Aygo Pollen Filter Change.

Recommended Posts

The pollen filter on the AYGO is an easy job to do and requires no tools, up under the dash on the passenger side is a white plastic panel, this is the end of the pollen filter, squeeze the ears on the white housing and pull out..

The pollen filter is a flexible housing and will bend as you pull it out, this was what i found, one very dirty filter ( on the left )...

Filter cost is around £10, i bought mine as part of a service kit from Parts-King.

A clean pollen filter should help the heater fan from working overtime to get air into the car, so £10.00 well spent :thumbsup:

Thanks a lot for this. My Aygo with air con is having its 5th service shortly and this doesn't include the pollen filter so I was going to do it myself.

Does anyone know what the official Toyota UK price is for an Aygo pollen filter? Based on my previous experience, parts from Citroen and Peugeot are cheaper. The pollen filter from Citroen is £19.29.

The one you've mentioned was £10 - how would I order from Parts-King?

Also where would I be best to get hold of the Comma air con sanitiser spray from?

Thanks and sorry for all the questions!

Parts-King is the clubs superstar for genuine parts.....

The filter was £10.34 +vat but i also bought a full service kit so the postage cost will differ.

Halford sell the comma air/con cleaner for £11.73, you may find it on Ebay but it will be plus postage.

I normally get anything from ebay but

coming home from buying my filter, I passed

Halfords and bought the sanitizer there.

After changing the filter, ......

It has instructions but what you do is......

Air-con on, fan on full, recirc. on.

get ready......big breath, hold breath....set off the can and

place in left footwell with nozzle pointing towards where your right

foot is normally placed.

Leave car, close door, start breathing again.

Give it 5 minutes, occasionally holding breath, giving can a shake

and putting it back.

When it's empty, job done. leave car to settle for a bit then

drive with windows down for a couple of miles.

Did mine about 5 weeks ago.

Still not smelling stale.

Ian.

Thanks again - the guide made fitting so simple!

Bought an official Toyota pollen filter for £11.99 (from Ebay) delivered and fitted it in 2 minutes! The old one was awful, full of small leaves, other debris and really black.

This process really ought to be summarised in the Aygo user handbook as its even easier than fitting new Wiper Blades.

It would be extremely interesting to know how much Mr T would charge to fit a new pollen filter given how quickly it can be done?

Regards

I was told that you'd need to blow in the sanitizer trough the opening where the filter normally sits.

So the stuff actually gets into the evaporator end doesn't get caught by the filter...

Or maybe I've gotten another kind of can...

Hi, I have recieved a letter from toyota about their air conditioning service which will cost me £49.95. It states for that price the service involves a refrigeration gas top up, an anti-bacterial check, a full leak and system check, the pollen filter cleaned and the system treated with a dual action cleaning and sanitising agent

So when I phoned them up to arrange a time for it to be done, I asked if it will only be £49.95 that I pay. However they said, "well when we check the pollen filter and think it needs changing it will cost you a further £30". But I will be asked first before they carried it out, whether I want it doing or not!

They are obviously taking the pee with charging £30 for changing the pollen filter. But it confuses me with what they state is included in the service. Anyway I am going to take this letter with me on the day its being serviced and see what they say.

Hi, Noticed the post about pollen filter, is it only on Aygo with Air conditioning, I've had a look at mine and cant for the life of me see it,I've checked and where the above white area is mine is all black and appears to be held in with small screws.

I don't have air conditioning apart from opening the window that is.

Alternatively these filters can be washed providing they are intact.

Mine was pretty well block after 35k but now after washing I have full air flow again.

There are two types of sanitizer, one that you let off as a 'bomb' in the car and the other that you spray in

Normfest Viro do a spray and 'one shot' the latter is the bomb, I ordered 3 of each from ECP a few years back and they sent me 6 of one type, I then contacted them and they sent me 6 of the other type...and didn't want the original 6 back.

Best is they were on special and I only paid £1.50 for 6 of them! :clap:

As a tip when you take the old filter out is to get a plastic spatula and wrap a zoflora dampened microfiber cloth around it and clean the inside of where the filter slots in...all kinds of gunk will come out on the cloth.
