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. – KIRAN K J Aug 2 '17 at 7:26

  • What should be the frequency of changing air/oil/diesel filters? – KIRAN K J Aug 2 '17 at 8:13
  • That is a new question and should be posted as such. Have you looked for any manuals or information for your vehicle? – Solar Mike Aug 2 '17 at 8:37
  • Ha ha.. I didn't check any manuals. I just wanna get add-on info from experts like you. – KIRAN K J Aug 2 '17 at 8:52
