CRD K&N Panel Filters

Hi guys,

just want to let anyone who is considering this filter to consider going for the 33-2420 version over the 33-2233 one

basically K&n say that the former is for the 08-on CRDs and the latter for the 2005-2007.

i ordered the 2233 not realising this and while it fit fine, i returned it for the 2420 because technically it was the wrong one for the car. even though it seems the oem filter is the same part nos for all years

when it arrived i noticed that the 2420 is pretty much double the depth (the actual filter bit, not the rubber) and weight of the 33-2233 and feels much more sturdy.

dimensions:

2233:
Height: 1.125 in (29 mm)
Outside Length: 11.438 in (291 mm)
Outside Width: 8.5 in (216 mm)

Filter Material: Cotton Gauze
Filter Re-Oiling Amount: 1.54 oz (45 ml)
Weight: 1.1 lb (0.5 kg)


2420:
Height: 1.625 in (41 mm)
Outside Length: 11.5 in (292 mm)
Outside Width: 8.5 in (216 mm)

Filter Material: Cotton Gauze
Filter Re-Oiling Amount: 2.92 oz (86 ml)
Weight: 2 lb (0.9 kg)

so basically the 2420 looks like it could filter a lot more than the older version. and i dont see why it wouldnt fit either.

hope this helps someone.

please no anti k&n comments, if you dont like them then fine but this isnt what this thread is about, cheers

Curious. Do you think the taller 2420 would fit in the 07 airbox?

I'm curious about this as well. I might use filters for 08 and up if they fit.

yes i think they would. the two filters seemed to fit the same in my 09. no promises of course

its a much beefier filter, but i think the rubber surround was of a similar thickness.
