Air Filter Replacement (V6)


Just got done replacing the airfilter on my Cayenne V6. It is very easy and took me a total of 15 minutes to do. I took a few snapshots of the process. (I KNOW, I KNOW, MY ENGINE BAY IS FILTHY!) 1. First you need to remove the right side engine compartment cover. It is held on by 4-45 degree turn plastic screws.

Thank you very much for taking the time to take the pictures and make the post. My 2006 is about ready for a filter change too...have you changed the cabin filter too by chance? I imagine I need to do both...Thank you again! Best regards, Bill

Have since sold the Pepper but IIRC it was extremely easy to do the cabin filter.

Thanks, LV-

I too appreciate that you took the time to post this helpful thread. I waqs stumped at how to remove the little plastic screws, but your post solved that problem, and probably saved me from screwing up the air filter box, or the connection to the intake.

By the way, if you remember, where is the cabin air filter located. I replaced one in my BMW 7 series and it was ridiculously difficult to get at, and to remove. (Maybe that's why it appeared the first owner had never changed it, and it was almost completely stopping the air flow from the heat/AC unit)

Gratefully,

Dave

You, Good Sir, just saved me a trip to my Indy and about $80 in labor for my cabin and air filter. So glad I found this site, and I'll be contributing as I learn on mine.
