Nomenclature and process of replacement of filters Volkswagen Tiguan
Like other car owners, many owners of Volkswagen Tiguan do not mind saving on the service, performing part of the car maintenance operations themselves. This includes the replacement of the filter. Such a procedure as changing the filter, whether it is a cabin, air, fuel or oil, is not complicated, minimal skills and knowledge of the device of the car is enough to successfully perform the work.
Cabin filter replacement
It is not difficult to change the cabin filters in Tiguans, but it is sometimes quite inconvenient to pick up.
The part number in the catalog is 1K1 819653B, analogue of JUST DRIVE JDAC0014C.
- For ease of access, move the front passenger seat (seat) as far back as possible.
- Unscrew the 2 plastic screws under the front panel above the front passenger’s feet.
- Remove the fabric cover, under it is the filter housing.
- Slide the housing cover to the right and remove it.
- Remove the filter and replace it.
Some versions of Tiguan can access the cabin filter through the glove compartment and the replacement procedure is much easier.
Air Filter Replacement
Part number according to the catalog 04E129620. Depending on the version of the car, the air filters may differ in design.
In previous versions of the Tiguan, the design of the air filter is different and the amount of work is less.
Changing the oil filter
Depending on the engine type installed, oil filters differ in location. In gasoline engines, they can be accessed from above, and in this case the procedure is much easier. However, it is worth bearing in mind that few people manage to unscrew the filter by hand, and for this purpose it is better to get a special device.
The replacement itself is reduced to unscrewing the old filter and screwing in the new one. There are no fundamental difficulties, except for a couple of remarks:
- Before installing the new filter it is recommended to lubricate the sealing ring (to prevent sticking) with engine oil;
- when tightening the new filter be careful and do not apply too much force, otherwise the next filter replacement will be a problem.
In the case of the diesel engine, you have to get to the filter (part number 03N115562 ) from below. To do this you have to remove the engine guard:
- Unscrew 3 bolts (wrench 14) at the front and 2 at the back (in the direction of the car) of the engine crankcase protection.
- Unscrew the 7 screws fixing the protection on the sides.
- Remove the protection.
- Unscrew the drain plug and let the oil drain.
- Unscrew the filter itself (32 head is pretty handy for this operation).
Before installing the lower filters, some specialists recommend pouring oil (up to 300 grams) into the filter itself to reduce the time of the engine under low pressure in the lubrication system.
For the same reason, the engine should not be stressed until fresh oil is pumped through the system, as evidenced by the extinguishing of the emergency pressure indicator light.
Replacing the Fuel Filter
Fuel filters can be for both diesel and gasoline engines. In the case of the diesel, the fuel filter is located in a conveniently accessible location and is easy to change. The catalog number is 7N0127177B .
Unscrew fixing screws (5 pieces) of the upper cover of the fuel filter body (it is not necessary to remove the pipes to it).
With the fuel filter for gasoline engines (number 5N0919109) everything is much more complicated. According to the old WAG regulations it was supposed to be changed every 100 000 km, in the new regulations this recommendation disappeared. The reason is simple, with high quality fuel it will be in good condition even after 100 thousand kilometers, and with low-quality it will still have to be replaced earlier, as needed, in the case of incorrect work of the power system.
Another thing is the high cost of this filter, as it is made as one unit with a fuel level sensor, and the filter element is fixed and can not be purchased separately.
- Remove rear seats.
- Remove the floor mat. Under the mat, a raised floor with 2 plastic plugs to access the pump and gas tank filter.
- Remove plugs.
- Clean the work area of dust, dirt and debris to prevent this from getting into the gas tank.
- Disconnect the electrical connectors and remove the gas line hose.
Tiguan connections have a peculiar feature. When removing, you must first push the connector in, as if putting it on, then squeeze the latches and only then remove it.

A cheat sheet for service.
It is necessary to write it down for yourself in order to have it at hand for next service maintenance.
