Filter Replacements for BMW X3
The Cartisan Technician first removes the air filter located right on top of the engine block. The Technician replaces the air filter with a brand new one from Hengst.
The oil filter is located on the rear of the engine block, underneath the air filter housing. The Cartisan technician has to first remove the air filter housing in order to access the oil filter. Once that’s done, he unscrews the oil filter from its position and installs a new air filter from Hengst.
Next, the Cartisan Technician removes the fuel filter. The fuel filter is located under the chassis of the BMW X3. The Cartisan technician replaces this fuel filter with a brand new fuel filter from Hengst.
The last set of filters, which are the Cabin filters are located inside the engine bay on the passenger side of the cabin. The BMW X3 is equipped with 2 cabin air filters. The Cartisan Technician removes these cabin filters from their housing and replaces them with brand new cabin air filters from Hengst.
