I'm afraid not Mate, haven't found a need to yet.

Am tempted to have a go at the pollen filter though, as I didn't even know I had one.

Perhaps that'll improve the poor aircon/ventilation flow I've been putting up with for the past year.

I'll let you know if I get carried away & dismantle the glovebox too!

Cheers,

Rob

My results: The filter didn't seem to result in less dust in the vehicle (112) and A/C not effective as could be.
Removal of filter has provided massive boost in A/C performance and airflow now very good on first fan setting.
Position of filter worst design (apart from Peugeot307) I've ever seen!!! Access pitiful, doesn't protect fan and ducting from dust.
Seems to create slight negative pressure in cabin, resulting in dust ingress.

T4 VW had filter in engine bay - 2min job to remove clean and restore.

Conclusion - designers never actually work on teir creations.

Regards

The 639's pollen filter is also in the engine bay - takes 2 screws to remove.

This is quite easy. Youll need to lie on the floor, remove the kick panel so you can get acces under the dashboard, there are 3 plastic "pegs" on either side of the glove box section, I advise the use of a small headlamp so you can see what your doing.
These pegs are melted or glued into the holes and you will hve to either break or melt them out. I used a soldering iron to get mine out.
Then there are 4 or 5 flat "tabs" along the bottom on the inside, again glued or melted, same technique required.

Epoxy resin on all tabs and pegs to replace, line up the tabs on the bottom, pegs should just slide into place, tape up and leave to set.
You can only remove the section thats painted in the photo, the actual glove box holes are part of the dashboard itself.
