Carrera S with X51 Powerkit Air Cleaner change DIY info

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does anyone here in the board have DIY instructions/illustrations on how to change the engine air filter on an X51 Powerkit Carrera S? Also, my dealer told me at the 20k mile service that the 2006 Carrera S has an activated carbon cabin pollen filter that doesn't need changing at 20k miles but at 40k miles - is this accurate?

As for the pollen filter, open the trunk and it

is on the passenger side under the

plastic that covers the battery. You can air blast it and

then make a determination on wheather to replace it. It

is real cheap at Sunset Imports.

I do not now about the X51 air filter. Suggest you keep driving it.

Does it have the X 51 carbon airbox?

It is really pretty easy to change the air filters. Easier than a stock 997S. No vacum lines on the x-51 box.

Check to the left of the air box. I beleive there are some plastic clips which hold a hose. These clips spring open as in they pull apart easily.

Lossen the clamp on the bellows pipe between the Air box and engine closest to the air box. Slide the clamp forward.

Remove the connector to the MAF right by the clamp.

Push the bellows off the air box and lift the air box out.

Turn it over remove the screws on both sides and change the filters.

Sometimes the rubber grommets that the box sits in come out when you pull it out so note where they go.

This is going from memory so check to make sure I didn't forget something. It is really easy.

Put a towel on the paint so you don't scratch it by accident.
