2.0D Air filter lower housing

Hi, i've been reading this forum for quite a while now, but this is my first post <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I hope some of you guys might help me out with something...<p>I'm the pround new owner of a S40 2.0D euro3 motor with 33K on the odometer, the car is in mint condition, with full service history however...<p>I don't know why the previous owner took out the air filter lower housing / (damper?) I guess he tried on a cone airfilter but didn't put that particular part /no.4 on the drawing/ back when he reassembled it to stock configuration.<p><IMG SRC="http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/9678/vzduch.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>I've read that it's a resonator/damper, so basically it only affects the sound of the car, or am i mistaken? is it safe to drive around without it?<br>If i slip underneath the car and look up through the front left corner of the engine bay i can directly see the bottom side of the air filter through a big hole in the tray. <p>Is that damper a vital component? or can i do without it? do the T5's and 2.4i have a similar air filter box? or is this specific to the 2.0D?<br> <br>Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this issue... <br> <BR><BR>

Re: Air filter lower housing (Guru)

Most on the forums have never seen a diesel engine s40 so probably not sure exactly the function as i havent either. However most are generally used for sound dampening and also a cold air induction source. If removed it shouldnt cause any major dilemas just may increase the sound a bit.
