Air Filter Replacement

Recommended Posts

2011 Boxster S

 

Attached are three photos. Two photos show the existing filter in the engine bay with the cover to the air filter housing removed.  The third picture is a photo of the new filter.  

 

I removed the end of the filter that is press fit over the oval lip.  However, after several tires of manipulation of the filter there does not appear to be enough room to remove the filter from the plastic housing without damaging it.  Wondering if the plastic housing comes apart (see red circles) but not clear how. 

 

Suggestions?

With persistence I got the old filter out without damaging it.  Becoming one with my Boxster S... 

 

Been a good weekend. Changed oil and filter, reset service light using Durametric, removed speaker box (see prior posts) accessed engine bay for first time, and replaced air filter.    

 

Next task replacing spark plugs but that is for another day..
