You talking engine air filter or cabin filter? Engine air filter is located in air box in engine compartment.. unclamp , open box , remove old filter, wipe out box, replace new filter , reclamp box.
Cabin filter located under cowl just below windshield. remove cowl bolts / plastic rivets. pull off cowl .. filter is in center and slides out like a drawer.. slide in new filter and replace cowl.
According to the parts books, a cabin air filter was a dealer installed option in 2000. If it has one, the access panel may be behind the glove box or in the engine compartment. You may need to check with a Ford dealer to be sure.
1. Check the gap at the base of the new spark plugs with a spark plug gap tool. If the gap on any plug is not between 0.039 and 0.043, exchange the plug for a new one. Do not attempt to adjust the gap on the plugs. 2. Open the two latches on the passenger's side of the air-filter box. Pull the front half of the air box toward the front of the engine and push it to the side. Remove the air filter from inside the air-filter box. This allows you access to the ignition coil packs. 3. Unplug the wiring harness from the top of one coil pack. Remove the bolt securing the coil pack with a ratchet and socket, and pull the coil up from the engine. 4. Remove the spark plug using a ratchet, 6-inch extension and a spark plug socket. 5. Hand-tighten the new spark plug into the RAV4's engine and torque it to 14 foot-pounds with a torque wrench, 6-inch extension and a spark plug socket. 6. Squeeze a small amount of dielectric grease into the rubber boot at the bottom of the ignition coil pack. Push the coil pack onto the new spark plug until it clicks into place. Tighten the coil pack bolt to 6 to 7 foot-pounds with a torque wrench, 6-inch extension and a spark plug socket. Reconnect the wiring harness on the top of the coil pack. 7. Replace all four spark plugs, by repeating Steps 4 through 7 on all four plugs. 8. Sit the air filter back into the air-filter box. Reinstall the front half of the air-filter box and close the latches to lock it in place.
Hi, you can locate the air filter by facing the vehicle head-on, the filter housing will be located in the far left side of the engine compartment. It looks like a big rectangular box with one corner missing and a big hose leading out of it. You have to remove the cover from the air filter housing to have access to the air filter.
I had this problem also after i washed my car engine compartment, water in spark plug compartment causes this problem. remove the wire plugs from the spark plugs and dry the compartment/spark plug sockets, also open the air filter compartment and make sure it's dry and clean.
also do not forget to inspect your spark plugs also, install new ones and your car will run like new!
Hi I'm litoshop your 911 don't have air filter it has an air cleaner unclip the hot film mass air flow meter cable and open the omega clip on the left side on the air cleaner housing and take out the cable, take out the air cleaner housing out of the engine compartment do the same to install good luck if this information has been helpful please let us know thank you
you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$
