....it would be impossible to figure out. Who the hell puts a removable part like a filter in such an inaccessable place Ive not replaced the filter and i do suffer badly with hayfever. I would rather rub pollen directly into my eyes than have to go through that again Thanks for the tips.
