OK, troops.
New to the MK111....... thought that I would investigate under the bonnet (hood) and couldnae find the air filter.
Where is it hiding?

also, decided to take off the grill to have a lookie at the rads. and found this little thingy hiding behind the name badge.
At first I thought it was a posh light, but NO.
What does this serve please?
Looks like a wee ariel of some sorts

Hi Bill,
Your 'MK onehundredeleven' had me chuckling. :p

As you have a bimmer based model, may I suggest you download the RAVE? Nearly all questions answered inside.

Cheers,
Steve

Again thanks for that.
I dont have that set up on mine.
TD6?

This is frustrating.
The air filter is normally visibuble and accessabuble.
Doing my heed in.
Heres a foto of my air intake.
It comes straight from the inner wing and into the engine.
The only places that I can think of is within the inner wing or under the plastic covering.

Someone please help me.
pullin me hair oot :geek:

Don't spend money on an Ebay copy of the RAVE. Supporting scammers is just ugly...

You have an .ISO CD image which you can either burn to cd yourself (nearly all sw to burn cd's supports this) or use SW to install the cd as a virtual drive on your HDD.
Read up: http://techie-buzz.com/tips-and-tricks/ ... -file.html

The reason you don't have the small trash can for an air filter is because you have a TD6. The air filter is under the long black cover around and behind the oil cap in your pic. There are 5 torx screws to remove the cover (and it can be a bit of a beach to put back, do not force anything or you'll never get it to seal properly again). The air filter is nearly as long as the valve cover. Dsd's pic shows the cover coming up.

BTW, your oil cap is on upside-down. :lol:

I guess those Mk 111's are different from the Mk-III's.

The difference from your pic looks like it doesn't come with an air filter, but instead a bypass where the filter should be. :hand:
But if it were MY Mk-111, I'd hope it instead had an air filter located in the fender well, or I'd promptly be converting it to a Mk-III by installing the missing air filter housing... AND filter!

Thank you all for yer replies even if some where miss-read and missed.

Question............... The 5 allen/hex bolts on the housing, do they come reet oot or are they retained in.
I canny get any of them to come oot.
I can get them slack and spinning but not reet oot.

and still the cover wont budge.

I think I will be fittin an external one.
This is a neet mare for sure.

let ye know how I get oan laters

Thanx folks for aw yer input here.
As ye can see I found the little begger.


The fleecey sleeve was rather dirty so I have washed it and left it off to dry.



and for the benefit of Stevemfr I went oot and bought another oil filler car which as ye can see is the reet way round.
Thanx for thaty.

and me next question is........

What is the purpose of that fleecy thingy?
Protecting the filter element?
Never seen one before.

I know it seems obvious that it is ther to protect the element, but why and do the beemers have them?
Is it washable and reusabuble?
