If it is how do i get it out?? :uhm:
 
Ya thats it, im sure it just lifts up and out, cant remember tho...
 
Ahh yes, cheers fellas. I was trying to pull the whole plastic thing out not just the filter and surround, so yes two clips and its out.

Just washed the car and there was a bit of water lying in front of where the pollen filter is, is this normal?

Christ we get the message lolol

Maybe the rubber seal that sits over the bulkhead wasnt located properly!!
 
While you are swapping it, clean out around the side of the casing, leaves etc.

These can block the drain holes and if blocked water can end up taking the other route into the car and out into the back passenger footwell

Water usually leaks down the windscreen and under the black plastic 'cover' under the wiper arms. This 'cover' is notoriously easy to dislodge and even more difficult to get it seated properly so that water doesn't just run down the screen and into the pollen filter. Good luck - it took me about half a dozen attempts to get it to fit properly - and almost resorted to sealing the cover to the windscreen with some silicone sealant.

Are you sure? i can say it again if you want :think:

I dont think it was going under the plastic although i'll have a check. I noticed that the little rubbery 'flap' type thing was just diverting the water down to around the pollen filter, is that right or is it supposed to stop water from getting down there altogether? I only noticed one drain hole which seems to go down into the wing. I cleared a few leaves but it was tight down there and my hand was getting claustrophobic. :applaus:

I also went down to Halfrauds to get one of the anti bacterial nice smelling cleaners as dicussed in This Thread but couldn't find anything like it.

Check with the monkeys...um.. I mean the staff. It's made by Comma, & they usually keep it as a stock item these days, along with a range of pollen filters & re-gassing kits.
 
the anti-bac kit - can you use it even if you do not have air-con? (and how would you use it?!)
