Mk5 VW Golf 2.0 GT-TDI Pollen filter change

Here is my thread about changing my pollen filter on my Mk5 VW Golf 2.0 GT-TDI. I bought my pollen filter a VW dealer because I only use genuine VW parts on my car.

The pollen filter housing is located in the footwell of the front passenger seat of the car (excuse the mess)

Just underneath the glovebox you will see 3 torx screws, undo these

Looking up underneath the footwell you will see a grey polystyrene cover with 2 screws in the middle, you can unscrew these by hand

The cover is flexible so with care remove the cover by pulling it away at the corners. the people who did it before i owned the car ripped it abit.

Looking at the back you can now see the pollen filter housing

the cover at the bottom slides back, so just grab the bottom and move it to the left (nearside wheel). Pull off the cover

You now have access to the pollen filter, remove it. (quite abit of debris
comes out), (remember the shape of the pollen filter because they will only go in one way)

install the new pollen filter in the same way that you removed the old one

at the bottom of the pollen filter there are slots that are for the cover connections, make sure these are located properly (can be abit tricky since your in a awkward position)

replace cover by pushing up and sliding to right.

you said there are 3 torx screws do you really need to remove them?
Or just the two on the foam cover?

Hi, been away for awhile. If I remember correctly, you need to remove all three. The third being on the plastic trim, in the horizontal plane.

I bought my Golf V 1.9Tdi a couple of years ago on long life service and when it came up I decided to do the service myself and change all four filters fuel, oil, air and cabin.

My cabin filter was similar state, dirty and full of bits

Unfortunately VW parts are just too dear from a dealer so I used MAN aftermarket for all. Top quality OEM parts at a reasonable price. The cabin filter comes with or without carbon (not sure about the VW part) but it was only a quid or so more so got that. Apart from the oil filter that's it for a few years
