yeh the are two of them, take note on how they come out its a little fiddly to get them back in.  easy enough job though
No point in doing half a job, it will only get you half way home.

Yep can confirm there is one on top of another - like richij said above they can be tricky to get back in so patience will be priority  :)

As for price, i paid around £17 for a blueprint cabin filter, & decided to spray a little calvin klein on it before installing to give the car an added boost of 'essence of man' lol

Hi Meddylad, thanks for your info.
 I had my 2010 TS2 serviced a month ago and the pollen filters were filthy as I asked the service manager to keep them for me and he showed me how they go together in the housing.
However I need to change said filters on my daughters 2005 TS as they were last done 2010
My local factor keeps Blueprint parts so I think they will be the same size as fitted to my car.
They can be cheaper on the bay but ill go with my factor.
Thanks and regards Keith h

hi keith, I have changed the filters twice on my car since owning it.
I always use after market filters made by MANN they are a very good quality and come with a step by step guide on fitment included on a leaflet inside the box.
the filters have a arrow on them to show in what direction they face.
rear windows tinted black,carbon fibre pillar trims,stainless steel scuff plates,led interior roof bulbs,led number plate bulbs and piano black handbrake lever handle + leather gaitor.blue alloy tax disc holder,badges painted metallic black,silver painted dash and console,carbon stubby aerial

Thanks for that Newbs mate. Shall bell my local factor to see if he can get Mann filters.
 I assume  the ones that fit 2005 models through to 2010 onwards are the same?
Thanks again keith h

So it seems that BK and BL series shares the same pollen filter? It'd be good cause I can't seem to find BL filters when I searched on eBay. They all come up with BK filters...

Just FYI… on the new 2014 Mazda 3’s the Pollen filter is a doddle to replace…
Open the glove box
Squeeze the sides and pull down
Behind you will see the side of the filter with a lug...
Grab the lug a pull it out… no tools required
