MK8 Air Filter Location

Recommended Posts

Hello,

would anybody be able to point me in the direction of the air cabin filter? 

In my previous car it was behind the glove box that needed removing, not 100% sure if that is the case with the MK8 Fiesta too.

thank you in advance 🙂

I've not done one yet, bits it's behind the lower trim to the left of the pedals. Prise the square looking bit of trim cover off the reveal a torx screw. Remove screw then slide the trim forwards and off. Then there's a plastic panel on heater box with 4 small screws, remove the screws and take panel off , pollen filter out. Job done . Sounds alot but shouldn't take more than 5 mins to replace it.

5 minutes Ian?  I was expecting better from you, closer to the 40 second mark to beat your mk2.5 time lol

At a garage would take seconds, well seconds to get the new filter , drop it on the floor, foot on it and rub it in dirt( to make it look like the old one ) then Chuck it in the bin. Job done. You may think I'm joking but I've heard it happen at the bigger dealerships .
