    Question Replacing cabin (interior) pollen filter

    Hello
    have been searching thru the threads and the "How To guides" but cannot find the thread on replacing the cabin pollen filter in the Astra.
    Ours is a 5-Dr Astra Estate (Caravan) with a Z18XE engine.
    Any suggestions or if you could provide a link to this guide would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to remove the glovebox.

    Once its out look in the hole to the right where the heater bit is and you will see a long cover about 2" wide and about 12" long. Its behind that flap.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    The flap is held on by 2 very small bolts, one at each end, when they are removed you may still struggle to remove the flap as it is latched and they need pressing to get them to pop out.

    Question

    Thanks for the fast replies.
    Would you know if the bolts need special tools to remove? unscrew?
    e.g. torx wrench or 6-head bolt? or are they simple philips 10 screws?
    Can installation of the new filter be incorrectly placed?
    e.g. is there a specific orientation to the placement of the filter?
    Thanks again.

    there just a normal socket cant remember what size, and yes you can put it in the wrong way, check with the old one as you take it out there should be arrows on the top pointing the correct way, think the arrows should be pointing into the cabin.

    Bolts are quite small, either 5 or 6mm IIRC maybe even 5.5. I used a very small torx socket on it as I couldn't find the correct one, it was almost a perfect fit.
