hi mine was under the scuttle panel passenger side if thats eny help
how do i get it out
under the passenger side wiper there is a panel held in by 2 or 3 screws (i cant remember exactly) you remove these then pull the panel off and you can see the pollen filter. this is held in by a bit of elastic simply unhook it and pull the filter out Thanks Ryan
Here is a nice explanation with pictures posted by hellcat. httpwww.fiatforum.commarea-techn...demisters.html
The pollen filter is under a long panel in the bonnet drip channel passenger side. It just clips in. Not sure about air con.

Is this the correct pollen filter httpeper.fiatforum.comnaviDRW_N...D1&GUI_LANG3 46442422 - AIR CLEANER EDIT That number is for the left hand vehicle.
my car hasnt got ac therefore i had no pollen filter which is why my air vents are full of leaves. to solve this i used a pair of old tights to cover the air intake hole with wire wrapped round to secure it. it filters the air nicely costs nowt and dries quickly to avoid the gusset odour.
Ts86net the pollen filter will not stop the smell of exhaust fumes you will need a carbon activated filter for that. The clips I think you are refering to to hold the filter in do not exist it is basically a rubber band that clips over the top and bottom of the mounting and yes pollen filters were only fitted to ac equipped cars if I remember correctly.
just found this thread since i was also having trouble fitting a cabin pollen filter to a non- ac marea 2.0 Basically there is nowhere to mount the filter just a hole that leads to the fan thats even smaller than the filter itself. Were obiously not in the generation of cars that were fitted with pollen filters as standard here. Maybe the air is fresher in Italy eh One option is to gaffer tape the

Hi rigby You only get it from factory if you have air-con fitted. I got one from a scrap marea to prevent leaves and crud getting into the fancabin. This is the filter housing
Any Bravo Brava and marea with air-conditioning will have that part from the factory. kanti83 liked this post
Condensation eh Is it an air-con model If so.. its higly likely the pollen filter requires replacing. As for the model Is this like a marea Weekend van

Id second what fbarcode said. My marea wouldnt demist when I got it - took the pollen filter out looked like it had never been changed (90000 miles) the amount of crap that was in it. Just chuck it away till you can get a replacement its not critical.
Open bonnet. Locate pollen filter cover. Use screwdriver (philips 2) to remove the highlighted screws. Locate pollen filter securing band (highlighted green). Unclip from front of pollen filter holder. Remove pollen filter. Replacing is reverse of removal. Make sure rain protection is put over the top of the pollen filter cover (use a screwdriver or finger to tease the strip over the top of the cover.
I wacked some of that cat clean stuff in with the fuel and gave it 50 miles of welly and it fixed itself Thanks for the reply anyway. marea is now up for sale. marea HLX 2.0 20V It has been fully serviced (Plugs air filter oil oil filter pollen filter timing belt idler and fuel filter). Topped up with anti-freeze windscreen wash and it like a rocket. 79K on the clock with some service history and I think there are previous MOTs also. What kind of price should I put it up for Thanks Dan
Sounds like its coming in through the pollen filter. There should be a soft rubber seal across the top of the pollen filter panel that seals against the bonnet. Check around that area. Take the pollen filter panel off and check for signs of water. Other options would be sun roof drains blocked and ariel connector. EDIT Oh and welcome to our forum Hope you enjoy it.
Thought Id ressuscitate this as same problem. Passenger foot well full of water after heavy rain. The heater blower sits just above so felt around this and appeared damp. The pollen filter sits above this so took cover off and pollen filter damp. Put hand down to drivers side of pollen filter housing - up to my elbow in water. There is a large drainage tube just here that was blocked with leaves etc.
when was the last time your pollen filter was changed
that panel at all. I think the problem is that the air just cant get OUT of my car its just pressurised. Even the incoming ventilation is restricted - if I crack open a window or the sunroof the flow increases dramatically and I even get a big side draught through a ripped seal on the drivers door. Maybe a design fault on this particular body style I think youl find the Brava is the same as the marea
sorry fofrgot that part the car is a marea weekend 1.6 16valve 2000 on a w plate also the pollencabin filter is the wrong part number once i get the oil and fuel filter fitted i will uodate this post further

like i said its your pollen filter ..

1.6 is 16v Fully electronic ignition 3.8l of selenia 20k or any good semi or fully synthetic oil. NGK BKR5EZ Champion RC10YCC 0.8mm gap pollen filter on ac models only fuel filter is behind a panel in the wheel arch near the fuel filler. Tyres 2.1f2.3r normal 2.2f2.5r fully laden cold add 0.3 for hot. What service is it
Check the front floormats - if you find liquid there it can be a heater matrix leaking. Also - can be a clogged pollen filter or a broken flap under it. Check the above and based on results search this forum and the BravoBrava forum for answers.
Got airconditioning Might be worth checking your pollen filter isnt full of nasty stuff.
Thanks for the replies. Will have a look at the pollen filter and mixer flap if i can figure out how to get at them Carpets are dry so no problem there. Cheers all D
Make sure no leaves are blocking up the air intake for the heater matrix if there is a pollen filter ensure it is clean. Sometimes a good flush & re-fill system bleed is needed (but make sure you refill 5050 coolant (anti-freeze) & water) If there is still a problem after that it may be a partially furred up heater matrix... or even a heat control knob that isnt fully operational
Also if you look under the other side of the plastic panel there is a large rubber bung that enters the cabin above the glove box. Its near the pollen filter beside where the big wiring loom goes into the car. Well my ELX has this anyway Im sure someone has already posted a thread about this access point.
