    Default Compatible air filters for 1983 Peugeot 505 SRDT

    Hey guys, my dad is looking for a replacement air filter for his '83 505 turbo diesel as the current one is falling to pieces. Apparently Ryco is the way to go for things like that but on the website they give no options for replacement air filters for his model (or any diesel 505 at that). Was just wondering if someone knew what air filters were compatible with his car and where we could get one?

    Cheers

    Edit: The old air filter has the dimensions of 280mm x 100mm and it's made of foam

    Plug your sizes into this:

    K&N Search by Dimension - Panel Air Filter

    Then see what cars/filters turn up. You can then cross reference.

    Most "flat" type air filters are concertina paper element these days.

    The other option is to find some filter foam and cut to size.

    Is it an oil soaked foam type?

    There was a technical article somewhere (might have been Torque) that argued oil soaked foam filters were the worst type even for the small engines they're usually found on, paper types are superior and oil baths best. The height of the filter is important otherwise the lid will not make a tight seal.

    In the past I have made up air filters from foam purchased from Clark Rubber. It was a type used for air conditioners.
