It's true... even mine was only lightly dusty but changing it was like doubling the power of the fans on each setting!

You argued with an idiot, I brought you down to my level and I beat you with experience.

Yes mate

If it's full of dust, the fans can't suck air from outside properly to blow into the car. After I changed mine, the #2 setting on the fan was like the fastest setting before I changed it!

I reckon every 2-3 years is a must personally, otherwise it's like asking an asthmatic kid with downs syndrome to toss Shifty's salad

That said I saved 60 grams on my DTM by not having a pollen filter. So f*ck you all.

Ignore most of the guide at the top, everyone I've changed has been done without removing the wipers.

If you are getting dust in then it's most likely missing or damaged. Usually it gets blocked and limits the air coming in rather than letting dust in.
