Additional securing aids for air filter element LX 1566
Issue no. 02/2018: Additional securing aids for air filter element LX 1566
MAHLE air filter element LX 1566 for Volkswagen Group
vehicles is equipped with additional securing aids (locking pins) to ensure a higher contact pressure. Because comparableair filter elements do not have these securing
aids, a direct comparison can beproblematic.
When installing the LX 1566, it is important to carry out the following steps:
1. The left-hand side of the air filter element must first
be inserted into the housing, see Figure 2.
2. While the left-hand side is secured manually, the right-hand side should be
clicked into the appropriate mechanism,
see Figure 3.
IMPORTANT: The difference between the appearance and design of this and comparable air filter elements is not a defect. Quite the opposite: it ensures optimal positioning of the element in the filter housing.
