How do you replace air filter 2002 vw passat?
All you need to do is open up your hood. Then on the left side should be your air intake. Take off the cover and there should be some clips around the outside of the box that you unclip. Also loosen and detach the big tube in the front. When that is off and the clips are off just lift up the top part of the intake and your filter should be right there!

I have been informed that the fuel filter in a 1999 VW Passat is located underneath the car, near the right rear wheel, mounted to the frame. It is supposedly covered by a bla…ck cover and relatively simple to replace. I am not sure what tools are needed as we are going to attempt that tonight. ! Answer The fuel filter is located the right rear wheel in front of the rear axle. Answer The fuel filter is located in the engine bay of my Passat (2000 reg). Its right beside the oil filter located under the engine cover. There are two different filter types for the Passat - mine has a number of pipes conencted to the top. The piece with all of the pipes is not the filter however but rather the cylindrical object it is screwed into.

Front left corner of the engine compartment.. Answer . the air filter on a 1.8T passat is hiding under the plastic behind the passenger's side headlight. You need to take …off the flat plastic piece first. The there's a heat shield that needs to be removed (phillips screws). This will expose clips holding the upper and lower halves of the air filter housing. You unclip and pull the upper half away from the bottom. This will expose the air filter element. Don't forget, you have a pollen air filter for the interior air too. It's under the cowl, under the passenger's wiper blade area. There are several T20 torx fasteners holding the plastic in place. The pollen filter's under there.. Answer . It's in your air box (usually black) under your hood. If you aren't sure contact your local dealer or buy a Haynes book for you year model and make.. Answer . Front left hand corner behind headlight. BE PREPARED FOR THE HEAT SHIELD SCREWS, they are very,very hard to get to, especially the lower screws. I had to go out and but a special screwdriver to get this done. .
Open the hood. As you face the car, the airbox will be on your left side. You need to remove a small cover over it by gently pulling up on it. Then remove the air inlet tube o…n the front by gently pulling it off. Remove the heat shield. It is held on by two Phillips screws, and it is very tight so have a very very short screwdriver with a very sharp and good condition tip on hand. You will probably scrape your knuckles, this part is the reason i usually have it done by somebody else when it is in for other service. Under the heat shield there are two clips holding the top of the air box down. Use a flat screwdriver to pry they open. Unhook the vacuumm hoses from the top of the airbox so you can move it around, I usually have to disconnect the 90 degree hose in the corner but mine is a 2003 and there may be a minor variation in the hoses. Pull the cover up a few inches, grab the air filter and pull it out. This is a good time to vacuum out and wipe down the inside of the airbox. Also a very good time to remove, clean, and dry the pre-filter (some people call it the slush screen). It is fastened to the inside of the airbox with a single Phillips head screw; you can probably leave it out if you are so inclined, mine has been out since 2003 without any problems and lots of winter driving in MI and CO. Carefully push the new air filter through the gap between the box and the cover, and push the foam seal down all the way around. Place the cover on top of the foam seal, make sure it is lined up all the way around, and snap the two retainers back into place. It is helpful to use a flat screw-driver to push the retainers into place as you use your bodyweight to push the cover down because it is a pretty tight seal. Replace the hoses, heatshield, inlet hose, and cover. Put your tools away and you are done.
go to your local auto shop and tell them you need a headlight screwdriver and you'll get one then when you open your hood there are the screws on top take it out and take out …the old one but be very careful and put in the newones and screw em back in also just one more thing its a pretty easy job. I changed mine and it took no less than 20 mins and I'm only 16 and I'm not an underground mechanic.
It's in the engine compartment on the passenger side toward the windshield under a black plastic cover. It requires no tools to replace and only takes a few minutes. Pull the …weatherstripping foward, exposing where the cover meets the body and lift the passenger side of the cover enough to get your arm inside. You'll see the filter - originally white, probably faded to grey or black now - held in by a little plastic clip. Pull off the clip, remove & replace the filter - "flow" arrow points down - and replace the clip. Make sure the plastic cover lines up properly when you put it back down - it should sort of "settle" into place. The weatherstripping is the same way - if you press it firmly all the way along, including the side where it meets the fender, it shouldn't have any slack. The part number for the filter is 1H0 819 644B, it lists for $17.18 at the dealer. The same filter also fits many Golfs, Jettas, and TTs of the same vintage so parts stores should have it in stock. -jonah
Work it, work it . I believe if you look in the engine compartment up under the dash/windshield area you will spot a box looking thing and that's the cabin air flilter, if …my memory serves me right. Good luck. If you are a clever girl or in need of help guy, you could go into the VW parts department and ask the guy behind the counter where it's located. Don't go into service and ask 'cause they work on commission and they want to charge you $120/hour to check and them etc. If you get my drift. I always have my way with the parts department 'cause they want to be hero's for the girls and big brother for the guys. Very cool.
It is located under the grey engine cover on top of the engine. I have yet to figure out to remove it. VW ensures it is hard to remove, to protect the dealers...
K&N is a very well known brand. It does help improve airflow for extra horses and torque.
With the hood open, simply pull the weatherstrip from the front of the cowl, and then remove the entire plastic cowl cover. You will see it on the upper left side.
Behind the R-H headlight.
It's on the passenger's side of the engine compartment under two covers. The first cover (depending on the year) covers the battery. The second cover has one long Phillips scr…ew in the center. Remove that and you'll be able to pull the cover toward the front of the car and see the filter inside.
Just in front of the right rear tire as you look from under the vehicle. You will need to buy new hose clamps as the clamps that are factory installed are not reusable. The fi…lter is rather in expensive as are the clamps, and the entire job should take more than 3-45 minutes.
The air filter is located on the passenger side of the car, in the engine compartment, next to the fender. You would first need to remove the intake tube from in front of the …box. Then release the clasps that hold the air box cover in place. I've also included a video below in the "related links" section, that will show you exactly how to remove it. Hope this helps you out.
Look next to the tank near the passenger side rear wheel. The filters is typically secured with a hose clamp, and the lines are quick disconnect EFI lines that can be removed …(carefully!!!) from the filter by depressing the spring loaded button on the fuel line fittings and wiggling them off as you pull. Some fuel will splash out, so be sure to guard your face. When you install the new filter, be sure it is installed with the arrow pointing downstream towards the motor. EFI Fuel filters are much more efficient than old style fuel filters, and should outlast the life of the car, so there is usually no need to change it.
