    Does anybody have info/procedure for changing the cabin/pollen filter on a 182? Is it a simple 5minute jobby or a bit tricky to get at?

    Its not to bad, its located under the slam panel on the drivers side. I think there is three clips to undo and then pull of the plastic panel, you should be able to see where it is once its off. Make sure you put the new one in the right way becasue its a bit of a pain to squeeze in.

    Relatively simple and more like 15 mins. The slam panel or scuttle panel is below the windscreen on the outside. Just open the bonnet, remove the panel and unbolt the filter housing. Pinch the filter on its sides to get it in and make sure you follow the airflow instructions. Easy.

    Hey guys just a quick question. I've just gone to change my cabin filter on my phase two 172, and it didn't have one fitted lol!? So my query is how does the filter sit? Does it just sit length ways over the inlet? Or pushed into the inlet? A Random question I know but because there wasn't an old one, I don't know how it sits!?

    Cheers Rob.

    It fits length ways . You have to sort of bend / squash it a little bit to get it in , then once it's in it bends back to it's normal shape . Make sure you get it the right way round too , there are arrows on it showing the direction of airflow .
