    Default Pollen filter swap / Scuttle tray cleaned

    I have the day off today so I thought I would change the pollen filter.

    It had a service from VX 5 months ago and it should have been changed then. I changed the pollen filter as I recently took a look at the Air Filter which should have been changed on the service and it was pretty mank.

    I'm not a very trusting sort of person when it comes to the stealers






    Also cleaned out the scuttle tray as I have not done this before. It needed it.

    Thanks Rob. I will be cleaning this now once a month now. I will not be having another service now with the stealers. I plan on driving the car into the ground anyhow so the history is not so important to me.

    Had 2 flooded passenger side footwells, so decided to search this superb forum. Found my drain blocked and it's just been to the stealers for a major service last month. Can't believe they don't clear this drain hole.

    Airbag light is on now, so don't know if some of the electronics got wet under the passenger seat?

    The water comes in through the heater matrix and can cause costly problems. Best to keep a regular eye on it
