there is no easy way. i have the same problem. you'll just have to use a flat head screw driver to pry it off and hope for the best...good old American inj.:>}

They snap off from the top, not the bottom as it would first appear.

When you open the hood, there is a plastic box to the right side that says "remove to replace air filter". Do not try to pop the top off of this box as i did, instead remove the two screws holding it to the body of the vehicle. The box containing the air filter is located beneath the box you just removed. There are two clips holding the cover on the box, undo these and you will see the filter sitting vertically in the box, replace it, put the cover clips back in place and replace the plastic box that was removed first.

It is on top of the engine. You have to remove the air filter assembly and the cover between the heads.

looks like plastic box with 4 clips around it to the right of the engine close to the battery I belive on the 3.0 V6. push out clips to remove top cover, remove old, insert new. Only goes in one way. Your OWNERS MANUAL may have a thing or to to say about this as well.

Open the hood and look in the bottom right corner of the engine compartment. that black box holds the air filter, release the clips on each corner and lift the cover off and there it is!

The air filter of a 1997 Dodge Neon coupe is located in the air intake of the vehicle. Standard intakes use a plastic housing which flows throughout the engine bay. Locate the housing for the filter and remove the clips from the air box. Open the box and replace the filter.

Beside the battery you'll see a large black box with words stating "remove this to service air breather". The air filter is not IN this box, but you have to remove it to get to what the air filter is in. To remove this box, remove the two bolts that secure the box to the front of the vehicle, then remove the small hose that is stuck in the left side of the box. Then, there are two large, corrugated hoses that come into the back and bottom of the box; leave these hoses attached to the box, but loosen the hose clamps that secure these two hoses to the rest of the engine so that you can then remove the box with the two large hoses entirely from the vehicle. Now that the box is out of the way, look down into the hole to the right. There is a black rectangular plastic cover standing vertically; the air filter is inside this cover, also standing vertically and facing the right side of the vehicle. This plastic cover has two clips on the far side that hold it shut. Flip those two clips away from you, and the plastic cover will hinge open, with the opening away from you and toward the back of the vehicle. You can remove the plastic cover entirely if you wish; the hinged side (closest to you) is just some holes that fit over tabs in the air filter holder. Once the plastic cover is out of the way, you can see the air filter inside; pull it out and replace. Then replace cover, re-clip the clips and so on and so on.

On top of the engine block. You'll need to remove the inside engine cover

depending on which engine you have...majority of caravans have the 3.0 liter engine and the air filter is beside or to the left of the battery. You need to unlatch the air filter cover to access and remove the filter

The oil filter on the 3.6L engine is a paper cartridge filter accessed from the top. Remove the access door in the upper engine cover and unscrew the filter cap with a 1 inch socket.

The air box housing the air filter is located on the driver's side front of the engine bay. The lid is held on by spring clips. You just have to pop them off/on to remove/install the lid.

To remove the fuel filter on your 1997 Dodge Intrepid 3.5L, you will first need to locate it. The filter can be located on the right rear of the vehicle near the fuel line. Before removing the filter, depressurize your vehicle by following the steps in your manual. Once depressurized, you can then remove the filter using a wrench.

The oil filter on a 2003 Dodge Dakota is located on the bottom, right side of the engine. A special filter wrench is needed to properly grip and remove the filter.

If it the same as the 1998 model, there should be a black plastic box on the right side of the engine compartment that says "remove to service air filter element below", the filter is NOT in this box, it is in another plastic box below this one. You must remove the two screws on the box you see, romove the two hoses connected to it, one you just pull off, the other you must remove a clamp to remove. After you do this you can see the box containing the filter it is set vertically and has two metal clips keeping it closed, just reomve the clips, and change the filter, dont forget to replace both hoses and both screws.

on the front of the transmission. take of the air filter housing, it is below that. It is the one on the engine side of the transmission dipstick tube. ================================ On a 1995, they are in the wheel well - no need to remove air filter housing Remove tire, remove wheel well cover by twisting four clips 1/4 turn counter-clockwise (for output sensor, on driver side, note picture of battery). Output sensor is facing forward toward radiator.

The 1999 Dodge Ram dashboard is held in place with six retaining bolts and 10 retaining clips. Remove the retaining bolts and pry outward on the retaining clips. The dashboard will come off in two pieces.

It could. If present, it is located above the front passenger floor board. Look up from under and behind the glove box. If you see a 2 inch by 12 inch removeable cover it has a filter. Slide the lock to the rear of the van, remove cover, and pull filter down and out.

Turn it counter clockwise with an oil filter wrench.
