In my 2005 Jetta. A search says that number is linked to Helsa Automotive which was bought by Mann. And does the date mean it was made in 2007? Cant be from 2016 as I got the car in 2012. The car has been sitting since then and the filter is like new, I blew it out with air and there was no dust or dirt in it. Any reason it can't be reused?

Yes, that cabin air filter was made in 2007 so it is not the original in the car. It was likely changed by the dealership during the 2 years free maintenance program.

As you stated, it is a Hesla branded product.
