Breath of fresh & hot air

Changed the pollen filter on my 2000 Scenic 1.6 last week.

The best price I could find was 13.81 inc VAT from my local GSF branch (German, Swedish, French spares).

Unless my Renault dealer changed it at 18.000 miles, I'm ashamed to say it's the first time the filter has been changed since new. No wonder my heater performance had deteriorated. It's now like new again.

Got one from a dealer recently. Was only a few quid more, so I was happy to buy it (no delivery charge).

Here's a question for you....

I had a look a few months ago, and went to remove the pollen filter, see if it needed changing.

The plastic strip that it attaches to, came out (after much cajoling)...and guess pollen filter attached.

Neither was my mates. Is this normal? I've had the car for 2 years now, and Im not dead
Do they make much of a difference?

Apart from filtering out the fine dust and pollen - the pollen filter actually traps a lot of the soot kicked out by diesels - although primarliy not designed to do so you would be surprised how black they become. Also prevents dirt build up in the system and if dirt gathers on the air-con evaporator it will work less efficiently and also start to pong big time if the pollen and fungal spores start to germinate. Fungus just loves dark warm, moist dark speaces to grow. If you were a mushroom you'd love it in there

For the sake of a tenner or so its hardly worth doing without it
