Re: changing pollen filter

The pollen filter is under a long panel in the bonnet drip channel, passenger side. It just clips in.

Not sure about air con.

Re: changing pollen filter

There's a range of deodorisers and disinfectants you can get for air con systems, some places offer a cleaning service if I remember right.

Dave, does yours have the filter? Mine doesn't seem to...

Re: changing pollen filter

Pete,
Filters are only fitted on air con cars as far as I know.

Re: changing pollen filter

glad that worked for yours...

Now spring is almost here and with the unusually warm weather we seemed to have had up in Manchester I feel inspired to change mine too... My air con smells like dusty old plaster! and the filter is full of dead wasps and moths...

All my local stockists don't seem to be able to get one... did you get yours from FIAT? if so how much ?

Cheers,
Luke

Re: changing pollen filter

Is this the correct pollen filter?

EDIT: That number is for the left hand vehicle.

Re: changing pollen filter

my car hasnt got ac, therefore i had no pollen filter, which is why my air vents are full of leaves. to solve this i used a pair of old tights to cover the air intake hole with wire wrapped round to secure it. it filters the air nicely, costs nowt, and dries quickly to avoid the gusset odour.
