    Pollen filter comes with instructions, pay attention to the direction of airflow markings!
    You will need a T25 torx bit and a 5.5mm socket
    A Denso pollen filter at Eurocarparts is under £8 normally but over £11 when they have a discount code in force (cheeky sods) aint that illegal?

    My left hand drive seems to need a little more dismantling involving 6 more T25 screws as the filter access cover is not fully accessible. I've not gone into detail here.
    The pictures are just to assist the official guide above.

    The cover is very tight so needs a good pull towards you and slightly downward (both tabs at once)

    Thank you John

    This is the step I do in addition on mine and it might possibly be easier on yours too?
    Remove the six additional T25's , top left removed and tool on bottom right shown

    The whole glovebox surround then hinges down

    At under £8 DIY I would change it every year at least or if doing high mileage in dusty conditions or lots of heavy traffic I would do it sooner.
    Dealer price is often near £40 plus labour :Doh:

    Changing it or not will not affect your engine, this is purely to filter the outside air coming in through the ventilation. It is of course of great benefit to your health.

    Andy I just told my mrs about your very helpful how to threads with photos. cheeky cow just asked if you could do a thread with photos about how to change the bog roll:Rofl1:

    thankyou for your efforts as always, because you make life easier for the mere mortals on here that wouldnt know and could all to easily be ripped off for what is a simple job. :thumb:

    I gather from that that you're guilty of using the last sheet and doing a runner :Rofl1:

    20160916_130938.jpg 20160916_125635.jpg Very helpful thread Andy - thank you. Just by way of an update, I bought a Crossland filter from Eurocarparts this week for £9.37 including delivery. The Euro 5 Ducato is slightly different so I have added some photos so anyone else doing this job for the first time with that engine will not be surprised. When the glovebox lid is dropped (as in your earlier photos) this is what is seen. A wall of plastic with no access to the filter ! There are 8 screws to remove (2 not immediately apparent at the top) and with a little careful prising at the top, the whole glovebox comes out to reveal the filter housing. After that, it's easy to undo the 2 x 5.5mm screws and slide the filter out. Mine was pretty black with dirt so was well worth doing. As Andy says, it's pretty straightforward and saves a wad of cash that the garage will charge - both in labour and inflated parts costs.

    If one is fitted it certainly isn't in the same place. Most likely under the bonnet passenger side below the windscreen

    Thanks Techno for all the guidance pictures, changed the filter this morning, took about 20 - 30 minutes, quite straightforward after following your instructions, thanks
