VW Tiguan Cabin air filter triple-layer carbon cabin filter, Australian Made. Part number CAFA226TIG
How Our Filters Work

The air moves through 1000s of tiny pores constantly swirling and changing direction, depositing microscopic particles along the way, Though over 20 mm thickness of 3 progressively finer activated carbon filtering layers. Particles stick to the carbons rough surface, and the carbons microscopic pores absorb noxious odours, gases, and chemicals. Opposed to a standard filter where the air only passes through 2 mm thin material in an old-style “W shaped pleated” Volkswagen Tiguan air conditioner filter.

1st Layers

Our Cabin Air Filter has a 1st 15 mm thick layer of activated carbon filter sponge. This Layer traps allergy-causing particles such as pollen, dust, mites, fungus spores, pet hair, organic and inorganic material and is the first Layer of noxious odour and pollution absorption. 

2nd and 3rd Layer

Second and third layers of progressively finer carbon filter material over 4 mm thick. Traps and absorbs dangerous microscopic particles such as Bacteria, Airborne heavy metals, harmful gases, diesel exhaust particulates, chemicals, and ozone as much as possible. Supported by our low allergy custom-made acrylic base designed for your VW Tiguan airconditioner. We are providing the best possible protection from pollution entering your VW Tiguan HVAC system.

Why Our Filters Are Better
  • Standard cabin air filters the contaminated air only passes through 2 mm thin material in an old-style “W shaped pleated” VW Tiguan cabin air pollen filter.
  • In our VW Tiguan Cabin air filter, the contaminated air travels through the entire 20 mm of 3 carbon layers giving vastly improved chemical absorption and filtration.
  • The filter is also designed to provide a better seal around the filter’s edges and filter housing to reduce contaminates bypassing the cabin air filter.
Replace Yearly

Your new premium VW Tiguan Cabin Air pollen filter is designed to be replaced yearly, as the micropores of the activated Carbon absorb the dangerous contaminates and become less effective over time. Additionally, replacing the cabin air filter keeps your Air-conditioner operating at peak performance.
