My pollen filter was replaced yesterday.
The car was 11.5 month sold and 15,000 km and the dealer insisted it was in need of replacement.
He replaced 2 pollen filters at a cost of 2,800 Thai Baht (about 44 GBP) including fitting of 160 THB (about 2.50 GBP) eek!
This involved removing the glovebox, (maybe this is easier on the later model) and was finished whilst I waited. It must have taken about an hour as I finished a frame of snooker in his comfortable lounge.
I was a bit miffed as I thought he was replacing the broken glovebox stays (Wife put heavy service books on the glovebox lid and they broke or so she claims)
. This was why we took it in but alas another visit needed.
I thought I was being stitched up but there was a fair amount of dried vegetable matter in the filter (could have been blown out but Bangkok air is almost palpable).
The other reason I took it in was for a service as the computer was showing it was well past service time. It turned out it was serviced at 9,000km and the "expert mechanic" had not reset the computer rant .
The only other fault is a sticking door release button on the driver's door. It goes in but it ain't coming out. As the door then does not latch it leaves only one hand for steering
. Bit of oil and they claim it is fixed. As only 2 weeks left on warranty I will confirm this in writing.
