Renault Espace 3 - How To Replace Pollen Filters

Hi All,

After replacing both my pollen filters on my Espace today i thought i would do a guide to help others,

On the Espace Mk III there are 2 pollen filters located under the bonnet of the car behind 2 black steel covers found on the bulk head in each corner just below the dash speakers on the dash,

Drivers Side Filter Location

Passenger Side Filter Location

To remove these steel plates you will need to use these below to remove the 4 torque style screw holding them in place and the size you need is T27,

Once you have the 4 screw removed from each plate you just need to pull the plates and the rubber seals away to reveal the filter location,

Plate and seal Removed

Drivers Side

Passenger Side

Once you have this done its just a case of pulling the old filters out,

New & Old filter after onlt one year....Yuk!

Once you have the old filter pulled out its time to push the new ones in making sure the vertical lines of the filter are running from front to rear and the filter is placed up in pointing in the right direction of air flow which is indicated on the side of the filter,

Air Flow Indicator

Passenger side

Once you have this done on both sides its time to replace the seal and the plates back on and tighten them up,

Job Done!

Hope this helps Donald
