    engine air cleaner install

    On the 997 turbo for '07, anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to remove engine air cleaner cover. Its probably simple, but I have learned my lesson big time, trying to fool with all these plastic fastners etc. on these late model cars.

    Re: engine air cleaner install

    Do you mean the air filter housing? If yes, just slide your hands beneath the outer side and pull up. Hope this can help

    Re: engine air cleaner install

    Yes. the engine air filter housing. If no clamps or fastners, this is a first for me on an air filter; on all my other cars, there was some kind of fastner, o-clamp or something holding the filter housing (that covers the filter) to a base plate which connects the entire assembly to the intake manifold..thanks for info

    Re: engine air cleaner install

    pull straight up on the plastic shroud, then the filter panel is fastened by torx screws

    Does anyone have a diagram sounds like something i might do as OPC wants Pounds65.00 plus vat to do it.

    No diagram is needed - as eclou said just grasp the filter cover with both hands in the two air holes and pull straight up. It fastens in two places in the top of the filter element (just pins) and two places (again pins) to the bottom of the engine compartment. Once the housing is off it's easy to remove the filter element - 4 or 6 torx screws at the top - reverse procedure to re-install. You can see where the housing attaches to the top of the filter element by looking throught the intake holes at the top of the filter element. It's an easy, no risk task.

    Purple arrows show where cover separates from filter body:

    In this country, filter is $55 with around $100/ hr mechanic charge I suppose to put it on.
