Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

Your air filter is right here on the passenger's side of your engine compartment. You need a flat blade screwdriver and a T25 Torx driver.

With the flat blade screwdriver, loosen up this clamp right here, and pull off this tubing here. And then use the T25 Torx driver and loosen five bolts, one, two, three, four, and then a fifth one back here.

Now those are loosened up, just lift this right up and off. The air filter comes right up and out, and you would also want to use a vacuum cleaner clean out all the leaves or anything that's in here.

The filter goes back down. Put it down in like this, get it past this corner, and put it down in. There's two tabs over here; they go in the side. Pull this tube out of your way. Pull that on, and retighten your five bolts. Then, use your Phillips screwdriver, bring your clamp back up into place, and tighten it up.
