AutoInstruct presents a tutorial on how to remove the snow screen / grille / baffle / guard from the air intake of an MK7 Golf R. This piece of plastic is designed to disperse and catch any snow that gets drawn into the air filter. In warmer climates we feel that this grille is not required!
- Torx Screwdriver
Use a Torx screwdriver to unscrew the eight (8) screws around the air intake lid. Take note that you will not be able to completely remove the screws from the lid.
Pull up the bottom left corner and place your hand underneath the grille. Gently pull upwards and remove the grille. Be cautious as the plastic slats are very brittle.
