How do you replace air filter 2002 vw passat?
All you need to do is open up your hood. Then on the left side should be your air intake. Take off the cover and there should be some clips around the outside of the box that you unclip. Also loosen and detach the big tube in the front. When that is off and the clips are off just lift up the top part of the intake and your filter should be right there!

Head lamps are adjusted from above. Do the following: 1. Open the hood 2. Look on top by the head lamps you should see two service holes (one outer and one inner) where you will see a plastic adjustment screw which requires a hexagon wrench or a flathead screw driver that fits. Note the o…uter alignment screw is the hole located on top eg. driver side head lamps outter being the hole on the right side. inner being the alignment screw located in the hole on the left side of the driver side head lamp assembly. 3. lateral adjust/ horizontal adust is the right side hole.(which way to turn I've forgotten try incremental trial and error til you determine which way is left and which way is moving the beam to the right) 4. vertical adjust is the adjustment screw located on the leftside of driver side headlamps assembly from above. turn counter clockwise to raise and clockwise to drop. its been awhile so I'm not quite sure . 5. passenger side lateral and vertical adjust is symetrical. remember outter hole from above is lateral adjust and inner hole to the right in this case for passenger side is vertical adjust.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library. To get you started, there are screws under the mirror housing that allow you to remove the bo…ttom half of the housing. You can then remove the actual mirror by gently pulling out on the mirror as you lossen the clips (4 I think). As far as removing the housing, I never got that far, but you'll probably see how to do it once you get into the housing as described above. To remove the whole mirror ( the housing and everything) from the door you need to open the car door door and sit in the car. From inside the car you can see a small triangular piece of trim that sits on the inside of the car door. On my car this had a little speaker in it. You need to remove this piece of trim. Just slowly pull on it with your hands wiggling it as you go and it should pop loose. I wouldn't use a screw driver or anything narrow like that to pry it off as you might break the tabs that keep the trim attached to the door. Just go slow and it should pop out. The bottom half of this piece of trim is hidden behind the large door trim that covers the inside of your car door. If you lift up the small piece of trim it should slide up and clear of the large piece of door trim. Most of these cars have power mirrors. (If yours doesn't then you can skip this part.) So there will be wires that come from out of the mirror and slide down into the door. You need to disconnect these from inside of the door. To do that you will have to loosen the main piece of door trim to give you access to the inner part of the door. The Door trim panel is connected to the door in the same way as the little trim piece except that it has a couple of screws where the handle/armrest attach to through the trim to the door frame of the car. You can leave the screws. You just need enough access to disconnect the wires from the mirror. Also, leaving them in will help when you clip the door back together when you are down. Along the top of the door trim where the window comes out the trim is connected with in a long strip. Take a good look at this as yo pull it apart because it needs to go back the same way or your trim is going fell loose and flappy when you finish. Get a good light and squint down into the hole as you are pulling the trim back. GO SLOW. The little tabs that hold everything together are delicate and can break. Try not to pry to hard on anything just pull and wiggle. If you do need to pry on something try using a wooden spoon or a plastic spatula from the kitchen and not a screwdriver. Once you have loosened the trim up enough you can see where the wires go. They clp to other wires in the door. once you can get your fingers in there you can unclip them pretty easy. They are held on with little retainers that you need to push on so that they will release. OK. Now you should see a a funny looking bolt sticking out of the door where the little piece of trim was. Mine was a star drive bolt. You can go done to an auto parts store and get the right kind of driver or you can probably just use an Allen wrench that fits snugly in the bolt head. Undo the bolt and the mirror should come right off. Installation is the reverse of removal. Remember to connect the wires in the door if you have a power mirror. Remember to go slow and not force anything. If something isn't fitting right when you are putting things back together just be patient. You might have to back track a few times to get it right. You can do it! (MORE)
I have been informed that the fuel filter in a 1999 VW Passat is located underneath the car, near the right rear wheel, mounted to the frame. It is supposedly covered by a black cover and relatively simple to replace. I am not sure what tools are needed as we are going to attempt that tonight. ! An…swer The fuel filter is located the right rear wheel in front of the rear axle. Answer The fuel filter is located in the engine bay of my Passat (2000 reg). Its right beside the oil filter located under the engine cover. There are two different filter types for the Passat - mine has a number of pipes conencted to the top. The piece with all of the pipes is not the filter however but rather the cylindrical object it is screwed into. (MORE)

