I am using Chevrolet Sail-Uva Diesel 2013 model(India). I am about to change my air filter. Is there any cleaning process before changing air filter in cars? Anybody have great tips can improve this post better.

1 Answer 1


1 clean around filter box

2 open filter box and remove old filter - dispose of it correctly

3 clean inside the filter box as necessary and fit cleaned or new filter

4 close filter box - make sure lid is seated correctly.

  • I can see some leafs inside the filter box. So i am little bit confused. The seating is correctly. Then how its come.

  • That is a new question and should be posted as such. Have you looked for any manuals or information for your vehicle?
