@  marchanna : (22 October 2014 - 05:34 AM) Not really. I love that you caught that. I accidentally typed that, and then I was going to correct it, and then I thought, "hmm, I wonder if I leave it there, if anyone would catch that".

The other day, by the looks of it, an air filter fell out onto my feet? Does anyone have any idea if it is the cabin air filter or what it is? Also if it is important or how I can put it back? I looked but can't see where it goes? :o

If you look behind the pedals to the right there's a slot with a cover on it for the cabin air filter, open the cover and slide it back in.Hope this helps!

Wow, it's so much easier to change a 451 cabin filter than it is in a 450!

does every 450 have a cabin filter. I have to admit I have never changed mine. I think I will check it this weekend...

Many 450s came without the pollen filter, like my 2005 Pulse. I think it was an option selected by the buyer.B :sun:
