If carrying out a routine service, the element must be renewed regardless of its apparent condition.
If you are checking the element for any other reason, inspect its lower surface; if it is oily or very dirty, renew the element. If it is only moderately dusty, it can be re-used by blowing it clean with compressed air.
Fit the new element using a reversal of the removal procedure.
