Guys heres a guide for the pollen filter its for the one thats under the passenger side.

First make sure ur wipers are facing up the way as it will make it easier to get the panel of when it comes to pulling it.

First open the bonnet and remove the screw at the side of the passenger window the screw will be under a cover on the outside.

Next remove the foam block at the side of the engine,it should be just beside ur bonnet strut.

Remove the foam strip at the top of the engine bay.

next remove the 2 screws using a small screwdriver or a hex alankey

Remove the cover by pulling upwards towards being carful not to pull to hard as ur window washer is connected to it.

Remove the rubber that holds the filter in place

Remove the filter.

Put in the new filter and make sure the arrows that are on the side of the pollen fiter face down the way. towards the ground.

now do everything in reverse and thats ur pollen filter replaced,just make sure that u put in the foam block at the side of the bonnet strut.

Once all that is done then do what jeff does and get an ice cold pint and relax to a job well done.

From 2002 facelift the 156 used the same filters (two of them) as the 147 which fit under the dash in the same place as a 147.

Pre 2002 all 156 were the same (always on the passenger side). LHD & RHD filters are different size too.

Many thanks for your help, which I may add was much appreciated. The photographic step by step guide was brilliant.

Excellent post Miximup! Nice to see people have the time to take pics.

What a pain in the ass it is to change that filter! I bet some of the garages are lazy and don't do it on a service! Anyway, I know where to check mine now.

Cheers........
