Pollen Filter

Is the pollen filter worth the 42 bucks?

Has anyone here got one, do you think its worth it or not?

Yes its worth it, just fitted one and only took about 5min on a BA.
Helps in keeping all the dust out of the vents.

yes i bought the filter - too soon to tell if it was worth $30 ( shouldn't be $42 - check that out)

To fit it:

Open the glove box - push the plastic tab that stops it from dropping right open, so it will now drop lower.

Reach in behind the glove box and you will see a sliding door with a couple of holding tabs. Slide this to the left to open it. The standard thing is like a leave catcher, side this out totally.

The pollen filter looks alot like a normal air filter that is use in the air intake of the engine (only it is white). This unit slides in inplace of the removed item. (the pollen filter comes with a replacement door) Slide the new door ( to the right this time) in over the white filter and your done.

Takes about 10 minutes

I got one but I find I like to drive the ute with the windows open to hear more 'BOSS Sound FX' (TM) - hence the pollen filter is wasted isn't it?? It would therefore make more sense on a HAD vehicle.

Two photos on where to slide in the pollen filter on a BA.
The sliding catch with open and close on the front comes with the new filter.
