    Pollen filter is on the right hand side (as you look into the engine bay) under the scuttle panel. Pull the bonnet seal from the rear of the engine bay, and there is a panel that lifts up. The pollen filter is under that, retained by a couple of clips.

    To reset the light, have you tried pressing the brake pedal and leaving the drivers door open whilst you press and hold the trip switch, and then turn on the ignition to position II (ie dash lights on). You have to hold the button for approx 20 seconds.

    If you change the fuel filter, top the new one up with derv before you close it up and start the car, helps keep the air out.

    Derv is just another name for diesel....system is self bleed but it will normally take a few seconds on the starter to get the air out and the engine running smoothly ...as VV says it is good practice to fill the filter housing with fresh fuel to help the process
