What our customers say...

This filter exactly matches the one I pulled from my used TDI. The prefilter on the old unit did its job by pulling a large amount of particulate matter from the air intake before it reached the paper element. In reducing the amount of matter reaching the paper element, it's plausble the prefilter action ultimately reduced the amount of particulate matter getting past the paper filter.
