Question about the cabin ai filter and glove box
« on: February 08, 2014, 05:17:25 PM »
Hello, i have few questions about Ford Galaxy Mk1
I would like to know if the cabin air filter is behind the glove box? And if it is then how can you remove the glove box, maybe you can give me some hints.
The problem is that my blower aint really blowing (it does blow just on the windscreen), so my guess is that the filter is gone bad.

Welcome! The filter is in the same place for the Mk1 and Mk2, there is a how-to in the reference library on removal and replacement.

When you say the blower only works on the windscreen, could it be that the directional control for the heater box isn't working properly? The cabin air filter on the mk1 & 2 Galaxies is accessed from the engine bay, not from behind the glovebox, as Mirez said- the procedure for replacement is covered here
