    I've just been checking through all my documentation & service bills etc and it looks like my dust/pollen filter has never been changed !.
    Is this a different filter to the air filter which sits on the engine somewhere?
    How would you go about changing the dust/pollen filter?
    Thanks

    Different filter altogether. It's by the battery somewhere.

    Yes top right of the engine bay, the only tool you may need is a flat blade screw driver for some of the clips, I think I used my key. only takes a couple of min. After 2 years my filter was horrible.

    Thanks guys. I'll have a look tomorrow. Am I correct in saying that when I have the bonnet open and looking at the engine its located in the top left hand corner ?

    I changed mine a couple of months ago, if its the same, its on the right hand side (looking from the front of the car) right at the back of the bay and tucks under below the windscreen. Its a very simple and cheap job, just make sure the filter is pushed down into the housing properly. I sprayed some anti bac spray into the system while it was out. Hope this helps.
