Q: how to remove air filter on 2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

Does the air filter housing need to be removed from the engine to access the air filter element?
(1) Answer
YES AND YOU CAN REMOVE IT EASILY BY FIRST REMOVING THE PANEL IN FRONT OF IT BY LIFTING IT UPWARDS OUT OF IT'S RETAINING CLIPS. NEXT REMOVE BOTH ACCORDIAN HOSES FROM EITHER SIDE OF THE HOUSING AND THEN LIFTING THE HOUSING STRAIGHT UP. YOU WILL THEN TURN IT OVER AND REMOVE THE BOTTOM HOUSING ON BOTH SIDES TO REMOVE THE FILTERS FROM THE HOUSING. BE SURE TO ALIGN THE MOUNTING PARTS CORRECTLY WHEN REINSTALLING THE HOUSING TO THE ENGINE.
