Default Cabin/pollen filter

Can anyone tell me at which side of the centre console I get access to the cabin/pollen filters on a UK right hand drive Mazda 5 Sport. I have the downloaded service manual but I'm not clear whether it refers to right or left hand drive.

Thanks in advance,

Mozart.

I'd like to bump this up to the top of the list, because I'd like to know the answer to this too.

I haven't looked on ours but usually Japanese cabin filters are very easy to change and they're usually behind the glovebox. Some models you pull the glovebox down, squeeze the sides in and the whole thing hinges down . The filter is just behind under a clipped in panel.

However, some other cars on a Focus platform are more difficult to replace as the filter is behind the fuse/relay box. Focus and Volvo V50 for example. If I remember over the weekend I'll have a look.

Ok I found this http://www.mann-hummel.com/mf_prodka...u/HBPYljhZ.pdf

It's on the glovebox side. You have to remove the fusebox and it's mounting bracket. It's the same as the Focus and a bit fiddly to do. If you haven't done one before I'd allow about 40 mins to change it even if it does say you can do it 12 mins. There may be more room than in the Focus so it might be easier. The V50 took me the best part of an hour the first time I did one.

Thanks. Does look a little daunting!

My wife had the car in for servicing not too long ago and they wanted to replace this filter - they wanted something like $150 to do it!!! I am so thankfully she was smart enough to tell them I would do it. Can't imagine why it would cost so much for them...

Now I just have to go pick up a filter - any idea how much they cost? Do I have to go to Mazda, or are they pretty easy to find? (Canadian Tire? Lordco? UAPNAPA?)
