i want to change mine also, do I have to take the window wipers off to remove the panel or can I get to the filter by just lifting it up.

i poped mine off...ahem...

and had a wee look at it...renault wanted 40 odd quid to fit etc in my service...i told them to die (in so many words)

in the end the smell got worse and i had to had to have a wee look at it...

just hoover it a wee bit..wee bit of perfume and your car will be smelling like a brothel again..
