Air filter replacement
#1
Everything is complicated about this engine, glow plugs right at the back, fuel rail connector deep in the bowels of the engine and now I have just found the air filter, a bit that needs changing every few thousand miles tucked right at the back needing several things removing just to get at it, are the frogs off their rockers?

Yes, that is ridiculous. Oh for the days when it sat in a metal container on top the carburetor (and petrol cost $0.25/gal.)
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP.  Persamos green.

Actually its done, less than half an hour but still idiotic place for it especially when there is a big empty space right in front of the battery. Just for reference, there was no need to unbolt the MAF sensor from the top of the air filter, it cam out easily with it still attached.

Glad you figured it out. Where most go wrong is in trying to remove the whole air filter housing, once you find the screws to get the lid off it is quite easy. Much easier 2nd time around.

You could put a K&N air filter in part number 332847 won't need to look at it for another 50'000 mile's .

I'd still be cleaning and oiling it every ten k so not really saving any effort, if anything it's more effort ?

A K&N air filter being used in normal road use will go between 50,0000 & 100,000 mile,s with out cleaning dry dusty country 25'000 mile,s with out cleaning just looked on their site.

How many times have you changed an air filter at 20k and it has feathers/oil/dust/muck stuck in it, if you times that by five I know I wouldn't want that in my air box!

Peugeot say a 1.6hdi can have its oil changed at 20k, how well does that work out??

And if I'm taking it out to blow it out I'm sure as heck gonna clean it and re-oil it! Wink
