Vacuum out the filter box and wipe it down with a damp cloth if it is dirty. Do not use compressed air to clean the filter box assembly.

Install the new air filter into the filter box.
Re-install the filter box cover.

Install the clamps or tighten the screws to secure the cover. Make sure the air filter box is properly sealed.

Check the air intake and vacuum hoses for cracks. Make sure the hose connections to the filter box cover are secure.
