Some colts have a cabin filter, I dont have air con but do have a cabin filter(this filters air coming into the car), some do some dont dont know why, if you want to change the filter heres how.

First you need 2 tools a philips screwdriver and socket set.

Open the glove box, at the sides of the glove box pull inwards the two wedges holding it, it will then fall down, infront of you should be the cabin filter but there is a bar in the way(I have a pre facelift so maybe different to yours).

First unscrew the whole glove box off with two screws it will make it easier.

Then undo the cross head screw and bolt on the right hand side:

Then pull the bar down hard just enough so you can pull out the filter.

Then pull the little bit of plastic up holding in the filter here.

Image

You then should be able to pull out the filter, mine was black and full of leaves.

Cheapest ive seen on ebay is £14 all way upto 20 something mate, tbh I just cleaned mine for now in hot water/soap but defo need a new one, the air flow is a lot better once it's cleaned I also sprinkled some ambi pur airfreshner fragrance onto it to make it smell better.

So it's definately worth doing it then seeing as it increases the power of the blowers. Good idea :) Thanks for doing the 'how to', it will make it alot easier/quicker for me when I do it :thumbu

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any photos of this "how to"? I really need to do mine soon - so need a visual guide.

Any help appreciated - cheers!
