4 Loosen the clip and disconnect the air inlet duct from the air cleaner cover.
5 Disconnect the wiring connector from the airflow sensor on the air cleaner cover.
6 Withdraw the cover and remove the filter element, noting its direction of fitting.
7 If carrying out a service, the element must be renewed regardless of its apparent condition.
8 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 from the upper to the lower surface with compressed air. Because it is a pleated-paper type filter, it cannot be washed or re-oiled. If it cannot be cleaned satisfactorily with compressed air, discard and renew it.
Warning: Wear eye protection when using compressed air.
