Please see Air Filters Change exact instruction below: 

 1. Obtain the correct replacement filter


It should be the same as the one you will replace. Consult our parts store if you need assistance finding the right part. (A replacement part)


 


 2. Turn off the ignition, put it in park, and set the brake

 3. Locate the air filter unit


The air filter unit is usually situated on top of the engine. On older cars with carburetors the filter is usually under a bulky, round cover made of plastic or metal. (An example of the air filter on a carburetor engine)




Newer, fuel-injected cars tend to have a square or rectangular air filter housing can be found slightly off centre between the front grill and the engine. (A square or rectangular cover)

 

                                                                                                                 

 4. Remove the air filter cover

Loosen the hose clamp that seals the air conduct. Undo all the screws holding the air filter cover. Some models have wing nuts; other air filters are just clamped on with a quick release system. Pull the cover out of the air conduit and lift it up so it comes off the lower part of the housing. (Remove the cover)

 


5. Take out the air filter

 

Now you can see a round or rectangular filter made of cotton, paper or gauze. Filters have a rubber rim that seals off the unit's interior. Simply lift the filter out of the housing. (See the dust you don't want in your engine or obstructing your air filter?)



 6. Clean the air filter housing

  

Connect the air hose to the compressor and use the compressed air to blow out the dust, or use a vacuum cleaner to suck up any dirt. (Using compressed air to remove the dust)



 


Seal the air conduit with removable adhesive tape. It only takes a minute and that way you won't get any dirt into the engine whilst cleaning. (Use tape to cover the opening to the engine so debris doesn't get in)

 


7. Replace the filter


Replace the old filter with a new one. Simply insert it into the housing with the rubber rim facing up. Make sure the edges are sealed by the rubber rim. (Most simply press into place)


 

 8.  Replace the cover

Carefully insert the cover back into the air conduit and then press the entire piece down onto the lower half of the air filter unit. (Replace the cover)




Make sure it's on straight and securely; otherwise you could alter engine performance. Tighten all the screws or clamps and recheck that you have put everything firmly back together by rocking the unit gently with both hands. Shut the bonnet securely. (Check that it's tight and secure)

  

 

 9.  Check the filter regularly to keep your car breathing at maximum efficiency by keeping the dust out;

10.  Change the filter every 16,000 km (10,000 miles). If you drive in a dusty area, it will need replacement more often.
