Hi there, I'm a long time lurker who used the advice and experience given here to choose my current car, a beautiful 2007 XJ 2.7D Sovereign with 44K miles that I've had since Nov 11 and I STILL go into the garage in the evening just to look at it (the wife thinks I'm nuts).

So it's just been in for the first service with me as the owner and the garage (main dealer) reports that the pollen filter is very mucky. They wanted a-hundred-and-something-silly to change it. I politely declined and will do it myself.

Can anyone point me at the correct part online so I can order it? I read that the cabin filter should be done at the same time. And anyone with instructions on how to find it and change it would be super-helpful. It can't be that hard can it, surely, ....

Regards,
- Andy

Pollen/cabin filter ? There is an air conditioning filter, housed on the left side(open the bonnet)and you'll see it just in front of the windscreen. I replaced mine last month.... about £11 and a stock item. Leave it too long and you'll find foul smell sucked into the cabin. It can also be cleaned and put back. There is no other.

Lift your bonnet and you will find the pollen filter lurking under a plastic cover just below the wiper on the passenger side of the car.

Mine has a Ford pollen filter 2W93-19G244-AB.
I usually just blow the dust out, although I must admit that I drive with recirc on all the time as I cant stand exhaust fumes

Which service was it in for?

Only the pollen filter(s) are on the list for 32k and 64k miles. If it was one of those (unlikely, I know, given your quoted mileage) it should have been done anyway. But £100+ is ridiculous for a ten minute job on a ten pound component.

Having said which, the supplying main dealer for my 2.7 TDVi managed to ignore the split wiper blades, overfilled the sump and there's no trace of grease on the door check arm, (they did do a lovely valeting job) on the pre-delivery complimentary service, so perhaps worth checking if they should have done it but didn't?

And I agree, it's still a wonderful car.

It was in for the 75K (5 year) service. Now I've got the car back and read the report - the engineer raised concern that both the pollen and engine air filters were so dirty that he thought they could not have been changed at the 60K service (12K miles ago according to the records I received when I bought it). They quoted £45 and £75 for replacing the pollen and engine air filters, respectively. Now I've got both parts on the way I should be able to change them myself and learn a little more about where things are under the bonnet in the process.

Thanks for the link, I just ordered both the pollen and engine air filters.
Confusing..... engine air filter is the one which supplies air to be mixed with fuel ? Pollen filter....in the air con system which just filters incoming air whether it has pollen or whatever else might come along...? I have a K&N one for the former and it's about £50 and just £10 for the other one. Can't see there is a specific pollen filter and another elsewhere for the air con system.

Is the x type pollen filter a long thin one for the petrols? I'm looking on eBay at them. Anyone knows the genuine Jag part number?
