From the Topix instructions you need to remove the glove box and then it is behind it. Reminds me of the pain to remove the cabin filter in my Saab 9-5. Of course it could not be as simple as my XJ8 or my wife's former CX-9!

The dealer should change it when it's scheduled to be due, during one of the annual Service calls...So for five years, don't worry about.

Trust me, that thing needs to be changed annually if you do any miles... You won't believe how bad they look after 12-15K miles...
Learn how to do it and do it every year, your schnozz will thank you !

I can't argue with you...If your climate is dusty or damp with a lot of mold...then I can see the need for more frequent changes...But you'll know after the first time you change it, when the frequency will be best served.;)


BTW; Where the h3ll do you live?..Put that in your info.;)

Are there instructions anywhere online for removing the glove box and changing the filter?

Hey folks, don't let this thread an not let it get away from you, as it is important. The first time I changed mine in my Q5 (easy 10 minute job) I was shocked! It was as black as the Ace of Spades. I could not believe it could possibly that that nasty. The only place you could see any white was in the paper frame. It was 50 times or more worse than the filters in my house.

Has anybody changed theirs out yet before service or know for a fact that they will do that on the 20K maintenance cycle?

It isn't another useless service they try to sell you, it is for real!

See post #5 above... I've changed many of them and most everyone is SHOCKED how bad they look. I'd never go over a year on em...! Removing the glove box looks daunting but it usually isn't that hard....

In my old car, the cabin air filter was located behind the glove box. You would have to open the glove box and push in on the sides of the glove box. That would allow two small support tabs to move past the outer sides that hold the glovebox in place and then you could lower it all the way down and gain access the cabin air filters. Perhaps that's how to access the F-PACE cabin filters as well?

Just to give a heads up..the cabin air filter takes a lot of doing to get to..true it is behind the glove box, but the left side of the car's dash has to be removed to get to it besides just removing the glove box, it is a royal PIA to change.

Just asking , but is there any reason they wouldn't change this at all during 5/60? Is it not a required service say annually? It's certainly not a lifetime part.... I don't know of any filter on any vehicle that goes 5/60 as part of its normal course of life....

Along this line, is there a concise way to under stand just what will and will not be changed under the 5/60 maintenance wise for any engine/model?? Or things that MAY need to be changed/done but they will NOT cover?

According to the Passport to Service, Pollen Filters are covered at service intervals -
3L Gas - every service, or 16k miles
2L Diesel - every-other service, or 20k miles

Having said that, I’m sure they replaced the filter in the 20d at least once. The glove box hinge pin surround was buggered up on one side, and there were small scratches around some of the fasteners. The filter was fairly clean. The R-Sport was another story. I’ve only passed through (1) scheduled interval (I paid for an “Intermediate” Service/oil change). I have a fairly good feeling that filter didn’t get changed at 16k. I was getting a hint of something damp or moldy every so often, which is why I decided to change it. All of the fasteners and surrounding areas were pristine/looked untouched. I had to use an impact driver to break a few fasteners loose. The filter was way too dirty to only have 6k miles on it. I have it sealed in a plastic bag for exhibit “A” on my next visit.

In with the Owner’s Manual. There’s a supplemental booklet - about 50 pages. I believe the Jaguar site has the electronic version available for download as well.
