pollen/cabin filter

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me where the pollen filter is located on my car - is it in the engine compartment or in the cabin? If in the cabin is it accessed from the passenger or driver side?! (I have a right-hand-drive model)
Thanks,
Tommy

The pollen filter is in the cabin. It is accessed through the right side, which is the driver's side in your case. All you have to to to get to it is remove the three screws under the steering wheel which hold the kick panel in.

Yes, but you didn't say anything about right-hand drive vehicles

thanks for the replies - I'll give it a shot after dinner
($125 for a dealership to replace it? - ouch!)
