Hi all. Wondered if any one knows where the pollen filter is on a 04 206. Bought one to change it but have no clue as to where to find it.
This is my first too, so hope someone can help.

Hope this helps - found this advice somewhere (maybe old post on here!!!) and stored it away until our 206 needs one:

1. 206 has a small "gill vent" on the left hand side (looking from the fron of the car) on the bonnet. These draw air for the A/C and cabin space. Now open the bonnet. Under the bonnet, just under the "gills" is a space, separated from the rest of the engine space with a sort of a wall and a seal against a bonnet.

2. Put your hand in this hole, and there should be an empty space going from there right under the windscreen, towards the cabin. You should be able to feel the filter under your palm. That's the pollen filter.

3. You'll have to work on feel here. Find the edge of the filter, grab on it and pull it up. It's easier to take out the right side out first, than the left side. Take note how the filter was positioned inside its housing. The filter itself is irregularly-trapezoidal in shape, with a 90deg angle going to the left side in the filter housing, and the pointy side of the filter going to the right side of the housing.

4. Take the new filter, and put it back the way you pulled the old filter back. It's easier to put in the side with a 90deg angle in first - put it in and push the filter to the left, and then put in the pointy side of the new filter back in. Take care not to turn the filter upside down, just like with the airfilter, there is a ridge on the filter that should be seated onto the ridge in the filter housing. You'll still have to use the feel only, and maybe manouver a bit until you seat the filter properly. DON'T PANIC if you can't seat it properly the first time, it takes practice ;D but you'll manage eventually. When finished, push the filter gently into place and see if it moves. It's not tightly seated in there, it doesn't need to be, but it shouldn't play around all over the place. That's it.

Thanx for your reply 307 SW, it was perfect. Was starting to think I would never find the answer.
