4 If carrying out a routine service, the element must be renewed regardless of its apparent condition.
5 On four-cylinder engine models, note that the small foam filter in the rear right-hand corner of the air cleaner housing must be cleaned whenever the air filter element is renewed.
6 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.
7 Fit the new element using a reversal of the removal procedure.
