  1. To inspect the element, loosen the clamp, pull off the connector, and remove the retainer bolt. Then release the clips and take out the element.
    Inspect the outer surface of the element. If it is dirty, it should be replaced. If it is just moderately dusty, it may be cleaned by blowing compressed air from the inside. Do not wash or oil the element.
  2. To install an element, put it properly in place and reinstall the cover with the tab fitted into the cutout provided.

Before installing, remove any dust from where the element seats.

Do not drive with the air cleaner removed, or excessive engine wear could result. Also, backfiring could cause a fire in the engine compartment.
