.2 air cleaner change


Recommended Posts

Looked at DIY for 996 GT3 as couldn't find one for the 997.   Wondered what the secret is for releasing the connector for mass flow sensor?  Can't tell if you push or pull the tab to release and don't want to break the plastic tab obviously.

Also, the part holding the assembly to the rear bodywork is NOT a 10mm nut-  looks like an allen, but hard to tell.

I seem to be making this a lot harder than it should be...

Hi Ski, I'm just going off of memory but the plug on the maf sensor is a push type. I also remember it being hard and taking a lot of pressure. When you squeeze it in the right spot you will hear it click usually. I have a 997.2 gt3 and I don't have a bolt that holds the box down so I don't know what to tell you there. Maybe if you can post a pic someone can help. Good luck.

I can try a picture of tab off the air cleaner assembly but it's really recessed  in a hole and hard to even see.  I may just wait a couple weeks as I'm having a local shop pin my coolant pipes to avoid the dredded coolant pipe failure...
