Replacement of the filtering air cleaner element


1. Replacement of the filtering element is made regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car. During operation of the car the condition of the filter has to be checked rather often, in particular in the conditions of strongly dusty area. The filtering element is placed in the casing established in the left part of a motive compartment. Release four spring clamps, lift a cover and take the filtering element from a casing.

2. Visually estimate a condition of the filtering element, in case of strong pollution make replacement. The filter which is moderately hammered with dust can be blown compressed air (through a back surface).

When using compressed air surely put on goggles! The filtering element made of wax paper cannot be washed out with use of oils or solvents if it is not possible to achieve satisfactory result by a purge, make replacement.

In order to avoid premature wear of internal components of the engine and emergence of flashes in a final path do not operate the car with the taken air filter!

3. Carefully wipe an internal surface of a casing of the air cleaner.
4. Establish the replaceable filtering element, track correctness of its landing in a casing.
5. Put into place a cover and fix it by four spring clamps.
