Has pretty much everything you need in it, and has lifetime warranty - when i've snapped a breaker bar in half by jumping on it trying to undo a bolt they've replaced it with no questions asked.
Awesome cheers guys, can finally get this done , been on my to-do list for ages.

That would explain it..... I don't have any half mm increments. The imperial ones fitted perfect.

Just changed the pollen filter on the car this afternoon, didn't need to remove anything other than the cover inside the glove compartment and the single screw for accessing the pollen filter housing. Which promptly fell down behind the carpeting. I'll retrieve that someday and have used a spare one for the time being. Note - use a magnetic driver when removing this one.

The filter that came out was clogged and disgusting. Probably never been changed!

Thanks for the tips/guidance!

Not sure if this will be of any use to anyone. The pollen filter is towards the end.


I bought the car recently. The garage were supposed to do a full service before delivery including air and cabin/pollen filter. I think they forgot :-)

Sent a cheque to keep me happy when they saw the YouTube video
