Alfa 147 - pollen filter location

Can someone help me? i am trying to find the pollen filter on a 2001 147 (Lusso with dual zone climate control).

I have removed the carpet panel under the passenger side expecting to find it under there (that is what i thought i read) and found the bottom of the heater fan, but i am lost from there.

Cheers.

Re: Alfa 147 - pollen filter location

The left hand side L section, basically the side of the heater box is removed via 5 no. 5.5mm hex headed self tappers and the section hinges then pulls out. The filters pull out from right to left.

If its never been changed there will be one big filter in there, service replacement is 2 small filters (as a big one wont go back in!)

Best of luck! - Maybe someone will post a phot as its really not obvious.

You will need a 5.5mm socket and a short extension.

Somebody found some pictures here, albeit the instructions are in Japanese, but if you just use a 5.5mm socket to remove the L shaped section, youre in.

Madness Pollen Filter location shown on inside of box

I've just changed the two pollen filters on my Alfa 147. The clues given in these forums were very helpful thanks.

BUT. I've just broken-up the box that the new pollen filter (Mahle part no LAK141) came in, and noticed that on the inside of the box is a diagram that shows the location of the pollen filter.

If only I'd looked at that first...!

You need a 5.5mm socket to undo the botls holding the filter in. The ones either side are either too small or too big. I didn't have one but a 7/32" was perfect.
