    Need to change the pollen filter. Where is it and where to get it from? I noticed the driver wiper has a few nicks in it and is causing marks when sweeping. Will l need to go to Dudi or will halfords have just as good? Cheers.

    free fitting at Audi, plus they'll clean your car. i know some of you are anal about that kinda stuff, so i'll say "at least they'll hoover it" instead.

    my mate paid more for his wipers on his Ford Fiesta from Halford's (with no fitting) than i did to get mine fitted at an Audi main dealer

    Pollen filter is hidden behind the glovebox from underneath, you need to get your head underneath in the passenger footwell with a torch to assist, you will need to unscrew 2 plastic screws to remove the small thin foam cover in the footwell, look for a slim plastic trim panel that slides along to the left or right iirc, then pull the filter out, reverse fitment, job done.

    Get the wipers from audi & fit yourself, takes 2 minutes & assured of quality.
