Air Filter Change Procedure ???


Recommended Posts

Anyone change their filter??? It probably is similar to the TT filter change. I would like to install a BMC replacement and rather than go by trial and error...would like to know the specific procedure...Does the entire airbox need to be removed from the engine bay or can the airbox cover, closest to the bumper be removed so that the filter can be swapped. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I noticed the 996 procedure under Loren's DYI. I now assume that the entire airbox must be removed...Is the correct for the GT3??? By looking in the engine bay, it seems to be the only way to remove the airbox cover...

I'll try to add this to my DIY section.

Here is a quick version...

1. Remove the complete air cleaner assembly. Remove the hexagon-head bolt M6 x 34. Remove the hose clamp on the throttle body. Pull off plug from hot film mass air flow sensor and completely remove air cleaner assembly.

2. Remove the captive fastening screws (9 ea.), remove air cleaner.

3. Clean air cleaner housing and air cleaner cover.

4. Insert new air filter insert.
