W/ flathead screwdriver loosen air intake hose clamp (this holds the the air intake tube to the filter box lid), pop open 2 spring clamps on Left and front of air filter box lid. Look for 4 plastic tabs on back of lid, u must push lid approx 1inch away from u to disconnect this tab type hinge, then lift it off. Disconnect air hose from top, remove top (lid, cover or whatever u want to call it!) remove air filter, the remaining housing (bottom of filter box) snaps in place, so u must give it a good tug straight up to remove. Ahhhh, I remember the good old days, when u just took out the battery. Don't feel bad though, recently had a Buick battery problem, it's located under the rear seat. And I wondered why this guy couldn't find the battery? good luck countrycurt0

How do I change the Air Cleaner for 2000 Mercury Sable?


The black bulky box there has some spring clips you pop loose and the collapse the moveable cover toward the engine and lift out the air filter element. Check inside for debris and vacuum this out of the box.
Then place your new element (correct side is marked which way to face it with an arrow) into the box and repace the cover and fasten the spring clamps.
Any problems just drive to Auto-Zone and they'll put it together for you usually.Don-ohio (:^)

The intake air temperature sensor is located in the air intake hose from the air cleaner to the the engine, below is a picture of the sensor, it is about the diameter of a magic marker. If you are putting in a so called chip don't waste the time, you can damage the engine in summer heat due to spark knock.

How to remove air cleaner module


Is it the lid of the aire cleaner? That is held in place by tabs that are released with a little thumb pressure. Once released, swing the lid upward to reveal the air cleaner. If you want to remove the entire BOX, the lower portion of the box that is, it is held in place with a heavy rubber grommet that is held down with a small stud horizontally just above the exhaust manifold (add WD40 to lube it). I loosen this by prying the tab of the box upward with a small screwdriver. Once loose, then the box is helf in (again horizontally) on the fender. A light pressure pushing backward toward the firewall will release the box. Does that Help? lemmme know!

How do I replace the battery on my 2004 pt cruiser?


Steps to replace the battery

Air Cleaner Removal

1. Loosen the air intake hose clamp (with a flathead screwdriver), which holds the intake tube to the air box lid.

2. Once the hose clamp is loosened, pop open the two spring-loaded clamps on the left and front side of the air box. The clamps help secure the lid to the air box. On the back of the air box lid there are 4 plastic slots, which match up with 4 corresponding tabs on the air box. In order to unhinge the lid from the air box, slide the lid away from you about an inch and gently lift the lid up. Ensure that the lid is free from the air box hinge; then carefully disconnect the air intake hose from the lid at the hose clamp and remove the lid from the engine compartment.

3. Lift the air filter out of the air box. 4. Disconnect the PCV hose from the lower air box.

5. The lower air box is removed by just tugging straight up on it. It will pop out as it's held in place by two rubber pins that wedge into the indentations in the plastic air box.

Battery Removal

6. Disconnect the battery terminals - negative 1st, the positive. 7. Remove the anchor bolt at the base of the battery using a 1/2" socket. 8. Lift battery out (with a battery carrier strap). Save the thermal blanket wrap to slip on the new battery.

Cleanup and Installation

9. Clean the terminals by dipping in a cup filled with baking soda and warm water. Use a battery terminal cleaning tool, wire brush to remove the corrosion or a tiny screw driver to scrape with. Rinse with water and clean up the tray with a towel.

10. Install the thermal blanket on new battery. Note the position of the notches on the blanket when replacing it. Lift into car and slide the battery as much as possible towards fender. Reinstall retaining bolt.

11. Install felt washers ($1) to prevent corrosion on the terminals

12. Reinstall terminals (positive 1st, then negative). Apply some grease or Vaseline to the tops of the terminals.

13. Reinstall air cleaner box. Carefully line it up and push down Make sure to seat it completely when you reinstall it.

14. Reinstall filter; cover. Make sure clips are on tight.
