Hi, Does anyone know if teh big filter will fit mine ? i'm changing the oil tommorow.B6 1.8Ts use a slightly larger filter, but i found a monster from a transporter that fits too:
Left is the normal 75mm filter specced for B5 1.8T's
Middle is the number mentioned above, standard fit on B6 models, and usually recommended by audi for the earlier engines too
Right is the filter from the VW Transporter. You can see the WIX part number in the photo, and your local factor should be able to cross reference it with whatever brand they sell.
Middle one is a standard 1.9 tdi passat AFN engine code and the big one is for a transporter t4 2.5 tdi ACV/AJT engine 88/102Bhp...i have fitted loads of them on petrol cars with no ill effects.Yeh the massive one is currently on there.
It will be fitting the mid sized one at the next oil change, mainly because i forgot to bring the part number with me when i went to the factors to buy the filter, so just ordered a B6 one.
