Genuine Fuel Filters trap the smallest of particles. The thorough filtering process ensures clean fuel and smooth engine operation.

  • Specifically Designed for your car Genuine Fuel Filters are designed specifically for each  model, to fit fuel lines precisely and therefore trap the tiniest of impurities.
  • High Quality Materials Unlike some non-genuine fuel filters, Genuine Fuel Filters are constructed of high quality materials, which are both airtight and highly heat resistant - an important feature with petrol in the hot environment of an engine bay.
  • Superior Filter Construction Genuine Fuel Filters are engineered to catch particles as small as ten microns, yet still maintain a smooth flow of fuel. Lesser quality filters use poorly constructed filter papers, which allow larger impurities to clog and corrode the engine, causing engine malfunction.

How to avoid the danger of a fuel leak

Only Genuine Fuel Filters are designed specifically for each individual model. They are constructed of high quality materials, which are both airtight and highly heat resistant. And most importantly, they are designed to fit fuel lines precisely. Other non-genuine filters may need to be 'forced' onto fuel lines, which can cause fuel leakages and increase the chances of creating a fire hazard.

When to replace your fuel filter

The quality of an air filter can be best measured by its ability to trap even the tiniest impurities. You can check the condition of your air filter by removing the casing and looking at the filter element. Consider replacing your air filter, if it is:

  • Very dirty
  • Clogged
  • Damaged in any way

Genuine Air Filters

Our air filters are made to the highest levels of quality with triple layer filtering and needle punched elements.

Triple layer filtering

Genuine Air Filters feature a triple-layer filtering element, which ensures that your engine stays free of any dust or contaminants. The element has a series of different gauge meshes - coarse, medium and fine to trap every size particle. Other types of filters may only have one layer.

Needle punched filter

The Genuine Filter Element is needle-punched to allow for a smooth, efficient flow of filtered air to the combustion chamber for clean ignition of fuel. Its dust catching ability is up to 30% higher than a normal after-market type filter. Lesser quality air filters often use poorly constructed seals and filter elements which allow dust and impurities into the engine, causing problems such as poor engine idle, extra fuel consumption and unnecessary engine wear.

When to replace your air filter

A Genuine Air Filter is designed to perform efficiently for the total time between recommended services. If you have your Service Centre service your car, then the air filter will always be cleaned and/or replaced according to the servicing schedule.

Cabin Air Filters

Genuine Cabin Air Filters

As you drive, millions of microscopic particles enter your car's interior via the ventilation/air conditioning system. To prevent this, the vast majority of current models [B18]  feature Cabin Air Filters which sit over the ventilation system and capture airborne particles before they enter the car's cabin. Diesel smoke, pollens, fungi, cement dust, ashes, dirt and mould can all be prevented from entering the cabin and affecting your comfort and wellbeing.

Because the Cabin Air Filter is located in front of the air conditioning unit, it captures the particles that impact on the efficiency of the air conditioning system. The Cabin Air Filter reduces the need for cleaning of the air conditioner, which means a substantial saving in long-term maintenance costs.

Checking Your Cabin Air Filter

Genuine Cabin Air Filters

Genuine Cabin Air Filters do a brilliant job of trapping all sorts of airborne particles. Environmental conditions such as driving in heavy traffic, in urban or dusty environments, or on dirt roads may lead to the Filter becoming clogged relatively quickly. A Cabin Air Filter may need changing in as little as 15,000 kilometers.

Ask your Service Advisor if your model is fitted with a Cabin Air Filter. If it is, then it's a simple operation for a Trained Technician to check the filter's condition - because it is located just behind the glove-box. When you have your serviced, make sure you request to have your Cabin Air Filter checked...and breathe easy.
