Changed the oil 229.51 and oil filter, then the airfilter and went into DAS to initialize the new filter.
Thanks so much for the detailed instructions and especially the pictures! I saw this last year and have been looking for it over the past few weeks. It's a mod I will be doing forthwith.The "Under Dash" photo shows the area under the steering wheel including the Black Plastic AC duct.
The next photo shows the 'sticky pad' I placed between the cup holders to hold my phone. I took the photos with the phone so I can't show a picture with the phone in place. The Lightning connector comes up here to connect to the phone.
The last photo shows the cable before installation. It was about $22 at Office Depot.
This entire installation required zero holes or modification to the vehicle. It can be removed just by pulling the cable out from one end to the other.
I love that I can easily connect my phone to CarPlay in a location that is easier to get to, allows me to access the phone while connected, and leaves the USB port built-into the lower dash for the passenger to use without having to access the center-top dash compartment.
What he means by DAS, is the factory scanner software used by Mercedes. When changing the air filter, you can "adapt / reset" the air filter. By doing so, it will reset the "air filter contamination level".What do you mean by DAS to initialize new filter?
Xentry or other? Can it be done via the dashboard controls (like full maintenance reset) or only with scanner software?
