UNI FILTER LANDCRUISER 200 SERIES
200 series air filter replacement 2007-2021 There’s a range of modern 4x4’s on the market suffering from dust ingestion issues, mainly those with a panel type air filterS. The main reason for the dust issues on all these vehicles is the sealing edge of the filters. Rubber seals on plastic are not the best option when used in dusty conditions. Plastic air boxes warp out of shape when they heat up. Unifilter panel filters use two layers of foam. The outer layer is the work stage and the inner layer is a back up stage. Effectively it’s two filters in one. Foam is also the best filtering material for dusty conditions. When the correct oil is used on foam filters they will continue to breath and filter, even when dirty. Oiling and Cleaning foam air filters correctly is very important. Only use foam air filter oil when oiling foam air filters. Oil designed for Cotton air filters is NOT suitable. Only use oil that comes in a plastic bottle and is thick in consistency straight out of the bottle. Never use spray oils or oils that go on like water and then become tacky. These oils will shorten the like of the foam. When cleaning only use Mineral turpentine or Unifilter’s Citrus Cleaner. Petrol, Kero & Metho etc will shorten the life of the foam. Using a sealing grease around the filter sealing edge is also a good idea. We recommend using regular bearing grease. Some rubber sealing greases have chemicals in them that can affect the sealing foam.
Unifilter also manufactures a large range of snorkel pre-filters. These are a great addition when going off road and especially if travelling in convoy. Pre-cleaner are designed for use when its dusty. They can be used in normal driving conditions with out affecting performance but to get a longer life out of them we only recommended using them when the conditions require there use.
