    Looks like it. Easy fix; did it on the 355.

    Youíre a star Jeff, many thanks, would never have found that

    Yep I think thatís the part which has snapped which is probably why theyíve had the sense to break with Ferrari tradition and not make it out of brittle plastic.

    Any tips welcome, Adrian. Itís snapped off so getting the broken end out of the actual unit (rather than the flap) may be a challenge. My guess is itís located in something which is also made of brittle black plastic?

    Unfortunately you have to take the liner out. Once thatís out, the motor is screwed on with a few Phillips screws. The broken bit will just pull off the motor. The broken bit on the flap can be pushed further in.

    Fairly easy to put it all back. Little jiggling to get everything all lined up but fairly easy.

    Thanks, much appreciated. I’ve had the liner mostly out before so I hope I should be able to gain access by doing the same. If not I’ll take it out completely.

    There's no need to butcher a filter. I've bought an off-the-shelf filter and with just a small amount of squeezing/flexing, put it in place.

    As shown on FerrariChat, a cabin air filter for 2010 Dodge Nitro - KA Petrol V6 3.7L will fit.

    It's a USA car, but you can get them online quite easily. I found some locally in Australia.

    It's a white filter and doesn't quite match the luggage compartment, but not much a sacrifice for allergy sufferers.

    In the meantime as I’m out in the car today for a bit, so I can cool the air inside the cabin without hoovering up pollen from outside in order to do it (really is bad here at the moment) I’ve rigged a highly technical alternative air redirection flap.

    With the inside redirection flap removed so air can circulate from right to left (from sitting in the driver's seat) through the system this does exactly the same as selecting ‘recycle air’ with the flap in place. Clearly you wouldn't do this with the redirection flap still in there but with it out this does precisely the same thing. If I want some fresh air I'll crack a window for a bit. Bit gash but will work until I fix the flap, fit a filter, the pollen level drops or more likely all of the above:

    I think this is the Ferrarichar artcle he was referencing

    https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/th....597182/page-2

    He mentions it has to be the Mann brand which you can buy off ebay.co.uk (no need to buy from abroad)


    Thinking of getting one myself as everyone in the family including myself suffer from hayfever.

    If you want to check the dimensions are:

    Filter Type : Particulate Filter
    Height [mm] : 20
    Length [mm] : 180
    Quantity Unit : Kit
    Width [mm] : 91
