How To - Change A Pollen Filter

I know most people here probably know how to change a pollen filter, but for the select few who don't, I whipped together a quick walkthrough.

As far as I know this applies to all Rover 25/45 models + MG variants

You will need:

x1 Pollen filter

x1 Socket wrench/screwdriver

x1 8mm socket

x1 7mm socket

x20 minutes (roughly)

1. Put the radio on.

THIS IS IMPORTANT, as it will relive stress and prevent you from wanting to murder small insects.

2. Now that you have some ambient background noise to make you feel relaxed, take an 8mm socket and remove the 2 bolts that hold the glovebox in place

3. Now, remove the glovebox by opening it (It should drop straight down.)

You should end up with something like this.

The pollen filter housing is the massive gap on the right (Previous owner decided to remove the filter + cover and not replace them)

4. Switch to a 7mm socket and remove the 2 bolts that hold the glovebox support bar in place.

4. Now, take your filter:

And insert it carefully into the housing, making sure it is the right way round.

5. Admire your work:

Before bolting everything back (refitting is simply a reversal of removing.

6. Have a cup of tea.

for a personal touch, I like to soak the new pollen filter in some nice smelling stuff before fitting.

last time it was F-JAS bubblegum fragrance oil, although I have also used various flavours of Hugo Boss and Paco Rabanne.

All the time the air is flowing, the car smells awesome!

Hi! I recently put in a pollen filter in my 216 Cabrio because I noticed there wasn't any already installed. My question now is which way the air is flowing so that I can be sure I put in in correctly. I have a left-side steering wheel so the access to the filter is on the pasenger side. Is the airflow from left to right or otherwise? Many thanks!
