    Charcoal Filter airflow direction?

    Yesterday I changed the charcoal filters on my W220 S500. The filters I removed were Purflux (AHC394-2) and the airflow arrows printed on them pointed toward the passenger door. The new filters are UFI (54.141.00) and the airflow arrows pointed towards the centre of the car. Both these filters...

    Loads of carbon in oil filter cavity

    I changed my engine oil today and got a unwelcome surprise that I'd not seen before in 8 years of ownership of my W202 series C200. I'd drained the sump, then when I unscrewed the oil filter cap, oil came out over the top and ran down the engine. That chamber is normally near enough empty when I...
