    I'll post some pics at lunch.. (mines a pre facelift by the way, i believe it's different on a facelift??)

    1. Open the bonnet and look at the passenger side next to the windscreen. Where the washer jet is, there should be a kinda flap, there a are two slits.
    2. Pull back the seal and lift the flap (pulling the seal off makes it a little easier to lift the flap)
    3. Locate the two white clips at the top and get your finger underneath it and pull outwards, these break very easily, i've snapped one of them off!
    4. pull the top of the filter towards you then lift it out.
    5.Job done.. reverse the process to put your new one back in.

    No problem.. I've had the car 10 months and never even thought about changing it.. god knows when it was last changed.. if ever! I had the air con re-gassed and it smelt awful, read somewhere about spraying dettol in the hole behind the pollen filter and it's when i took it out, i saw it and thought "Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww".. as a clean freak.. it was a bit of a shock.
