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? ohmy.gif

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!

Thank you both so much! It went right back in place - easy when you know what you're doing. wink.gif

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

Are there third party cabiin air filters available for the 451 at reasonable cost - and if so where (in Canada).

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.

Yup, $45 factory option and then only on cars with A/C.