Not sure if it is exactly the same but generally speaking this may help. You can also look easily online for hands on instructions. FIRST as always disconnect the negative on your battery. On my 90 VW Passat there are a total of 4 bolts that hold the alternator in place. Two at the top left which ar…e associated with the slotted metal bar and two at the bottom (right and left) which allow the alternator to pivot back and forth along the slotted bar. Loosen the bottom two bolts then slowly the top bolt, do not remove any yet. Now if necessary slowly rotate/pivot the alternator loose. Now remove belt then all three bolts, then all small connectors on back of alternator as well (usually 3, label them if neccesary). Note you will need some long box mm wrench's to reach the bottom bolts. Keep all bolts and nuts and first inspect new alternator to make sure the old and new are the same. To replace follow the steps in reverse, ensuring little slack in tension. Check the link at right for more helpful deatils... (MORE)

I just changed the cabin filter in my '02 Beetle so can add to this answer. The filter is located under the passenger side of the dash and is moderately difficult to access and change. My old filter was black so am glad I invested the 2 hours to figure it out, though. To remove the passenger s…ide section of the dash it's first necessary to remove the raised center section, which requires sliding it towards the windshield. I did this by positioning the corner of one end of a small block of wood in the gap and gently tapping the other end with a hammer. Once loose it can be slid forward and lifted out of the way. Next remove the torx screws and funny washers nearest the windshield. The passenger side dash can then be detached by slowly lifting the left side of it straight up and then sliding it to the left. After disconnecting the speaker lead this section of the dash can be moved out of the way. Still another layer of plastic to take out: remove the 5 torx screws (2 forward, 3 aft) and jiggle the plate loose to expose the filter assembly. To get the filter out push the tabs of the frame slightly forward, lift the frame up, and pull it towards you. With some jiggling the frame + filter will come out. A couple of notes about installing the new filter: the arrows on the filter that indicate air flow should be pointing down when installed; the left and right sides of the frame extend down into the first and last pleats of the filter for proper positioning; the filter should be in the frame before placing it in the dash; it can take some finesse to properly position the filter and snap the frame in place; replacement filters can be purchased at a NAPA store, or online at www.micronair.us if you prefer OEM. I took pictures along the way but couldn't figure out to attach them to this posting. Best of luck! . Answer . It is located on your dash board above the radio remove it ,cabin air filter is there i hope that helps. (MORE)
Answer . \nYou will need to remove the radiator shroud to get access then release the belt tensioner and remove the belt(s) that restrict access to the fan clutch. Finally, remove the bolts that hold the fan clutch in place. Reverse the process. Done. I hope this helps you. Mark
Open the hood. As you face the car, the airbox will be on your left side. You need to remove a small cover over it by gently pulling up on it. Then remove the air inlet tube on the front by gently pulling it off. Remove the heat shield. It is held on by two Phillips screws, and it is very tight so h…ave a very very short screwdriver with a very sharp and good condition tip on hand. You will probably scrape your knuckles, this part is the reason i usually have it done by somebody else when it is in for other service. Under the heat shield there are two clips holding the top of the air box down. Use a flat screwdriver to pry they open. Unhook the vacuumm hoses from the top of the airbox so you can move it around, I usually have to disconnect the 90 degree hose in the corner but mine is a 2003 and there may be a minor variation in the hoses. Pull the cover up a few inches, grab the air filter and pull it out. This is a good time to vacuum out and wipe down the inside of the airbox. Also a very good time to remove, clean, and dry the pre-filter (some people call it the slush screen). It is fastened to the inside of the airbox with a single Phillips head screw; you can probably leave it out if you are so inclined, mine has been out since 2003 without any problems and lots of winter driving in MI and CO. Carefully push the new air filter through the gap between the box and the cover, and push the foam seal down all the way around. Place the cover on top of the foam seal, make sure it is lined up all the way around, and snap the two retainers back into place. It is helpful to use a flat screw-driver to push the retainers into place as you use your bodyweight to push the cover down because it is a pretty tight seal. Replace the hoses, heatshield, inlet hose, and cover. Put your tools away and you are done. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere is an article here on how to change an air filter ;\n. \nhttp://www.carbasics.co.uk/how_to_change_air_filter.htm.
Answer . Pull the rubber gasket that seals the back of the hood away from the fire wall. Now you can pull the plastic cover towards the front of the car and remove it. You should now be able to see the entire battery. There is one bolt in the front left corner that holds the battery in. Remove it… and the clamp and the cables (negative first according to the manual) and the battery should come out. It may take a third hand to help hold cables and hoses out of the way when you go to put the new battery in. Also I had a terrible time finding a battery, and ended up at the dealer. The price wasn't too far off a Napa battery, so if you want to save yourself some time you may want to go to the dealer first..

