Best Answer

Near the front driver side headlight is a cone looking black piece that reads "air cleaner". You should be able to just loosen the black metal strap wrapped around it and pull the two pieces apart (air cleaner cover and filter held on to oxygen sensor area). If not then loosen the 3 bolts that hold the "air cleaner" piece down and then loosen and remove the metal strap. It's a cone filter that you twist lightly to loosen. Remove and replace with a new one (or a performance filter) Put the black metal strap back on and if need the 3 bolts and all is done.
