Description

Fits 1999-Current Volkswagen Jetta/Golf A4

This is a complete kit consisting of the filter head, mounting bracket, banjo fittings, clamps, nuts, washers, bolts, o-ring, and filter wrench. The installation is straight-forward and can be accomplished by the average person with basic mechanic skills. The bracket is CNC cut from one piece steel and the filter head is machined from billet aluminum and anodized in a black, red, or blue finish.  The kit is designed to use the 1-micron filter but will also work with the CAT 1R-0750 2-micron element if a more reasonably priced filter is desired.  If a filter with a water drain is desired we also offer the Donaldson P553203. You can select your choice of filter at the bottom or select “none” if you want to provide your own filter.

For an additional charge the kit is available with 3 of the standard 8mm barb fittings to give you an extra port for a pressure gauge.  It is also available with anodized -6AN fittings instead of the standard 8mm barb fittings for those customers running larger fuel lines.

Here is an Excellent Article From Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine (Part 1) and The Conclusion (Part 2) detailing the importance of high-quality fuel filtration in diesel engines.  It is worth reading!

The Heart of the Uber Fuel Filter Kit – The One-Micron 100% Synthetic Microglass Filter Element

 

 

All fuel filters currently available are cellulose medium.  Even the highest quality cellulose filters provide only marginal filtration when compared with a full microglass element.  Additionally, cellulose filter elements are adversely affected by sub-freezing ambient temperatures.  This is not the case with a full microglass element.  It is not affected in any way by cold temperatures.  Couple that with the fact that the best cellulose-blend filters are 2-micron and this 1-micron filter is a huge step in the evolution of filtering diesel fuel.

 

 

Enter the 1 Micron Nicktane Extreme-Duty 100% microglass element!

 

 

The filter element was developed using technology developed for the aerospace industry.  One of the problems associated with a pure microglass element is that the glass medium can be delicate.  When microglass is exposed to varying flow rates, the microglass can rupture at the points where the microglass is required to make sharp bends within the stainless steel support structure. When you have flown on an airliner and heard the landing gear “clunk up” in place, the hydraulic system was just exposed to a tremendous stress.  This sort of stress would destroy the normal microglass filter element. Not the Nicktane Extreme-Duty.  It can take this sort of stress in stride, again and again.

 

 

The Nicktane Extreme-Duty filter is manufactured using a proprietary technique which essentially “bends glass”, without creating a weak area in the filter medium.  This gives the Nicktane Extreme-Duty filter a combination of robustness, and filtration efficiency unequalled in the aerospace and automotive industry.  Additionally, the filter utilizes a proprietary microglass layering technique which enables the filter to provide significantly better filtering efficiency and dirt holding capacity than any filter currently available in the market.

 

 

Thus we have a filter technology that will provide diesel fuel filtration and flow world’s better than any currently available cellulose or cellulose/blend fuel filter.

    “Ground” shipping that came as quickly as amazon prime. Obviously sending items out as quickly as possible.

    It’s a great kit, the machined adapter is great. The only thing I wished was changed was a actual bracket that holds the filter in place instead of the basic clamps which were hard to get tightened. I’m really glad I purchased this kit with the 1micron filter.

  3. Travis (verified owner)

    Everything went together really well, shipping was very fast. Wish the pics on the website could be enlarged for installation ease. And threading the filter holder would make assembly a breeze. I dropped one of the provided nuts and spent 1/2 and hour looking for the darn thing.

    The online-YouTube segment- is directed toward Duramax. As I have a 2004 VW Golf TDi , I was able to make the necessary modifications for fitment to my vehicle. Others with lesser knowledge, would really struggle to properly mount and complete the kit-without leaks!
    So…. please come up with a 1(One) page instructional sheet specific to the vehicles listed. This will save many negative reviews-for an otherwise innovative improvement to the OEM Fuel Filter set-up .

    The nicktane fuel filter appears very well made, however I have noticed a small leak coming from the hose connections on the top of the fuel filter cap. I tried tightening it more and the leak persisted. Any assistance would be appreciated

    I have installed a few kits with the 1micron filter and a few with the cat 1r-0750 filters. The 1 micron is the way to go! Last better and filter better! I think it’s the best filter on the market!

    Excellent!

    Installed this on a 2002 jetta tdi. Installation was fairly straight forward however directions would have been nice. I’m sure I made the install a little more difficult by assembling things out of order. Overall the kit is good quality, straightforward assembly (even without instructions), and looks good. Below are a few notes for MK4 owners that could be helpful:

    1) Put the band clamps on the bracket PRIOR to installing the bracket and bolting it down.

    2) Loosen the plastic screw that is used to secure the windshield washer fluid bottle. Just the little amount of room that gives you is really helpful.

    3) Make sure to place the band clamps so you can tighten them all the way down but still get the washer fluid to remount. Upper band clamp screw should be almost up against the power steering resivoir and the lower band clamp screw should be in a small corner between the new filter, washer fluid bottle, and the fender. This was the best location I could find.

    4) Re-secure the winshield washer fluid bottle LAST after tightening the kit down, starting the car, and checking for leaks. That plastic screw is difficult to get off and on witht he kit installed. Use pliers to tighten and loosen with the kit installed.

    Install took me about 1.5 to 2 hours. I was taking my time and trying to get things right. Have NO leaks and used the Donaldson filter which came with a much larger/thicker o-ring then the one that came on the filter base. Didnt know which to use so I used the one that came with the Donaldson filter. No issues. Also shipping was REALLY fast. Kit shipped from California and arrived at my house in North Carolina in 2 days.

    Great kit and I was able to swap it from my TDI to my 35d , using it as a filter after the stock one. What’s the lifetime of these filters in gallons?
