Retrofitting the External Charcoal/Pollen Filter on Golf VII 7The open port net on the external air intake vent is subjective. Dirt and grim plus insects would get through the gaps.
|The original screen housing on the Golf VII 7|
|Dirt and road grim get pass the screen and end up inside the cabin and|
get stuck at the pollen filter inside
|It is fortunate that there is a pollen filter built before the evaporator|
|The replacement filter housing with the carbon impregnated|
|The air quality sensor is fitted as per original position|
|The rain water deflector is refitted into position to complete the job|
Adding to the work, I replaced the old carbon impregnated filter with the latest Volkswagen anti-allergies carbon filter. This part have only been recently introduced. Cost slight more than the normal carbon filter.
|New Anti-Allergies Carbon Filter vs Normal Carbon Filter|
|The Choice is obvious|
Now, the air smell so much fresher and cleaner with the new set up. Well worth the money spent to make the occupants healthier and alert !
