Kit #: JKR100280 Pollen / Cabin Filter Service On Freelander 2002-2005, 6-Cylinder Gasoline, North American SpecificationHi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. And in this video we're going to touch base on another one of our maintenance items for the 2002 to 2005 Freelander which is a pollen filter replacement. Some people refer to these as cabin filters. Now this can be found on our maintenance and repair academy which you'll see on our website. You can also find a downloadable and printable sheet which gives you a lot of the recommended services for your Freelander at the recommended intervals. And you'll find here the pollen / cabin filter. Kit is JKR100280, pollen filter element. It is recommended every 15,000 miles. And that's based on general service. If you live in an area with a high pollen count or a lot of dust, you want to change them on a more often basis. Now again, this is your pollen filter. And again, this is a good maintenance item to keep track of because it does filter out pollens. If you have allergies this definitely can help reduce the amount of allergens in your vehicle. And along with dust and dirt. So, this is what you'll get with the kit. And we're going to show you now where it's located and how to replace it in your 2002 to 2005 Freelander. Okay, so, now we're going to show you how to install the pollen filter. The location is underneath the air box on the passenger side of the vehicle. And we've already taken the floor mat out of the way, and I'll explain why in just a few minutes. Okay, so, using a mirror we'll show you the location of the 4 screws that hold the bottom of the filter in place. It's 4 Phillips screws, 2 in the front, 2 in the back. And then I suggest using a shorty Phillips, or what they call a stubby Phillips screw driver, especially to remove the back righthand corner screw because it is tight up against the floor. And a full size screw driver usually won't fit. So we're going to take the 4 screws out now and then we'll show you how to remove this filter. Okay, so now we have the 4 screws out. We're going to lower the filter. Now the filter is designed to articulate or bend, because they obviously realize the straight cut filter or straight frame filter would not be able to be removed or installed. And you can see what happens. Not only does the filter itself get pretty bad, but the foam designed to help seal the outside edge of it does break down after a while. So, this filter is pretty much done. Very black. Filter basically dirty all the way to the very core, the base of it. But you can see how much dirt these actually filter out. You would normally be breathing this without a filter on this system. So, these cabin filters do come in very handy. So, we're going to discard this filter. Now look at the, observe the way it articulates because if you try to put this in the other direction it's not going to go in. We'll move this filter out of the way. We'll take the new filter. As you notice it does bend in the same direction. We get the one end set up in there. Now be gentle with it. Take your time. It's sort of a tight fit and you want to make sure you get this installed properly. There we go. Now, we'll just put our 4 Phillips screws back on. Now, the reason I took the mat out because you'll find that even just that slight difference in thickness from the front floor mat will make it harder to take the filter out. So I always remove the may first. Now after you get the filter back in place get your screws in. You are going to end up as you can see here with some residue and whatnot from the original foam around the filter. Just brush that up and whatnot. Put your mat back in place and you'll be good to go. So that's essentially replacement of the pollen filter. And as you see they do filter out quite a bit of dirt that would normally enter into the cabin area. So, when you're ready to change the filter over, just call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. And thanks for watching.
