    Default Halfords........am I going mad???

    needed an air filter for my 02 2.2dti, so I used their reference book and it said I needed HAF374.

    bought it and then took the old one out and it was about a third smaller.

    took it back to exchange and I had bought the right one according to the book.

    I exchanged it for the petrol version which was larger (HAF366) and that was too small as well.

    so - what is the right one before I go mad and attack some teenager behind the desk.........lol?

    not really - i bet i would lose........

    please help.......

    the size of my one is 240 x 310 x 55mm if it helps.

    Take the Halfords one back and get a refund and then go to the dealers and get one or buy a K&N

    Weird as I was under the impression they are all the same size with the exception of early 1.8s
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I had a K&N in mine, it ran fine, in fact so 'ok' that I took it out as it did'nt make the blindest bit of difference on an otherwise standard car.
