I have replaced my air cabin filter. For some reason, I think the one I have been ordering is too big or for another car. It was scrunched when I pulled it out and the new one does the same thing. Do the 2018+ have a longer filter? Am I crazy? Bad air filter insertion technique, perhaps? Let me know. I have been searching the forums/Google and can’t find anything that sticks for this one. Thanks in advance... Feel free to tear me apart on this one 🤣
Im not here to comment on other dudes' insertion techniques

Are you installing it sideways?

Speaking of lube my drivers window all of a sudden seems to bind up when halfway down, goes up and halfway down just fine but won’t go down all the way, should I lube up the track?what do I lube it with? I don’t want to have to take off the door panel if I don’t have to lol

You can lube it but it sounds more like a problem with the regulator.

Would a R is38 require a downpipe on a gti? Or would the stock one fit fine. I ask because of carb and their standards :/

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you're trying to fit an IS38 from a Golf R onto your GTI downpipe, it will fit, but it is way too restrictive, and will cause problems.

Should I use a golf r downpipe?

I’m trying to find a solution where I can still meet emissions and run an is38.
