In the 05 E320, the cabin air filter in under the hood on the passanger side at the back wall... There is a black odd shade square cover that says "air condtioner" "battery in trunk/back"... One nut holds this cover down, then it un-hooks.. The cabin air filter is attached to the underside of this black cover.

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. 1st you need to know why the freon is low. Hopefully it just needs to be serviced. There is a component located in the lf of the engine compartment called a receiver drier. It soaks up the moisture in the freon so the gases can work the way they are supposed to. On this unit there should be 2 switches(I believe they were combined into one switch in 98. 1 switch is a temp switch that operates your electric fans, the other is a compressor cutoff switch. Assuming the compressor is not coming on-take a fused wire and bridge the 2 contacts- If the compressor does not come on at all there is another problem(it is not low on freon. On the condenser there is a high side port(it is the bigger of the 2)By the brake master Cyl.(lf of the engine compartment thereshould be a smaller low side valve in line with the fuel cooler hose. Usually you can hook up a machine to the low port and **** freon in through that port. Assuming you do not have a refrigerant machine. It is very self explanatory on the bottle of r 134a refrigerant which can be purchased at your local auto supply store. I would start with 1 lbs. and add dye with the freon in case there is a big leak. If the system is overcharged it will not cool properly. I believe the system capacity is approx. 2 lbs. Add a few ounces after the first pound until a/c system is cooling properly and the electric fans are also coming on when the system gets to high. If you get a can with a good Gage set on it you should see the high side between 150 and 2000 psi(fan coming on at max. press.) also the low side should read about 35. It is about the temp of the evaporator which is i=located in the dash and the blower blows through this component out through the vents. Hopefully I have been helpful.

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. As long as it is original there is no amplifier other than the head unit itself. The only tricky part is getting the antenna to work with the new head unit. Take a test light and find which wire is hot all the time. That will be your circuit 30 wire(radio memmory). Next turn key to position 2 and find your wire( one is for the antenna and the other is for your radio operation) and isolate those 2 wires,. Find your ground wire and those are your basic connections. There is a fader switch in your center console wood. the head unit sends its power ther and it is dispursed to the appropiate speakers(it is also a common problrm when you have no sound. Try to pop the switch up carefully with a flat blade screwdriver. If not pop up the shifter trim ring and pull up on the console wood. You may have to remove the ashtray. It is a fairly simple install hopefully my advice has been helpful.

pull off rear mirror panel, pull off electric seat adjuster knobs, pull off plastic around door handles. Unbolt top of handle. Pull out light at bottom of door. Unscrew plastic stiker plate and remove. Unscrew lock knob to remove. Then your ready to wiggle and pull the panel up and off, be careful of the area around the door handle, you may even want to pry that area out before you begin.
