Some people may say it is as simple as unclip all 5 clips, take out the old air filter, put in the new filter, and then fasten all clips back on. However, having tried it myself, I have concluded that it is very hard to loosen and fasten clips #4 and #5 without removing the whole air filter chamber. Some people claim they could just pry open the cover without loosening clips #4 and #5 and jam the new filter in, but I can assure you that it is impossible without damaging the new air filter. Therefore, the steps below are necessary to properly replace the air filter.
- Remove the 2 bolts shown in green circles
- Loosen the hose clip (also circled in green) using a screw driver
- While pressing down the metal lever, pull out the electric cable plug
