- Unscrew the wing nut on the bottom of the filter element and remove the filter.
- If needed, replace the PCV filter located in the air cleaner housing.
- Install a new filter and replace the wing nut.
- Reinstall the cover and hand-tighten the wing nuts.
- Snap the retaining clips into place.
- Remove the three wing nuts that retain the air cleaner cover.
- Remove the cover and lift out the element.
- Install the new element.
- Position the cover while aligning the three hold-down clips and allowing the two carburetor and one support bracket studs to protrude through each stud hole in the cover.
- Install a wing nut on each of the carburetor studs first, and tighten them to 14 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
- Install the third wing nut on the support bracket stud and tighten it to 14 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
