    Under the glovebox, there should be a thin polystyrene cover. Take that off and there is a long retangle shaped plastic cover. Take that off and pull the pollen filter out.

    They do get really really minging if they have never been changed before - did mine last year but might do it again before the warm weather starts (if we ever get any!!) - quite cheap too from Audi so it's well worth it!

    can anyone put a pic up of where the pollen filter should be? i have had the glove box out many times in the past and not noticed any covers back there (ok i wasnt looking for it last time but it would save time if someone showed a dumb noob the exact place to look)

    thanks
