    Passenger air filter-dealer's service event

    Mine was dirty after 22,000 miles and 18 months. Looks like factory foreign object debris including a chemical or abrasion indentation. The same final assembly guys who prep the KC-47 for delivery to the Air Force? Open the glove box, disconnect the elastic band on the right outside by removing it from the hole, push the sides of the glovebox in and hinge it down and out of the way, remove the filter housing door by ignoring the hinge thing on the front and depressing the latch on the right side. Filter's flow arrows point down. I can't see anything else the dealer could do at his 18 month service event except check the brakes.

    Re: Passenger air filter-dealer's service event

    Always interesting to change your own filters. I was worried about driving my 150,000 mile MB cross country and consulted an experienced mechanic. He suggested pulling the transmision pan and examining the fluid by eye and magnet. This tended to reassure me. My XT5 was purchased in December of its model year and had probably spent a lot of time on an outside lot. It had some smells which I took to be chemical!

    I bought my 2017 in June 2018. It had that new-car smell, but it never was as potent as one fresh from the factory. No regrets, tho.
