Most akward part of the job is refitting the new filter. Do yourself a favour get a piece of timber cut to length to keep the clutch pedal fully pressed & out of the way, I propped it against the seat base rail.

i can see why cruachan says the 159 is easier, it is!
got the panel off, was trying to do it with the foot rest in situ but i don't think i'll get the panel back on.
any idea how the foot rest is secured?

No more difficult than a Grande Punto and that comes out from passenger side. Takes 10 minutes tops including hoovering up all the crap that falls out when removing the old one.

well that was a bloody job. i've not got a clutch pedal so it must be even harder for those that have.
had to squeeze the filter together and wiggle it into the housing, wont be doing that again in a hurry. it wouldn't be so bad if the steering column wasn't right in the way, stopping the filter going in straight.
cheers for the help.

Pretty straight forward job to change it
Extremely cheap part and I change it at least once a year and sometime more often especially if eurocarparts run a good discount and you can buy it for peanuts

Hmmm, might just be my experience but when I was doing the rear brakes on my G (discs and pads) eurocarparts were offering 50% off for new customers, and even with that were still more expensive than shop4parts without the 10% forum discount. I got the pollen filter from eBay.

Euro car parts are a bit of a Joke. The prices go up and down depending on which discount they have running so that the overall price is always pretty much the same.

I have often found the same cheaper elsewhere as well. Ebay is good for branded stuff (All car Parts, Mr Auto etc), and another shout here for shop4parts. When I recently bought a clutch and flywheel for the Giulietta they were by the far the cheapest I could find.
