There was a video on YouTube of a guy doing it on a LHD Panda, he had it done in a few minutes, though it looked still fiddly to slot it in, at least he had no big bar obstructing one of the bolts lol


Oh Fiat, what spanner will you throw in my way next?! Lol

Re: Pollen - Cabin Filter

Having replaced it a few times now on the 2006 Panda, swearing has been reduced.
I remove the bolt from the bottom of the steering column and move the column aside. Then with the clutch pedal held down, the filter goes in a lot easier.

Iím only realising I should have done that now!

On my 2005 Panda I remember taking the glove box and various panels out as much as possible, as well as pulling up the carpet a bit only to find there was no cabin filter on the non AC model. And yet the guy in the motor factors was adamant it was there! I wanted to believe him lol

Re: Pollen - Cabin Filter

Depress the clutch pedal and use a cable tie to hold it down. This makes life easier too.

I had a screwdriver wedged in to do this, but the unease of it possibly coming undone and getting clutched in the face! Lol
