    15k is way too much for the pollen filter to survive. i would recommend cleaning every 2k kms. acc variants will have trouble cleaning frequently but manual ac have very easy access to the filter.

    Practically no presence of FASS and TASS stopped keeping spares for punto.
    So only option is 99rpm and get it done from local mechanic. :)

    Why local mechanic? It's a DIY job taking maybe 10-15 minutes.

    Absolutely. If you do not have B&M, all you will need is a screwdriver, assuming the lid is screwed down (missing in my Jet). Should take about 90 seconds.

    If you have B&M, it is a bit more laborious, but still you will just need a screwdriver. It might take 10 mins

    Not sure about the fuel filter. I guess it's better to go to a mechanic then. However, air filter & pollen filter are very much simple DIY replacements. There's another thread here on Pollen filter change where Vijay Khasa has posted a video. Here -

    There is a provision for a screw though. Looks like none of the cars have it :D
