If its the same as my 1.5dci 86bhp then its not to bad, just be weary of the turbo solenoid, its slightly obstructing the screw you need to undo, the other screw is easy to remove and lift the top off and remove the old filter, when i change mine, i stick the hoover in there to suck the left over flies from the bottom :d hope this helps :cool:

Hey it is really simple to change! My screw was actually obstructed a bit by the battery but with a wee bit of patience it was easy enough to take out! :d I also stuck a hoover in to remove the leaves and in my case a bee out of the filter housing! lol :d and the filter just lifts out and the new one sits in nicely! I did my cabin filter at the same time and it was disgusting and the amount of leave in there was :eek::eek:!! ha ha :d maybe best to do that one too!

Having been invoved in the motor trade for around 40 years I have found many so-called servicing by dealers fail to change the fcabin filters. It not just Renault who fail to do so.

My neighbour has an 9 year old Ford with a full Ford service history and the pollen filter has never been changed until a few weeks ago by the owner himself.

What many garages fail to recognise is that the incoming air helps cool the heater motor and a blocked filter will shorten its life-span.

I would recommend it be changed at least once a year and inspected during the Autumn especially after leaf-fall.:)

You can't always judge by the colour as some types are availble with activated carbon content to neutralise odours, etc.. - hence ethey can be either black or grey in appearance even when new.

The activated carbon filters are the most effective but have a shorter working life and are obviously more expensive. But for people with respiratory problems they can be a godsend.

I have to admit to change the pollen filter on my Honda is the simplest I have ever came across. No tools are required and the dirvers handbook even explains how to do the job. Open the glove box - undo two swivel catches - slide out the old filter and then reverse the procedure. Why can't all manufactirers do the same eh!!:)

Mine was supposed to be white. There was a few patches of the original colour here and there!! The megane's cabin filter was the easiest thing to change! Take the cover off ,take the old filter out, vacuum out the housing put the new one in. All that is required is a little bit of wiggling to get it back in! :d
