Engine air filter cover doesnt want to snap back on

Dear old dad replaced my air filter, and somehow he didnt notice that only two of the three snaps were shut on the cover. I have been driving it for awhile since and only noticed yesterday! (d'oh). I cant seem to get the first slanted prong on the back side of it into the slot, only the two straight prongs want to slide back into their shut and sealed positions. Is there some trick to getting it to fully shut??? and to add to the problems now 'engine service required' comes on in the dash info box. Grr, last time I took it in for a sensor issue it turned into a $100 car wash because they found nothing wrong!

Remove the filter and either clean it with water and let it dry completely before installing. Or buy a new filter. Place it so that it fits firmly down at the botom. the try to clip on the cover snapping the hard clip down first. then the opposite side. then snap on the others. it may have bent a little. If it fits loose. try bending it into shape .

    it's hard to say. But maybe you will need to do a little prying and pulling with a pair of pliers.

Where can I find the fuel filter on my 2000 Hyuddai Accent? I have changed the spark plugs because the car would not start, either cold or hot engine. The car is now starting but not immediately.

Want to change the fuel filter? I will provide you the steps on how to replace the fuel filter. This is how to do it.
1. Remove the lower rear seatcushion by pushing the two small black retaining tabs--located on the bottomfront of the seat--while pulling the seat cushion up and then forward. Pry upthe inspection plate, located below the seat cushion, using a screwdriver. (Itmay be necessary to cut the black sealer used to attach the cover with a sharpknife before prying the cover out.) Be careful not to break the wiring underthe cover. 2. Disconnect the fuel pump wiringfrom the fuel pump by squeezing the locking tab on the plug while pulling up onthe connector. Start the engine and let it run until it stalls. 3. Disconnect the negative batterycable from the battery, located in the driver side front of the enginecompartment, using a 10-mm wrench. Position the cable away from the battery toprevent accidental contact while the fuel filter is being removed and replaced. 4. Depress the quick disconnectbutton located on the end of the fuel lines and twist while pulling to removethem from the old filter. Unclip the filter from the bracket it is snapped intoand remove the fuel line on the bottom of the filter. 5. Push the fuel lines onto thenew filter until they snap into place. Reconnect the negative battery cable.Prime the fuel filter by turning the ignition key to the run position and backto the off position three times. This will fill and pressurize the fuel system.Start the engine and check for leaks. Reinstall the fuel pump cover and rearseat.

On my 2004 cavalier sedan,where is my oil filter??

It's on the top of the engine, in front of the oil filler cap, and below. You will need to look under some kind of air hose. Look for a large nut (like 3/4 to an inch and a half. Sorry I don't remember the exact size. I have a special shallow socket for mine, I think it was around $10 at a car parts store). It is not a canister type filter, you unscrew the cover and lift, the filter should come up with the cover. You snap it out and snap the new one in and put it back in. It's actually quite a bit easier than other cars I've had where the filter is under somewhere.

    How to relplace fuel injectors 02 chevy trailblazer


    Thanks for contacting
    The fuel filter is located on the driver's side, centered between the front and rear tires, along the inside of the frame.
    There happens to be a hole in the plastic covering that runs from just under the transmission back to the rear axle. If you can manage to remove the filter without removing the cover, you're better at this than I am.
    After removing the cover, which entails removing a cross bar, four bolts and two nuts, the rest is easy. Make sure you have something to catch the gas that will drain from both lines. Squeeze the the blue clips on both lines to pop them off the filter. (This is when all the gas drains out). The filter is held in place with one screw (phillips) located above the filter. Remove old filter and replace with new. The new filter should be labled with "OUT". That line is the line that goes up to the engine. You will need to remove the blue clips from the old filter and snap them onto the new filter. Snap the fuel lines on the filter, tighten strap that holds the filter in place, replace the plastic cover then you're done.
    Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
    Thank You.

    Open the glove box and push in on the sides. There are two tabs located here (one on either side) Simply pushing in on the side of the glove box and pulling it forward (allowing the tabs to clear the console/dash) finishes this step.
    Pull the glove box towards you. There are a set of notches on the bottom which clamp to the inside of the glove box which must be pulled free. Just pull the glove box and it should come off.
    You should now see the air filter cover. Its held in place by two upper tab/slots and two lower clips. Pull down on the outer cover to free it from the tabs, then pull out towards yourself and it should come free, exposing the air filter.
    Remove the old air filter and replace it with the new one. You may need to pinch the old filter horizontally to get it to squeeze out of the compartment. Its flexible and being tossed anyway, so don't worry about damaging it. As you can see at 12,680 miles the cabin air filter is quite dirty. The new filter slides in the same way the old one came out. Make sure the filter is sitting flush in its compartment, and is not angled or tilted. Make sure the AIR FLOW ARROW POINTS DOWN. Failure to adhere to this step could result in the climate fan being damaged, or a massive loss of horsepower (unconfirmed).
    Put the cabin filter back on. Make sure after putting in the upper tabs to SNAP the lower section of the cover on by pressing on the clips on the bottom they are beveled to snap into place under the filter assembly. After this step, put the glove box back on, and your done!


    Make sure you clamp the bottom retainers very carefully. I learnt the hard way by breaking one. You will need to put your thumb or finger on the retainer and gently slide it in. New glove box costs over $100.

    Where is the cabin air filter located on an 07 Hyundai Tiburon?

    The cabin filter is located behind the glove box.

    Remove the three screws along the bottom edge of the glove box door.

    Open the glove box door and remove the three screws along the top edge just inside where the door closes.

    Pull the glove box assembly out and you will see the cabin filter cover behind it. It is a (approx.) 1.5"x10" plastic plate that snaps out.

    Remove the cabin filter cover and slide the old filter out, noting the orientation. Install the new filter in the same orientation then reassemble the vehicle.

    Air filter on chevy hhr

    The air filter is in the large plastic cover that covers the engine.
    1. Remove MAP sensor connector ( slightly hidden under the front center edge of the housing. Wiggle slightly and pull straight out).
    2, Loosen (but don't remove) the large hose clamps on the passenger side and center of the housing, It's a tight fit for the hands on the passenger side and the head of the clamp is facing away from you. The front center hose is stiff, but pliable, so take your time.
    3. The air filter housing was designed as a snap in with rubber grommets. A firm steady pull with the front passenger side will show you how much effort it will take to pull it free. Do each of the remaining two separately. The housing will be free to remove from the vehicle.
    4. On a clear area, turn the housing over and loosen the seven torx type screws (they will not come completely off, so as not to lose them). Pull the cover off. Remove the old filter and replace with your new one. Align the cover and snug the screws back in.
    5. Reassembly requires lining up those rubber grommets to the mounting studs.... take your time.... all that is needed is a firm downward push to seat them.
    6. Reattach the large hose clamps and remember to plug in the MAP sensor (you'll get an "check engine" light if you forget.

    Hope this helps.
