Finished my service; all fluids and filters!
Thanks all for the previous advise on home servicing. Just finished a full service on the van today! Anyone wanting any tips I can share. Also a lot of my info found on these forums so big thanks to everyone.

Completed the following:
- Oil and filter change. 4 litres oil, new sump plug and filter.
- Cleaned and re-oiled K&N air filter
- Fixed annoying rattling air pipework! Some screws and cable ties involved there!
- Cleaned out a tonne of leaves and crap from behind fan and radiator!
- Changed pollen filters
- Changed fuel filter
- Changed antifreeze and dot 4 (full flush on both)
- Replaced faulty servo on air recirculation that was getting stuck closed
- Fixed squeaky clutch slave arm
- Full engine bay clean
- Checked EGR and MAF and cleaned as had a few OBD pre warns on those. (all clear now)
- Replaced side lights with a newer LED (brighter and whiter)
- Replaced blown lamps on heater controller (very annoying to change!)
- Fitted a new sim card into my tracker
- 4 new tyres
- New aerial
- Refreshed some of the sign writing with new and updated some stickers
- Checked brakes, shocks, springs, full underbody check and a bit of a clean.

It sounds pretty comprehensive, what's the service interval on sticker replacement ? Wink
So where does this bit go then ?

I have no idea. It was my sign writing that faded so I replaced it!
Brilliant photo, thanks. Is bumper removal needed for a standard service, or are you just being super-thorough?

I'm guessing that's the air filter next to the fan (correct?). Edit: Or is it the air con condenser? Where's the pollen filter? I'd like to know how I can check that the garage change mine. I'm not as adventurous as you - I used to do everything but the oil on my previous car (including a K&N), but I've got to keep the warranty going for now at least.
that's the intercooler to the left of the fan...

I know a pollen filter is inside up near the pedals, don't know if our garage has changed it yet, but it took him a while to even see it..

Blimey - I just searched and got someone's description of how to change it...

having eventually got round to replace the pollen filter after being sold the wrong filters(filter box contains 2 filters) to get at the pollen filter look under the steering column,remove panel by giving a sharp tug with one hand(held on with clips)once panel is removed proceed to remove panel in front off the pedals held in location by 3 plastic spuds,once panel is removed look into the area at back of heater assy look for black cover which can be pulled out, once removed you should see end on one of two pollen filters which have tabs for pulling out of area at rear of heater,the second half is then pulled up before being able to be pulled out quite difficult as room is limited in getting old filters out and the 2 new filters pushed into the location for holding them give yourself plenty of time to do the job best of luck

I think I'll just have to trust the garage have done it then.
I didn't need to remove the bumper. I had other stuff to do that needed it off; and it's easy to remove anyway
