1 Park your Neon on a level surface. Engage the parking brake. Open the hood and loosen the bolt on the negative battery cable terminal and pull the cable from the battery.
Remove the Neon air filter by undoing the side clips and lifting the cover of the air filter off. Pull the air filter from the bracket. Undo the clip on the air filter hose and pull the hose off the inlet. Use a socket wrench to loosen and remove the four bolts holding the air filter bracket in place and pull the bracket from the engine
Locate the camshaft position sensor. It will be at the rear of the cylinder head, centered on where the air filter housing was about midway down. It will look like a black plastic square (4"x4") and have four bolts holding it to the engine.
Disconnect the wiring of the sensor from the wiring harness feeding into the car's electrical system. Press in the tabs at the sides of the connector and pull the two halves apart to do this.
Remove the four bolts holding the sensor in place and remove the sensor from the engine.
Clean the engine of any gasket material from the old sensor by scraping the surface gently with a paintscraper.
Install the new sensor by placing it in the same position as the old one, replacing the bolts and then connecting the wiring harness. Replace the air filter bracket, hose, filter and cover. Reconnect your battery and you are done.
The air box is up top near the firewall in the center of the engine compartment-it is held together by phillips head bolts, you seperate the tw halves of the housing and the air filter is just below the top cover, it just lifts out-5 minute job, tops.
On all models except the Millenia, the fuel filter is attached to a bracket located in the left rear of the engine compartment, next to or beneath the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir.
On the Millenia, the fuel filter is located beneath an access cover in the trunk. Access to the cover is achieved by removing the trunk mat to expose the cover.
--- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Except Millenia
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Negative battery cable
Fig. 1: Exploded view of a common fuel filter and related components
Air intake hose and/or filter housing, if necessary
Fuel line clamps, if equipped
Fuel lines from the filter and plug the openings
Filter clamp bolt/nut by loosening them.
Fuel filter from its mounting bracket
NOTE: Note the direction of the flow arrow on the filter so the replacement filter can be installed in the correct position. To install:
Install or connect the following:
Fuel filter in its mounting bracket, making sure the flow arrow is pointing in the proper direction
Fuel lines to the fuel filter
Fuel line clamps, if equipped
Air intake hose and/or filter housing, if removed

on a 300zx lift the bonnet/hood.. inbetween the headlights (the panel with the zed emblem in the centre) underneath it is the standard airbox..to remove the panel there are 2 bolts holding it to the chassis.. undo these and the nose panel lifts out.. yo can know access the stock air box.. undo the clips on it and lift the top off to access the panel filters.. inspect/replace and do steps in reverse to put it all back together
Here are the full instructions for both right and left.
1) Use a 10 mm socket to remove the two bolts on the radiator overflow bottle. Move the bottle and place it in an upright position between the radiator and the dipstick (if the engine is cold) or on top of the grille by the hood release. You will notice that the overflow rubber tube will lift off the windshield-washer bottle cap. Replace the cap so nothing falls in.
2) On the passenger-side fender you will see a bracket that one of the bolts came from. That too is bolted to the fender with a 10 mm head bolt. Remove the bolt and bracket.
3) You will see a large round cover; this is where the low beam bulb is located. Remove the cover by turning it right/clockwise (as viewed from the outside-front of the car) or by turning it left/counterclockwise (as viewed from inside the car). When you can no longer turn the cover, pull it out.
Note: I found it difficult to align the covers behind the lights. You have to figure out which little square goes where on the lamp assembly. I put a mark on the cover before I took it off and then I put another mark on the lamp assembly, aligned with the mark on the cover, after I turned the cover to remove it. Doing this will make it easy to reinstall the cover.
4) The cover has a rubber gasket inside the will prevent you from completely removing the cover. However, you can pull the cover back a few inches and change the bulb. I suggest that you see how the bulb goes in so it aligns correctly.
5) There is a metal clip that holds in all H1 bulbs. This one is a real pain to get off. On the bottom of the bulb housing you will see a little ring. First push it down (towards the ground), then push it to the left (as viewed from the outside-front of the car). You may want to use a 4" long piece of tape to hold the clip up and out of the way.
6) Put the bulb in and clip it in place.
7) To install the turn-signal and high-beam lights, simply turn each to the right/clockwise (as viewed from the outside-front of the car) or left/counterclockwise (as viewed from inside the car) and pull the bulb out.
8) Put everything back together.
1) Remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the air box down (this is on the gold colored bracket on the driver-side fender).
2) Release the two clips that hold the air-filter box together and remove the filter. You can then lift the top of the air box out of the way.
3) (see pictures) Pull the plastic tube from the under-hood "ram air" assembly towards the front of the car (it will move about 1/4 inch) and then pull the air box and straight out. It takes a little force because it is held in place by two rubber-male shaped plugs that go into holes. Once you have this out, the bulbs are easy to access.
Replacing the air box:
4) Align the air box’s two pointed rubber connectors with their holes and push down hard. Make sure the front air tube is out of the way. One note: there is another intake path at the bottom of the air box. Make sure that the air box is properly aligned with it and the “ram air” intake.
5) After you get the bottom of the air box in, install the bolt on the fender, replace the air filter, and then finish putting everything on.
Note: Total time to remove everything, change the bulbs, and re-install was 15 minutes. I do suggest that after you get the bulbs in and are sure that the round covers are in place correctly (as I mentioned, that was the biggest problem I had) to turn the lights on and make sure they work. I say this because, as you will see, putting the covers on sometimes causes the red wire to disengage from the bulb.
Note: Once you get all the junk out of the way (the air box on the driver’s side and the radiator overflow on the passenger side) you will see a 10 mm bolt right in the middle of the headlight assembly. This is for headlight adjustment.
Have to first remove the plastic cover under the windshield wipers in order to have access to the cabin air filter. It is held together by plastic expansion plugs and four torx bolt covered by rectangular cover. Then remove the windshield wiper and presto air filter.
The air filters are located within the engine cover. You need to pop the cover off and access the bottom of the cover. There are 8 20 torx bolts. The cabin filter is located in the rear engine compartment on the pass side over the battery. It is held in by 3 clips.
Hi FTjoe , the air filter on this vehicle is located under the upper engine covers on the left hand side of the engine. to gain access to this item you will need to remove, the microfilter housing ( held in by 4 x t27 torques screws, upper engine cover (held down with 5 x 6mm hex bolts and the small engine cover a the back of the engine 2 x 6mm hex bolts. remove the air intake trunking that sits on the front slam panel and goes to the air filter housing by meens of a flexi square pipe, once this is removed you will need to remove the air filter cover 5 x 6mm hex bolts, then you should be able to replace the filter, once fitted all removed parts are reinstalled in reverse order, hope this is of some help, regards mark.
