    What a coincidence. I have just now finished my pollen filter cleaning. I wanted to start with air filter cleaning, but stupid me placed the toolkit under the hood and a spanner fell inside just behind the fan. Seems it would take a while to get out. Lesson learnt. NEVER KEEP YOUR TOOLS IN THE ENGINE BAY.

    Venka, check the link given by patch boy. I have posted a pic of my pollen filter

    Naveen - What's the spanner size used for opening the Air filter box, Have got the Air filter but never got around changing it. Will get it done before today if possible.

    Yes, it is no.7 spanner to remove the air filter bolts. Just, got my air filter cleaned. I found a dead butterfly in the air filter!

    So, I feel it is better to clean the air filter between TASS services.

    I found lot of difference in Pick up in mid range after cleaning Air filter... In my opinion we should replace / clean air-filter for 5K Kms.. as it is very easy job ...

    Ya whats wrong in keeping our fiat's nose clean. Replacing it gives healthy air intake for combustion.

    Replacement is a must in very dusty cities like chennai...