Answer . You don't. Unless it is a reuseable cotton filter. Otherwise, buy a new paper element filter and replace. On the 2.0TFSI the air filter is in the plastic engine cover. You have to disconnect the cover from the hoses and remove an electrical connector. Pry off on left side first. Turn it …over and unscrew four screws. The air filter is under the panel the screws held on. (MORE)
go to your local auto shop and tell them you need a headlight screwdriver and you'll get one then when you open your hood there are the screws on top take it out and take out the old one but be very careful and put in the newones and screw em back in also just one more thing its a pretty easy job. I… changed mine and it took no less than 20 mins and I'm only 16 and I'm not an underground mechanic. (MORE)
Answer . \nYou just turn thr knob to the right of it either way and hold. Left for hours right for minutes.
open the driver door and on the end of the dash is a black cover pop it off and all the fuses are behind it.
Open the engine hood. The cabin filter is located underneath the weather stripping on the passenger side. Unscrew four screws and pull out the filter frame.
The shocks on your VW are held in place with a retaining bolt oneach end of the shock. Remove the retaining bolts to remove theshock. Reverse the process to install the new shocks.
It's in the engine compartment on the passenger side toward the windshield under a black plastic cover. It requires no tools to replace and only takes a few minutes. Pull the weatherstripping foward, exposing where the cover meets the body and lift the passenger side of the cover enough to get your …arm inside. You'll see the filter - originally white, probably faded to grey or black now - held in by a little plastic clip. Pull off the clip, remove & replace the filter - "flow" arrow points down - and replace the clip. Make sure the plastic cover lines up properly when you put it back down - it should sort of "settle" into place. The weatherstripping is the same way - if you press it firmly all the way along, including the side where it meets the fender, it shouldn't have any slack. The part number for the filter is 1H0 819 644B, it lists for $17.18 at the dealer. The same filter also fits many Golfs, Jettas, and TTs of the same vintage so parts stores should have it in stock. -jonah (MORE)
Work it, work it . I believe if you look in the engine compartment up under the dash/windshield area you will spot a box looking thing and that's the cabin air flilter, if my memory serves me right. Good luck. If you are a clever girl or in need of help guy, you could go into the VW parts depar…tment and ask the guy behind the counter where it's located. Don't go into service and ask 'cause they work on commission and they want to charge you $120/hour to check and them etc. If you get my drift. I always have my way with the parts department 'cause they want to be hero's for the girls and big brother for the guys. Very cool. (MORE)

By "rear pad", I assume you mean the rear brake pads. This operation is slightly tricky. The rear brake caliper pistons actually "screw out" as the brake pads wear and become thinner. Being thinner means the pistons must extend farther out from the caliper. To replace the brake pads, the pistons mus…t be "reset" to allow space for the new, thicker-than-the-old, worn-out pads to fit in the caliper. The pistons must be turned opposite the direction they turn as the pads wear to reset/recess them back into the caliper. Care must be taken to prevent turning the pistons the wrong way ( out ), and not in. When working on brakes, cleanliness is next to Godliness. Keep it clean!!! If the pistons extend too far by turning, they cannot be reset and the entire caliper must be replaced. To facilitate the turning of the pistons, the calipers are generally removed from the carrier they mount on by removing 2 bolts. There is a special tool to turn the pistons back into the caliper and it works well, but the average VW owner/self fixer-upper won't have this tool. With this tool there is little need to unmount the calipers from the wheel carrier. All I can say is be very, very careful and DO NOT turn the piston the WRONG WAY (OUT ). Exercise extreme caution and make certain the piston is moving back into the caliper. If not, STOP! Turn the piston back the other way, slowly, and carefully. Once the pistons are reset the new pads can be inserted into caliper. It is a good practice to use a anti-squeal paste/grease on the "BACKING PLATE" edges of the brake pads. NOT ON THE BRAKE PADS FRICTION MATERIAL SURFACE. Also, there may be a slight amount ogf paste applied between the two shims on the back of the brake pad. NOT TOO MUCH TO CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE RUBBER DUST BOOT OF THE BRAKE CALIPER PISTON. Oil and rubber do not like one another. The rubber will swell and the sealing action of the dust boot will be lost forever. Other than steering, brakes are the most important system on the car. If your life is worth much, maybe a proven expert should be the only one to work on the brake system. Link to DIY video available in "Sources and related links" section below... (MORE)
