  • [Corsa C] Air filter (what & where)

    Hi all, my air filter will certainly be long over due.

    Been told the K&M air filters are what I should get.

    Was looking on eBay and couldn't find one, I suspect it's because I need to know what code my filter is or something?

    What filter do I need for a 1.0 petrol corsa c. Or where should I be looking to find out what I got?

    Best place to buy the filter online.


    Think ill manage fitting it, I see where it is.

    Thanks.

        That above is your best option, better than a cone

          I'm guessing panel so it fits in the pre existing box. Mate said I need a K&N 33-2212 but no idea how correct that is yet not checked.
          Edit. Same as what king quoted number wise. That's probably the winner. Thanks. Will check it out when I'm home and order.

          Oh I got another question, these are a bit pricey. Are they just good filters or are they performance enhancing? I'm just after a decent filter for now.

            I'd just replace with standard for your engine.

            K&N panel filters when oiled can damage the MAF and when un oiled don't protect as much as the paper filters.

                  If it was me i'd recommend a genuine vauxhall standard air filter in a standard air box.

                    Everything has it's pro's and con's. I've got a K&N Panel filter, had them in all my cars and never had a problem.

                      I've been doing a lot of reading on them recently.
                      They need to be oiled to trap the same amount of dirt as a regular paper filter. The problem with this is on cars with a MAF, due to the suction from the engine the oil can be sucked off the filter and eventually cause problems with the MAF.
                      If they're put in dry they don't stop as much dirt as a regular paper filter. On turbocharger cars it can damage the turbo blades like a sandblaster effect and on non turbo cars you're just going to get a bit more dust particles entering the engine.

                        I'd just get a new standard filter (3) and drill the air box

                        K&N or any other aftermarket will do nothing on a 1.0 except increase induction noise

                          Yeah, sorry guys I was torn between avoiding cheap ****, and my mate saying "ah just get a K&N" when I said I wanted a decent air filter. When I meant decent, I meant just not cheap crap that will cause more problems or give false economy and need changing 10x as often.

                          I will get a standard Vaux one and just replace it, oil was done 2.5K miles and want to do that also soon. Was looking at the 20 service kits for plugs, all filters - Are they worth getting or iffy because they are really cheap parts?


                          That's another question though, I'll be buying just a genuine filter today and the tools to do it. Thanks for all the input!

                              Nothings easy lol.

                              I cant get at my own filter because the screws have rusted, and they just power away - so unable to get any purchase and don't wish to force it until I can figure out a way around it.

                              gonna spray with WD40 and leave for a bit, anyone know off-hand what screws these are so I can replace?
