The pollen/cabin filter is accessed from the passenger footwell under the glove box.
First remove the two clips holding the small piece of carpet, remove the plastic screw holding the fuse box lower it slightly then lift out of the hinged bracket, there should be enough slack to remove the three bolts holding the filter cover, once removed the filter should slide out.

Sounds easy but quite restricted for space, have added a couple off photo's to help you.

Thanks a million for the advice guys.

Did this today €23 for the filter, took about half an hour. was made easier by unclipping the fuses, everything started back up again ok.

just a small update for left hand drivers out there! the cabin filter is on the driver side and can be accessed by remiving the accelerator pedal!
