Volkswagen Air Filter

There are two first air filters in your Volkswagen. The engine air filter is located in the engine bay and is used to filter out adverse and unpredictable particles that may cause damage to your vehicle's engine. If the engine air filter is not replaced perfectly at the appropriate intervals, the build-up can affect the performance of your engine and lead to both a loss of power and loss in fuel efficiency.

The cabin air filter is located either behind the glove compartment, under the dashboard, or under the hood of your car. Frequently, it will be located behind the glove box. Just like engine air filters, cabin air filters in your Volkswagen are designed to evenly clean the air as it moves through your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system. The cabin air filter removes allergens such as pollen and dust. It will still trap pollutants such as smog & mold or other dangerous fumes.
