    pollen filter change

    have been searching through the how-tos and mk5 section on how to remove and replace the pollen filter. i think i am more than capable to remove the old one and install a new one. however, question time:

    where do i get the new one from?
    what is the part number for it?
    how much is it likely to cost?

    there is a horrible musky smell when the air-recirculation is on, and the front windscreen is misting very easily. i am sure i can cope with removing the 4 torx head screws and a couple of bolts.

    help much appreciated!

    Mate, I had the same smell. I got a Pollen filter from local motor factors for £9.50. Removed the glove box and you can then see the slot where it goes. The smell did not go away, the root cause of this is still work in progress though..
