Curious - does the 453 EV still call for changing the desiccant cartridge every two years? If so does anyone know if the part number is the same as the one for the 451? That number is A 789 340 33 00.

I'm happy to report that the 453 desiccant cartridge / air dryer is the exact same part number as the 451. It's just in a slightly different location in the battery pack (right under the driver - left hand drive, of course) Smart Part# A 789 340 33 00 is right on the bottom of it. I don't know why this is so hidden and not accessible in the parts catalog.
Since I have a lease, I have to purchase a new one and show the receipt that it was replaced. I guess they are easy to refill with desiccant beads. Now off to find one for cheap! (Hope less than $50 ATM)
