    bump bitches, anyway I just brought some charcoal filters for my in house air filter and decided to cut one up to fit in the Vf. Seems to be working a treat!

    My right hand was cut last weekend in the process of removing the ineffective factory-installed "bug and leaf screen", and putting in a cabin pollen filter (K&N). Prised out 6 scrivets which was sufficient to wrangle up enough of an opening to squeeze in, get the screen out and fold in the new pretty-in-pink one. I used a fish hook taped to a pencil to punch through and "grab" the (putrid) mesh filter. The plastic fascia snapped down on my hand during withdrawal - - really isn't all that easy for one person to do, in the rain! This small upgrade put a stop to the oddity of having an asthma attack while driving!

    Wow! Haven't tried a K&N air filter. Feel like K&N is overpriced

    They are a little on the exxy side, but they've been around for a very long time (1969, I think). I had a round one in my Mitsubishi "Sopwith" Sigma In 1983, but was probably too often distracted by having to repair the bloody thing to notice what the fancy pink filter was doing...

    Also got high flow air filter in VF SV6 which replaced a ghastly grey paper affair that obviously was past its use-by date. I make no supporting claims about "improved horsepower" or "better engine response" as published by K&N (and seemingly enthusiastically embraced by fans). FWIW, there was not a "plain Jane" Repco equivalent filter available, so with the K&N high flow air filter already in the airbox, I thought no harm in going for a K&N pollen cabin filter too! No more asthma attacks while driving, so it must be doing its job!

    Okay probley just don't use a charcoal filter. Turned car on this morning and came up with service esp, after reading fourms, could be anything but my bet is the air filter i put in. Anyway il take it out when I finish work and see how that goes.

    ESP = Electronic Stability Program, the warning won't have anything to do with the cabin air filter.

    Come to think of it, don't think I've plugged in the sensors when I was cleaning the intake and throttle body

    Went & changed my mesh 'filter' for a genuine Holden Pollen filter yesterday. Easy peasy just followed the instruction sheet that was in the box. It even came with a warranty record card that the dealer would complete & send into Holden.

    I thought the same thing the other day so jumped on eBay and found this for a bargain.
    They also have a deal buy 2 and get $9 off the purchase price. 6CFB4CDF-C8BC-4C65-802A-059CE6279FD7.jpeg

    yeah my mines been in a year and have one waiting to go in, so thought about changing it, but I've only done 700kms in that time, so might hold off.

    Wait, you replaced the engine air cleaner with a charcoal filter? No way that's a good idea.
    Thread is about the cabin air filter.

    ahh, no. Put the charcoal filter inside the cabin filter.
