    Has it got air-con? If not, it probably won't have a pollen filter.

    Yes it has air con, but unless the air con is turned on all the time the windows steam up. which is why I am trying to locate the pollen filter to see if it needs a new pollen/cabin filter.

    Thank you had a good read of this website and it sound logical especially the quote from the guy from london, but I am still unable to find it. thanks again for your help rep left.

    Have you found the indicator stalk yet? :lol:

    You are looking on the drivers side right?

    if its fitted it could be under the scuttle in the engine bay ?

    It is inside, but the pics are for us spec cars. It should be the opposite side to the glovebox?

    Yes you are right, the cabin/pollen filter is based behind the air plenum. Although every website said it was in the footwell, thought I was going mad. lol. Thanks to you great hotukdeals for all your help once again many thanks, wi8ll complete this job tomorrow as it is dark and raining outside.

    Its under the bonnet by the wiper motors. There should be a acouple of plastic screws holding a grate in place.

    Yes you are right, I undid the 2 screws to lower the wiring loom and can see the filters at the back, I undid 3 bolts to remove the cover to gain access but I think there may be another bolt behind the battery. but I can see them so will have another go tomorrow in daylight when its not raining. Big thanks for your help.

    P.s were do I buy the filters cheap. lol
