I have a 1999 and the air filter is all the way on the upper left hand side after you open the hood, remove the plastic and the big vacuum looking hose, you can see the housing for the air filter. It is a huge pain, clamps are really tight and you are better off just paying to get it done. It usually costs less than the air filter itself if you bought it yourself.

Where is the fuel filter located and how do you replace it on a 1999 VW Passat?

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. !AnswerThe fuel filter is located the right rear wheel in front of the rear axle. AnswerThe 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.

Can you change oil filter after changing oil to a 1970 Volkswagen bug?

As far as I remember from my old V Dub days is there wasn't an oil filter but a screen located at the drainplug. Therefore you would lose your oil by removing it. If it has an after market filter you should be able to change it with little spillage.
