Just so you are aware, the 300C only has the filter from the factory if you have the Protection Group.300CinLV said:Thanks mileshoover. You are a blessing to this forum. I do have allergies, and was really happy to see that the 300c had an A/C filter. I will let you know how it goes after the filter is replaced.

Perhaps one of our Service Manual owner members can enlighten us on this point.
MagnumFreak said:Could not find a part number on the filter housing. I did look at the installation and if you are comfortable with basic tools installing it shouldn't be that difficult. You would need to order the "particulate air filter housing" (that is the name from the service manual), not sure what the cost is. You would also need to remove your windshield wipers. Not as difficult as it sounds. There is a small plastic cover near the bottom of the wiper blades. Romove the cover and the nut underneath. Wipers should just slide off. Then remove the plastic cover that runs the length of the windshield. There appears to be 6 screws around the permiter of the cover. The filter housing installs with two or three screws.
I am sure the parts counter person can give you a detailed blow up drawing of the filter housing.
