How To Replace the Air Cabin (AC) Filter on a 2006 VW Passat 2.0 T.

Changing the Air Cabin (AC) Filter on your VW yearly is a very good practice especially if you suffer from seasonal allergies or commute in an area with lots of construction and road work. The filter element is not an expensive repair at all. You can purchase an OEM Air Cabin (AC) Filter with discounted prices ranging from $11-$18 for a replacement part, and a yearly replacement interval. Why not eliminate unpleasant odors and enjoy cleaner fresh air while driving your VW.


The Air Cabin (AC) Filter is located under the glove compartment in front of the passenger front seat. 
Start by removing the 2 black plastic knobs that fasten the black foam cover.
This is the Air Cabin (AC) Filter compartment. You need to slide the black filter base cover to the right first and then pull it down to remove it.
This is the Air Cabin (AC) Filter Element.
Place a plastic bag or cover beneath the filter, then pull the Air Cabin (AC) Filter element down to remove it. By doing so, you will not have the dirt and debris from the filter falling on the passenger side foot compartment.
Insert vertically the new Air Cabin (AC) Filter Element
Place the filter base hooks into the filter slots as shown in the images below.
Push the filter into the compartment completely and then fasten the base by sliding it to the left side.
Put the foam cover back into place.
Fasten the foam cover by locking in the 2 plastic black knobs.
