F01/F02 Airfilter DIY

Mod Please place in DIY section.

1) Remove Engine cover. Simply pull up on it.
2) Loosen 8 T-25 screws around top of air filter housing.
3) Loosen clamp on hose going to air filter housing with a screw driver.
4) Lift off top of air filter housing. The top contains the air filter which is glued to a piece of hard black plastic pushed into the top housing. There is a spot at the corner to insert a flat screwdriver and pry it out.
5) After prying it out you will see a smaller charcoal filter which I don't think gets replaced as I could find no part number or mention of on realoem.
6) Put new filter in and reverse steps.
7) Filter part numbers are 13717577457 (Cylinders 1-4 Passenger Side) and 1377577458 (Cylinders 5-8 Drivers Side).

Cheapest place to purchase is the bmwpartsstore.com for $20.83 each.

Hope this helps. It's pretty easy once figuring it out.

Charcoal filter should just be trashed. Only North American BMWs are equipped with them. Supposed to prevent some emissions during idle. Thanks for the pics.

If you have the new BMW software called Rheingold which can be used for Diagnostic in F01/F02, you could reset hidden Service Menu items.

Found these OEM replacements for $23.91 Each from www.rmeuropean.com. Free shipping if you spend $65. I bought the micro filters for 29.68 to get free shipping (part number 64119163329)

Part numbers are: 13717577457 (cylinders 1-4) Passenger side
13717577458 (cylinders 5-8) Driver's side

Wow.... All of that just to change these sh1ts out.

Guess I'll be ordering these tomorrow. Because I may as well have new ones on hand in case mine are dirty.

Thanks for the helpful info man!

I too have read somewhere how these actually choke off additional power. So away they go when I do this swap.

Yep I took the charcoal filters out. The tab holding them on actually broke off but it was flush so I'm not worried about it.

The engine air filter and the cabin air filter does not come up in the condition based service menu on the F01/F02....at least not on the 2009. Anybody have this option on a newer model?

Spark plugs, micro filter and air filter doesn't come up in the F02. I too have a 2009 model but I also checked with the other model it's the same

My 2009 just went in for rear brakes and the SA told me that it is calling for plugs with my next oil change interval. My microfilter was replaced per CBS data during my last visit. So the info is being stored somewhere since he read it off the key.

Thanks for this awesome post!

Does removing the charcoal filter reduce, increase or have no effect on fuel efficiency?

Adds power I suppose? Anyone notice any difference?

Thanks again!

You should feel like gaining 20+HP, less hesitation, and an increase of at least 1-4 MPG (depends on how you drive).

Cons? Perhaps air pollution...in this day and age, immorality!

No kidding! Removing that charcoal filter was always the first thing I did for every 750 that I owned. Only US cars have this filter. That's a concrete evidence that there should be no downside to the engine, only upside. More air, more power. This is the same principal for these combustion engines since the 60s.

Does this impact annual inspection?

BMW dealer just quoted me $250 for this 3 days ago - how can they possibly get away with that price?

Thanks for the post - I'll gladly do it myself to save the money.

I just did it last night thanks to this DIY...really easy but be careful of some of the wiring harness clips close to the filter housing...they are brittle! Does feel like it's changed the sound and performance slightly.

I just did mine yesterday as well. When I removed them both sides of the housing were filled with sand and leaf particles. I vacuumed them out.

Also one of the rubber grommets that holds the housing in place was off apparently the dealer never put it back on during last service...so that's fixed as well.
