Peugeot 206 – Changing the pollen filter (aka cabin filter)
Having changed my pollen filter again, it reminds me how hard it seemed to be to find a guide for doing this, so I’ve disappeared out in the rain to take some photos to create a quick guide to replacing the cabin pollen filter on a Peugeot 206.
Be aware: The cabin pollen filter is in a tight space, so don’t be surprised if you get your hands on it, but seem to be struggling to work out how to get it out! It is literally sitting in the top of a metal duct, so you “just” need to lift it up and out. I find I have to loosen the edges, and then lift the front, and pull the right hand side out first (basically lift and pull the pointed right end side out). Hopefully the photos below will help. It’s well worth doing yourself rather than paying an expensive garage fee.
Pricing for pollen filters
I’ve bought mine from GSF and EuroCarParts in the past, but actually Amazon now looks to have the best price, at about £2 less than EuroCarParts and GSF at the time of writing (EuroCarParts: £7.29 versus Amazon: £5.42 with free delivery).
