    Cabin Pollen Filter

    Dont' pay Audi's extortionate price of Ł26 for a new filter. Don't even pay Halfords' price of Ł13.50 for one, assuming they've got one in stock or, failing that, can get one in.

    Take the old one out (easier than ever in the B6), put it n a sinkful of hot water laced with washing powder, leave it to soak for an hour. Then clean out the crud (& there'll be lots of it!) with an old toothbrush, refresh the water & washing powder and leave it to soak another hour.

    After that, rinse it off in clean hot water, & stick it on top of the boiler to dry.

    Good as new, and a few quid saved.

    You could always go to GSF or ECP and pay about Ł3.50
