    Hi,
    Can someone advise on how I access the pollen and air filters on my 2002 1.4TDi. I can see the airfilter box positioned low on the driver side front corner, however Im not sure what needs to be removed to access, such as the plastic shield under the wheel arch?
    Same applies for the pollen filter, Ive been told its inside the car, but where?
    Dont want to go taking things apart till I know what I,m doing.
    Thanks
    Sanny

    Pollen filter is usually under the plastic splash guard under the windscreen although it's probably in the boot on an A2.

    the pollen filter is in the passengers footwell under the glove box. slide the plate off and there is a service access pannel that the clips slide off of and the polen filter pulls down, they are a pain in the arse.

    as andy mac said the air filters are in the o/s/f splash guard area under the car, jack the front up, undo the undertray in that corner and with a posidrive screwdrive undo two screws and air filter drops out easier said that done without a ramp!
