All right, begin by removing your oil cap, so that you can remove your cover from the top of your engine. Then reinstall your oil cap, so that nothing falls down in there.

Next, we'll pop off the connector to the mass airflow sensor. Pull up the little yellow lock and then push down on the tab and you can wiggle it loose.

Then we'll come over to this air filter box. There's a tab here on the back and a tab here on the side that you want to push away from the box itself. That will release the top from the box.

Next, up in the intake manifold you'll find a clamp that you'll have to remove with a flat-tip screwdriver. You don't have to actually remove it all the way. You just have to loosen it up so that it releases its grip on the intake manifold.

After that you'll have a rubber hose right here, which you'll slide right off. Then you should be able to wiggle the whole plastic intake right off the car.

Place your intake hose back on the intake manifold like that. Then over here you're going to see three tabs, which hook into the lower part of the intake box. Once they're hooked in you just push straight down and it locks into place.

Over here you have your rubber hose, which you'll want to push into place. Then there's the mass airflow sensor wire right here. Ours just fell down below, so you'll have to kind of dig for it, but it snaps right into place. Then you got to push your lock tab in.

Back in the intake we have the clamp that we had released earlier. We're going to tighten that up with a flat-tip screwdriver. The cover will go back on and you just have to pull the oil filler cap off to get the cover back on. The oil filler cap holds the cover right back into place.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
