POLLEN FIL­TER RE­NEWAL

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Diy Servicing 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1750t -

9 RE­MOVE TRIM PANEL

The pollen fil­ter is ac­cessed via the driver’s footwell and is quite tight for space on right-hand-drive mod­els due to the steer­ing col­umn be­ing nearby. From within the footwell, re­move the trim panel shown here, which is se­cured with a sin­gle trim plug and is clipped into po­si­tion.

10 UN­CLIP AC­CESS PANEL

A plas­tic rec­tan­gu­lar-shaped panel cov­ers the edge of the pollen fil­ter. Un­clip and re­move it to ex­pose the side of the old pollen fil­ter, then care­fully pull it out. Check the new pollen fil­ter is the same size and shape as the old one. Look for air­flow ar­rows on the edge of the new pollen fil­ter.

11 FIT NEW POLLEN FIL­TER

Po­si­tion your­self so that you can see into the driver’s footwell, then feed the new pollen fil­ter into po­si­tion, mak­ing sure the air­flow ar­rows are point­ing to­wards the heater. There’s lit­tle space to fit the fil­ter with­out bend­ing it a lit­tle. Re­mov­ing the footrest can help, but Turin have per­se­vered and found it can be done.
