    Oil and Air filter for Rapid Diesel spaceback ?

    Hi Folks,
    I bought my 2016 model diesel Rapid spaceback a few weeks ago and still finding things that are new to me.I like to keep some service items in the garage so that when I come to do any jobs they are to hand.I have just been into the "Euro Car Parts" site to look for brake pads,w/wipers, and oil etc. but when I went to look for oil and air filters, it came up with "no informaton".
    Can anyone enlighten me if the 1.4 tdi engine has some system whereby it doesn't need these filters.I used to have a Simca 1500 many years ago and this had a sytem that you could clean out and put back,maybe the 1.4i engine is the same,but as regards the air filter? perhaps they are like the old VW where it was an oil bath type that could also be cleaned out.
    I would be interested in any information received.
    Many thanks

    If you use Eurocarparts, you should also look at carparts4less it is the same people and products, but lower prices.

    Just tried carparts4less and you are quite right,eg. an oil filter is about £4 cheaper.
    Cheers.

    They are both the same firm which is completely bonkers. If you need a new battery and go for Bosch compare with a Varta battery. Bosch don't make batteries they rebadge Varta. An 096 Bosch with a five year warranty for a Yeti is £156 from ECP a Varta (same product number so exactly the same item) is £88 on Amazon.
