2005 Cayenne Turbo Air Filter Change

2005 Cayenne Turbo Air Filter Change

I recently changed my air filter on my 2005 Cayenne Turbo, and here's is how I went about. It took a while, but not bad considering I had no idea how to do it. I saw another article here on air filter change, but the problem is that on a Turbo, the air goes from the air filter to the turbots and then to the intake (vs. from the air filter straight to the intake on a regular V8), meaning the plumbing is not the same. I believe this is will also work on a Cayenne S, but I'm not 100% sure. Couple

This is a great post. The only thing I have to add is be careful with all clips . I dropped a couple { not the engine cover clips but the piece they clip into , they somehow popped out } and had to remove the covers under the car to find them { I did find them } Also and I don't know how but one of the spring clips that hold the cover on came out and fell behind the air filter housing which I also removed { I know clumsy me ] to find the clip. With a little patience and determination I was able to get the filters changed. It took a bit more time looking for lost clips but I saved a few $$$$'s from what a shop wanted to charge. If I can do it anyone can.

Hi, thanks for this post which I got across while searching on an answer on how actually to remove the air hose from the passenger side air cleaner box after retracting the green ring... I did pull by hand, trying not to load too much sideways, but it does not want to come off. I am wondering what amount of hand force was required or whether you used and lever / fork to or other tooling to get it off . Does the actual stud has any groves/bumps where the connector clips in (just to get a better idea about the forces form the stud design point of view...)? Thx

OK...sorry-too simple if I knew a little more about plumbing (or would have thought about how I installed a reverse osmosis water filter in the kitchen a while ago...) The key is to compress the entire fitting to release the self-lock before you pull. THen it's very easy to remove.
