Changing Laguna 1 pollen filter

Heres a 'how to' on changing the pollen filter on the Laguna 1.Although this was done on a Lag 1 Phase 2 model,I'm sure it's the same procedure for a Phase 1....

Firstly,make sure the ignition is off,and open the bonnet.Pull the rubber seal(A) away from the metal edge(B).

Locate the 2 screws in the plastic scuttle panel cover to the nearside rear of the engine bay.Screw 1 is a plastic T30 torx,screw 2 is a metal T20 torx.The plastic one screws out a little way,and then can be pulled out.

Next,remove the plastic grille,and this will expose the lower cover......

The lower cover unclips and comes out,and you should then be able to see the filter(yellow shaded area,as I'd already taken mine out..).The filter just pulls out.BE CAREFUL not to drop anything down the exposed hole,as it could get stuck in the heater blower fan and burn it out when you go to use it!

Spot the difference!.I think it's obvious which ones the new filter,and which one is the old one.....(Motaquip part number VCF110)

The filter is a bit of a fiddle to get back in,and you must be careful not to crush or damage it.The 'cut off corner' of the filter goes to the top left as you look at it from the front.When it's in,it should look like this.....

And in the best Haynes Manual fashion,re-fitting is the reversal of removal!.The T30 plastic screw just pushes back in,and doesn't need screwing back in.It just acts as a clip....

I hope someone finds this usefull in the future.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
