Pollen Filter

Postby floppy » Tue 07 Jul 2009 11:47 am

Is it possible to retro fit a Pollen Filter to my 2002 TD5 GS? My son is murdered with Hayfever and I am thinking of this as an aid for him. If it can be fitted where does it go?

The D1 or D2 don't have have a pollen filter only the foam stuff at the rear of the bonnet to catch flies, leaves etc.

If you had one it would be at the begining of the air intake to the heater unfotunatly thats underneath the base of the windscreen on the nearside leaving little room to fit a standard pollen filter housing.

I surpose a small filter and a box to fit it in, along with a bit of ducting, could be made to fit in front of the disco's air intake.

Then make a hundred more, I sure they would sell :D

You might be better sticking one of these up your nose rather than trying to make a disco pollen proof.

Yeah right Dave, if you never want to speak to a member of the opposite sex, ever again. :lol: :lol: :lol:



This wouldn't be the answer to the replacement airfilter debate would it??

I asked my son what he thought of the breathepure and he said he would rather sneeze than put them up his nose :lol:

What about some light gauze or foam instead of what is there now? I know it would reduce air flow and put extra strain on the blower motor but i have lived with a hay fever sufferer before.

Wouldn't make any difference mate, the intake hole is under the windscreen, and it would still pick up airflow from the engine bay. Can't see it making any difference.

It does however look about the same size and shape as the cab filters we use at work. I'll have a measure up and let you know.

I thought the only air intake was the strip thats the length of the car just under the screen that can only be seen when the bonnet is open? Or is there somewhere els?? :?

Yes James, if you look under the black moulding on the passenger side you will see a black duct about 50mm high protruding through the bulkhead. This takes the air to the fan unit above the passengers footwell. As already mentioned there is no space between this duct and the panel above it to fit a filter and any attempts to improve on the foam screen at the base of the windshield will not stop pollen laden air from get in.

Thanks guys. It looks like he will just have to live with it :( . A quick fix seems to be out of the question.
