SOURCE: removing air filter for Buick Century 2000

Simple, you don't! Remove the passenger's side front tire and there is a little door from which you access the battery.
Actually, you do need to remove it. You can't access the terminal posts or the tie-down bracket from the access door. The good news is the process is straightforward, and you don't need to remove the tire.
First, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. From here you can remove the six screws holding in the battery access panel.
Next, open the hood, unclip the air filter housing and remove the filter. It helps to get the cover up and out of the way by using a spare piece of wire and attaching it to the hood.
Now, you're ready to remove the air filter housing. On the right side of the housing (facing the car) you'll notice a fastener with no apparent means of removal. This is a friction grommet, akin to the snaps on a baby's shirt. Grip the housing right above this fastener and give it a firm pull upwards. The housing should pop out over the fastener. The left side is not fastened - there are two "bumpers" that hold it in place on that side.
Now you have complete access to the battery and can proceed with the replacement, sliding the battery out through the access door once it's been disconnected.
Finally, it's much easier to re-install the battery access door from the top, before re-installing the air filter housing. It's possible, but not easy from down below.

If you haven't figured it out yet, try the two links below. They have pics and diagrams. I haven't done this yet but, Nissan suggesting to have it done. (Sitting in the dealer having oil changed as we speak. They want $90 to replace the 2 filters.) I'm planning on doing it myself to save about $70. Doesn't look too difficult - just a little time. Parts are about $22 at local parts store. hope this helps. (Won't be back on this forum. So won't see any response you submit back).

Where is the fuel filter on a turbo desail

Your fuel filter is mounted on the rear of intake manifold, under air cleaner or on rear firewall.
Just a little hint on replacing it, remove your fuel tank cap to release pressure or vacuum in the tank. I'm sending you a diagram the fuel filter assembly so it will make it a little simpler for you to replace your fuel filter. Start by removing the filter element nut. Remove filter element by lifting straight out of filter housing. It is not necessary to drain fuel from filter housing when changing the filter element.
Installation, ensure mating surface between filter element assembly and filter housing is clean. Install new filter element by aligning widest key slot located under element assembly cap with widest key in filter housing assembly.
Tighten element nut by hand. Bleed air from fuel manager/filter assembly. Connect a hose to air bleed valve and place other end of hose in a container.
Disconnect fuel injection pump shutoff solenoid wire. Crank engine for 10 to 15 seconds. Allow starter to cool down for one minute between cranking intervals. Repeat procedure until clear fuel is observed at the air bleed hose.
Close air bleed. Connect injection pump shutoff solenoid wire and reinstall fuel filler cap. Start engine and allow to idle for five minutes. Check fuel manager/filter for leaks.9df1ca0.gif

Open air filter box to replace filter on a 2000 dodge caravan

the filter element is actually below the box that says air filter element. You remove it from air intake and disconnect from frame and element case. The element is in a black box behind drivers side headlight, facing sideways. Its a pain, but working on this particular engine is rough. They designed it to be worked on at a shop with specialized tools. Average wrenches and sockets don't have enough room to turn! Since this element is hard to replace, you'll notice a marked improvement after changing this bad boy/
