Additional securing aids for air filter element LX 1566

Media Library - MahleTechHeader

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 comparable
air 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. Media Library - TM0218FIG2

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.
