It's accessible by removing the glovebox

Remove the aluminium trim, under there are the screws to remove the glovebox.

And yes you have to remove the complete glovebox!

Our steering wheels are on the correct side though so perhaps that's why they differ



It's a 5 minute job max

Yep, you need to remove the glovebox. Doing this job myself soon as its getting a bit stuffy. New filter and some Forte aircon treatment should sort things out.

Thanks, I checked my RHD Brera Pollen Filter too. I just needed to remove the small panel inside the glovebox (Its the one with the USB Socket- just one screw) Then remove the Small Hex headed screw to remove the filter Its a bit of a tight squeeze as there's not enough room for both hands and the filter plus USB and glovebox switch cables get in the way a bit. But its done now.
But You don't need to take the entire Glovebox out.

I did my pollen filter without removing the glovebox. 1 screw removed the panel where the B&M connections are, then you can just reach inside and take out the old filter. Be careful there are two different types of filter listed in the parts catalogue. Mine had the wrong type in but was a fluke i bought the right type!

Did mine the same - no need to take out the glove box but prepare for scratched hands!

Thumbs Up Alfa Romeo 159 cabin air filter location

If you want to change alone the cabin air filter you need to follow some steps.
Open the glove box, remove some screw and panel...
I find on this blog all the work procedure with pictures.

Was just about to try this, got the blue and me out of the way and found a self taping screw holding the filter in. What tool am meant to use to get it out?

its a weird size nut on the end. I found an imperial set of sockets did it in the end but can't remember which one. Its around 6mm in metric. (5 too small, 6 too big).

What do we reckon, something like this would have the right piece?

I've got a lovely socket set in my tool kit, bit the smallest it does 10mm

Pop down to your local halfrauds. they will have a set of 1/4" sockets on a bar you can just buy and use today. that set looked fine though.

I seriously recommend one of those Halfords | Halfords Advanced Professional 170 Piece Socket & Ratchet Spanner Set - just wait until they do 50% off deal on it.
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.
