    Default Can Someone Do me a favour

    Check the pollen filter and see if it's black both sides, preferably someone whose had a service in the last 2k thx

    I'm suspecting mines been turned around, for 2k's worth of mileage it sure looks like the one I put in 12k ago.

    And I am gonna name and shame this time, I've had it up to here with a certain Vx dealer in HILSEA PORTSMOUTH, both on service and sales.

    nope, the pollen filter should be clean and white if it's the paper one, or a very light grey on one side only if it's the charcoal filter..the other side is still white..

    sounds like you've been done VV..

    If it's the same mechanic I think it is, I grew up with him and he rip'd my mum off some yrs ago, she had this thing about helping ppl she knew out to get started, he was supposed to put a clutch in for her, and 8k later it was slipping again, just a friction plate you you madam,but I'll charge you for all 3 pieces and tell you tough luck I've folded up now.

    I don't know why I didn't go round and hang him off a balcony at the time tbh, maybe it was that I knew him, maybe that I didn't know where to find him, but that's two things now, pollen filter not replaced for £180 and finished off the engine shield, again with a billy answer when I reported it, if it was broke when he found it why didn't he make a note of it, he was able to write 3mm on the tyre report, so if he had nothing to hide why not list this, beginning to wonder if I got an oil and derv filter fitter or not now, probably a drain and drain service, anyway, last time, you've just 5h1t it Evans Awfull, I'm off to Fareham from now on other than self fit parts *the one dept that does at least function*, and I shudder to think what the poor receptionist and service counter staff have to endure every day, at least Inscape do do what they say, and when they say, mind you half of Evans' old staff work there, wonder why they left?

    Cos they shaft the staff as they do the customer

    If it's an OE Vx filter, I'm sure you'll find they have the air flow direction marked on the side of them (not all the after market ones do) so should be easy enough to tell if it has been turned around.

    ditto, mine was black on both sides and had all sorts of feathers and leaves and general junk pushed up against it.
    Also to confirm, there are directional arrows on the sides.
