    Default V6 CDTI Air Filter

    I ordered an air filter today from local VX dealer, when they delivered it and i opened the box it appears to be different to the currently fitted.
    The current air filter fitted by a VX dealer at the last Ecoflex service has a lyer of foam stuck to paper element, which would appear to act as a pre filter and the filter delivered today doesnt have the foam. Upon contacting the parts dept they assure me that it is the correct filter for the car and they have never heard of a air filter with a foam pre filter. I am a some what cautious of my local vx dealer though as they recently tried to convince me that 10w30 semi synthetic oil was right for my car. Any advice would be warmly welcomed.

    I too have never heard of a layer of foam on an air filter ... perhaps the factory/last person to replace it forgot to take the packing off the filter?? I replaced my air filter for it's first service and neither the new filter nor the one that was fitted at the factory had this.

    The early models with this engine had a filter with cotton wadding as well as the paper element. I have never seen one with foam.

    When I had to complain about smoke 3 years ago they were told by Vx to change the filter to the modified type without the cotton wadding as the filter was stopping sufficient air getting through!. All now are just with the paper element.
