Okay this is something I've been meaning to check for a while.

A leaf blew into the cockpit yesterday through the internal vents so obviously no pollen filter fitted in my Duster.

Usually this is fitted in the passenger side but I checked today and it is not. Probably a cost cutting exercise in not bothering doing the swap.

Anyway I located it and have a couple pics to explain. These are very easy to change just it is a bit awkward to get in there.

There are 3 screws that hold in the Pollen Filter cover are Hex T20 in size.

First Screw is easy to get at the Second one is quitefiddly as you have to depress the clutch to get at it. And the third which is higher up into the foot-well is not too bad but hard to see. Literal need to have your head in there while on your back.

The pictures will hopefully explain it better.

I've tried to label this picture as best as I can.

A pic of the actual cover just to let ye know what ye are looking for.

Not sure of availability but these are ones I found on Ebay. Looks like different filters numbers for both Petrol and Diesel but I'm not 100% if they actually are different as I would have thought they would be the same.

1.5 DCi Diesel

Mine was empty, I bought the most basic model available here in Ireland which is probably the same or very close to the Ambient standard in the UK. We do not have the choice of the Access (Petrol) model over here.

Has anyone actually managed to fit a pollen filter in their RHD Duster? I got the cover off after undoing the 3 awkwardly-located screws, but then could not get the filter in as the pedals and steering column are in the way. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated - I suffer from hay fever so the pollen filter would be very useful.

I suspect it's only on the models with air con. You may have to break the filter to get it in.

The BMW e36 is like that. The only pollen filter they ever have that is not broken is the 1 it came with from the factory. All the others have a weak point in the frame which you crack and then you can get the filter in the holder. Looks similar location to the Duster but a lot more crap has to come off to get to it.

I'm hoping my left hand drive Duster will have the pollen filter on the same side as the UK ones i.e. where there are no pedals in the way :)

I didn't get round to it in the end and now I'm back in the UK.

Back to Corfu at the end of August and I'll take a look then.

The two parts you have links to on ebay are the same number, both CF 0100 if you look to the left of the section that says actual image of the filter.

Good spot might see if I can squeeze one of these in mine, had a feather blow out the vent the other day.

Mahle number is L A 230

Fram number is CF 9691

If you want to source one locally from a motor factors near you (would add though a fiver off ebay is a cracking price)

Do these restrict airflow though?

Does it work for fresh air / recirc air or both?

I quite like the fact the air blower can double as a hairdryer

No and yes, when fresh and clean a pollen filter will make no noticeable difference to the air flow, once clogged with all manner of muck then yes of course air flow will be restricted.

I believe that the air flow always travels though the pollen filter when fitted.

I recommend drying your hair before driving, unless you have air-con fitted which has a built in dehumidifier :D

Yes parked under trees at work - loads of crap blowing through - is the pollen filter in same place on a Stepway?

In fact loads getting through the bonnet - seal quality is questionable......

1. I don't think there is a seal on the bonnet as there is another thread somewhere on the forums that I saw demonstrating how to fit a seal the guy had bought cheap for anoher model. He was concerned that his battery was getting sprayed with road water from vehicles in front.

2. If leaves blow through ( and I have had a few now) why won't snowflakes or water find their way into the system? :unsure:

Hopefully it is designed in such a way they won't. I recall having a Ford Escort in the late 70s that sprayed dried leaves out all over the place at times. Don't recall getting water in it though.

I was checking my invoice for my 4th service, and saw the pollen filter. Since its an Access and should not have one I thought I'd check, and thanks to the original thread poster I located the flap (only 2 screws, top one missing) and looked behind, yes a clean filter - heaven knows how they get them in and out.
