Title: Pollen filter replacment
Post by: kiarasue on August 28, 2005, 07:01:28 PM
Can anybody tell me how to change the pollen filter in my 2000 glx v6? I hate going to the dealer if I can help it.

I don't know, but have you consulted your owner's manual?

That's where my pollen filter is. I imagine it's the same on a V6. Those pics are from a 1.8T. Literally a matter of seconds to gain access to it.

the part numbers are different for the V6 and 1.8T, and also the B5 and B5.5.  I believe the difference between the filters is it's thicknesses.

p/n for your car is 8A0 819 439A

Dealer List is probably about $30.00 +/-

There is a write up here by Alan (AOWHAUS) on using a furnace filter from Home Depot:
