Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club
As its such a popular car i thought there would be lots of photos / youtube info but im not having much lucky .

I've found the air filter and read where the oil filter is but i cant find any info on the fuel and pollen filter

thanks nyck
The oil filter is on the back of the engine block. Just a normal spin-on cartridge.

The fuel filter is located on the right of the cylinder head. Just pull the engine cover off and you will see it, a round thing with a couple of pipes going to it.

The pollen filter is behind the dash and accessed from the passenger footwell, you need to remove a couple of bits of trim, then just slides out. Can be a fiddly job.
i changed the air/oil/fuel filter but still having trouble finding the pollen filter in the footwell.Theres a black cover that comes off and then theres a plastic panel with lots of wires and plugs but i cant see whwere the filter should go???

Heres how you do it. (taken from another website :o )

1) Filter is located in a vertical orientation at the very back of the heating and ventilation unit.
2) Filter cover is fitted using 3 or 4 off 7mm hex screws (mine had 3 fitted).
3) Access is from passenger foot well.
4) Remove side panel attached by 2 off T25 screws behind covers.
5) Remove the 2 off 13mm nuts that fix the main fuse board bracket; this allows you to drop the main fuse board down out of the way.
6) If you have a Ghia there is an air-con pipe for the cooled glove box. This is in the way and cannot be removed from the heating and ventilation unit. However it can be disconnected at the glove box end (simple push fit).
7) You can now remove the pollen filter cover screws and remove and replace the filter. You may have to flex the filter to get it in as you can't get straight access to it.
