Question about 2003 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I was changing the air filter and something dropped behind the housing and I can't find it. Now I have 2 hoses that are not hookd to anything but neither one is long enough to reach the nipple on the air filter housing. I think I dropped a T valve, but it never went to the ground under the engine

It is hard to help without v6 or 4 cylinder info. You nedd to get a good flashlight and find that. I think it might be the vsv that is sometimes on the filter housing. Are these hoses small. Do they have colors on them.

How do i change the airfilter on a 95 murcury villager

The air filter is not quickly changed. I found it best to disconnect and remove the battery first. Then the housing to the air filter is more easily accessed. The air filter housing is that big ugly black plastic box sitting on an angle behind the battery. Loosen the two hose clamps on the downstream side, un-clip the wired sensor on the housing, and remove the 3 bolts that hold the box to the car body (one high, 2 low) Pop off the air-in port and pull the air-filter box from the car. See how it\'s wire clamped on 3 sides and use pliers to lift them off their stays. Open and remove old filter, wipe or blow out any debris and gunk found in the housing, put in new filter. Carefully re-clamp shut, being sure it\'s seated correctly. Lightly clean and grease the ports that will be re-clamped and put it all back. Yeah, it\'s tedious, but now you know how it all fits together. And you can clean all that acid on your battery, battery posts and tray before putting that back in while you\'re at it, making for a better connection there too.

How do you get light out

I am assuming you are referring to headlights due to the many people asking about Saab bulb changes.

Driver Side Headlight
1) Remove the battery cover to provide enough room to access the back of the light housing
2) Remove the two clips that hold down the windshield wash hose. (for more room)
3) Remove the rubber cover on the light housing
4) Disconnect wires, unclip the bulb, use a paper towel to install the new bulb with square marker on the bottom. Try to avoid any finger prints and touching the bulb.

Passenger Side Headlight (takes about twice the time as drivers side
1) Disconnect the air intake rubber hose and move it out of the way. To do this, two clamps need to be loosened. Remove the end over the radiator first, then the other end behind the light, comes off easily. You do not need to disconnect the sensor/filter. The hose is supported with an aluminum arm that can also be disconnected. (on installation, make sure to line up the slots on the filter/sensor to the hose)
2) Now there is clear access to the light housing. Very tight though.
3) See step 4 above
4)When re-assembling the hose, connect the end behind the light first then the end just above the rad (bit easier). There are slots on the hose that line up with the sensor/filter. Reconnnect the aluminum hose support (if you removed) and then you're finished.

Hope this helps

Cabin air filter (a/c filter)

Hello Oldgzr.
You were on the right track, it is behind the glove box.
Here are the instructions from the manual.

  1. Remove the lower glove box bin from the instrument panel
  2. Disengage the two retaining tabs (1) that secure the particulate air filter cover (2) to the passenger side of the HVAC air distribution housing (3) and remove the cover.
This is the cover behind the glove box that needs to be opened.

2004 Impala Air Filter Removal

I generally remove the rubber boot behind the filter to the intake housing. should be two hose clamps. Unplug the two wires pluged into the boot and slip it out of the way. They don't give you enough room to get the filter out with. This gives you about 4 inches of extra space.

Po446 only code that came up. Hoses are all attached 2002 Toyotal Highlander

i have an 03 highlander...i don't know if this matches your problem or not but when my air filter cover is lifted in order to check or change the air filter, it can lift a small black hose off the metal tubing that it is attached to (down behind the air filter housing...about 1 to 2 feet down). If this hose becomes detached, after some starts, the check engine light comes on. I think this is part of the emissions recirculation or something to that effect...I'm sorry...I am not mechanically oriented but I did have this particular issue as I've described. So, once I learned this, I always removed that hose from the air filter housing before lifting the top cover off the air filter housing and then always put it back once I've put the filter cover back into place. Also, when a shop does oil changes, they typically check your air filter and they usually don't know about this. I always tell them to either not check my air filter or I check the hose after they're through (I usually do anyway just to be sure). They'll pull this off and they'll never know it. You can't feel it tug when pulling the a/f cover off so you do need to check this. I don't know if the 02 Highlander is the same as the 03 in this respect but I would check behind the air filter housing and look for a small black hose and feel if it is properly connected to a metal tube that runs up from the engine below. Hope this helps.

How to change air filters on 2007 Mercedes C230 Sport

I have '05, both should be similar:
1.Cabin air filter is located above battery on right side against firewall.
Release three latches, remove filter housing, slide old filter out (housing is flexible), insert new
one, reinstall housing.
2.Engine air filter is on the left side of the block (follow intake hose). Cover is retained with six screws
(six point star shape,I belive called Torox, bit/scredriver size 25). Loosen screws (don' t pull all the
way out of the cover) lift cover , and remove old filter. Insert new one, reinstall cover. DO NOT
OVERTORQUE SCREWS! Screw holes in plastic filter housing strip very easily.
Note: Intake hose is very flimsy, one on my car came apart and had to be replaced.
