Take this cover up, just grab underneath, lift up, slide it forward. I'm going to take a straight blade screwdriver and just loosen up these worm clamps. One right here. And then one right here on the throttle body. I'm going to take a 10 millimeter socket and a ratchet, take these two bolts out. Remove this hose right here. This is going to be loose, disconnect it right here, slide it out. There and the there's a connector right here. We want to disconnect that connector. Slide this off. I'm going to pull this top of the air box off, just pull this hose off first. Right there. Then there's some clips, unclip it. They're there and right there. Pull this off. Pull the air filter off. Set it aside. Just grab the air box, the lower part and lift up. Should pull out. Some tabs that hold it on, on the bottom. Make sure those little grommets stayed in there.

I'm going to disconnect this hose right here, just grab it and twist. Take this trim tool, there's a little clip right here. Little push retainer. Push down, slide that retainer out. Now we can grab the reservoir, just slide it up and pull it up. Disconnect this connector right here, just push down on the tab, slide it off. Take a trim tool, we're going to pull these retainers out. Just like that. Now with those retainers out, slide this off, slide that out of the way. I'm going to use an eight millimeter socket and a ratchet and I'm going to take this bolt out here and the same on the other side over there. Now I can grab this fan assembly, just slide it up, pull it out.

Take the fan, slide this in position. There's some feet down below it slides into. Make sure it's in those feet on both sides. Once that's in, we can put the bolts back in. We'll take these bolts, get these started. Got an eight millimeter socket and a ratchet. Before I tighten that one down, get the other one started. Alright then I'm going to snug these down. Now we're going to connect this connector right here, lock it in place. This cover is going to go over here, it's going to slide underneath there, slide underneath there. Line these push pins up, lock them in place. Take the coolant reservoir. There's a little tab that it's going to slide into. So in the back side right here, it's going to slide on the hole where the fan shroud is. Line that up like that. Then take this hose and we'll put that on the top of the radiator.

We're just going to push this push retainer back in. Line that up, lock it in place. Alright I'll take this air box, want to make sure those tabs line up with those grommets. Then we'll just push it down, lock it in place, take the air filter, put that on and take the upper air box. We're going to install this hose. Get that lined up, then we can lock it in place. Alright now we want to put this snorkel on, connect this intake temperature sensor, lock it in place, slide it in position. Have the two bolts right here, just get those to line up. As long as these are on properly then I'll tighten these two down. Just use a 10 millimeter socket and a ratchet and then we'll slide this hose in position. This goes over to the coolant reservoir. I'm going to tighten up these two worm clamps. Just use a straight blade screwdriver, tighten them up. It's good. That one's good. Take this engine cover, just slide it in position and push it down.
