DIY


This is one information page of my collection of what I have repaired on my Crossfire.

Note:
You should not do any repair on your car if you don't have enough experience and knowledge! You use this information at your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.


Engine air filters replacement:

Content:

  1. Find the air filters and loosen them
  2. Install the new air filters

Note:
The air filters are a critical part of the engine. Only replace them if you have the knowledge how to do it correctly.

I'm not sure how often you have to replace the filters, it depends very much of the environment where you drive the car. Maybe 10000 km (16000 miles).

Before loosen the main cover, take away the two air inlet tubes. Pull them back slightly and move them aside. Take it easy, they are of plastic material and easily break.

Use both your hands and hold them where the arrows are (I couldn't because I use my other hand to hold the camera). Pull upwards gently, wiggle towards the sides a bit and it will come loose. Tilt it up about 30 degrees in the front first and then loosen it at the back end.

There are five spring loaded clamps that hold it in place, three at the front and two at the back end.

With the main cover away the air inlet to the engine will be exposed. Don't drop anything in here, it will be very expensive to take the engine apart and get it away.

With the filter cover away it looks like this. This chamber has direct passage to the inlet of the engine. Clean it carefully from dirt. Even a very small stone or sand can destroy your engine completely.
