Speak to Mercedes. They eliminated the box and provided a caddy. Seems like it would have been easy to offer a box with a lid as well in that spot...but not an available option.Where I come from, only weirdos from Hollywood have glove "caddies." Real men have a glove box.
This is the correct location of the cabin air filter. The torx wrench located directly below in the floor near the passenger seat is all you need to change the filter. If you put your head in the passenger seat footwell, you should be able to see the black plastic filter box.My understanding, per Van Nuys service Winnie, the cabin filter is located in lower dash region above passenger footwell. Dunno, maybe he was giving me the brush-off? When you find out please post some pictures???
Something similiar to thisCan you elaborate?
Or make something similar. The seat base is a nice steel box. All that is needed is to replace the plastic door with something more solid. There may be a section of the seat base that needs a steel strap to seal up a gap.Something similiar to this
