    Don't forget the Dettol spray in the air intake when you change it...

    Take the old filter out, turn the aircon on full whack and spray absolutely loads of some kind of antibacterial spray into the hole behind where the filter sits. Dettol do a nice pink grapefruit one at the moment

    Then once you've done that, stick it on recirculate and leave it for a few mins with all the doors and windows closed while you put the pollen filter back in and close the bonnet etc. This will get the dettol right around the system.
