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 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

Filter replacement is pretty easy, actually, really easy. Right here behind the battery on the driver's side of the engine compartment there are just two clips. Pull them up and then this little item comes up and the air cleaner pulls out of it.

The air cleaner goes right down in. Make sure it's seated correctly. You don't want to push it through or anything. It just seats down in. Put it right down in, and push it against right there and put the clips back in.
