Hi Marius, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We suggest you to use the below solution to resolve this issue. Here we use the allowfiltering option to be changed( i.e., true or false) , to fulfill our requirement. Please check the code snippet for your reference. A sample is also attached below, make a note on that. 
<div id="app"> 
    <ejs-button id="enable" cssClass="e-flat" @click.native="enable">Enable Filter</ejs-button> 
    <ejs-button id="disable" cssClass="e-flat" @click.native="disable">Disable Filter</ejs-button> 
import { ButtonPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons"; 
  methods: { 
    enable: function() { 
      this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.allowFiltering = true; 
    disable: function() { 
      this.$refs.grid.ej2Instances.allowFiltering = false; 

Please get back to us if you need further assistance 

Thavasianand S.
