Hi all,

My dads W211 220 CDI is due a service soon.

It has option 581 fitted so it has Thermotronic Climate Control with the extra climate control's for the rear passengers.

I am a bit confused looking in the service booklet stating Dust Filter and Charcoal filter, does my car have a standard Active Charcoal Cabin/Pollen Filter or does it have a "normal" filter and another separate charcoal filter?

I've emailed a MB Dealer and they have stated that my car only has a Cabin filter but didn't delve into any further.

I've also emailed All German Parts and the very helpful chap called Jason came back with this:

"I have checked the parts on official Mercedes Benz Electronic Parts Catalogue and produced a quote for the Mahle filters based on the information therein. It would seem strange but correct that the car has a standard paper type cabin filter rather than a carbon version. Mercedes EPC does give a number for carbon but I am informed this is for left hand drive only and that they are different shape"

I have no reason to doubt what both the MB Dealer and Jason at All German Parts have said, I just want extra clarification from you guys if possible :)

Many thanks :)

Seems strange that you are still asking?

Especially if the dealer and a german parts specialist have both agreed with each other.

Just saying.

Haha well as stated both MB and All German Parts have said only one filter in it.

Even if it is a standard paper one it is better to use a carbon activated one. Many companies do an upgrade carbon filter.
Thanks for the link, Jason did say Mahle do list a Carbon one but it wouldn't fit my car as it is listed for LHD cars.
