Removing Air Filter Issue

I have a 2001 Ford Focus Se.
I wanted to do a simple job, change the air filter. 2 of the 4 screws I cannot get out, as the nut portion, that should be attached to the Plastic case, now spins.

How can I get these two screws off for this simple job?
The two screws that are spinning are the ones that are toward the middle of the engine, compartmaent, not near the fender? Maybe heat caused an issue?
Thanks
Michael

    Hi Charlie41us



    The issue is that the piece that came loose is not a nut, it is round, and it broke loose from the plastic case.



    I may try to make a cut into the round, but I will keep you posted.

    Mike, put a drop of superglue between the nut and the case. Then the screw should come on out. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 ford focus se it want stay runnig unless you hold the gas pedal down as soon as you let the gas go it stops running i changed the fuel filter did not help


first of all, if light is on have it scanned for a problem code. if no scanner all auto parts stores will scan for free. there has been over 200 recalls for 2000 ford focus, check with ford to see if this is one of the problems. god bless, this is a long run, but check and see if fuel is getting to fuel pressure regulator.

I have a 2001 Ford Focus. Recently, I have a


I'm guessing there should be a tube or pipe that goes to the valve cover. Is the hole about a 1/2 inch in diameter? If so that's the fresh air intake for your "crankcase ventilation system". That hole should not be left open because, dirt and dust can can go directly into the engine and crankcase. There should be a tube, they are usually plastic.

Change audi a3 air filter?


You can find an instruction video on how to change an air filter at: http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-change-your-air-filter

I'm not sure wether you mean 1) "changing the original filter for a fresh one" or 2) "change the air filter to a different sporty type" (like i.e. an open air filter).

Either way it's pretty simple: the most important part is finding the correct filter for your car (model, type, year). A paper replacement filter (the same as the factory one) costs around 20 euro's and lasts around 30 000km, a more sporty cotton/foam one with improved airflow and durability costs around 60~70 euro (will last a life time, although needs cleaning every 50 000km) and might sound a little sportier.

Then find the airbox (which in your case is the big box on right with a big hose on the left, in front of the battery, can't miss). Unscrew the 3 bolds, remove the top and you'll see the air filter. Unscrew the placeholder on the left and the air filter will just pop out. Then pop in the replacement part and screw everything back. It's a simple, clean 5 minute job.

Replacing the whole airbox unit for an open filter is nearly as simple; get the correct replacement filter, unscrew the original airbox and screw the new one in place (following the directions which come with the replacement part). This is a 15 minute job, but still pretty simple and might have a noticable effect on performance (better throttle-response and 2~6 hp more). This looks something like: http://i42.tinypic.com/2yopqwj.jpg (the purple filter being the aftermarket K&N air filter).

Stalling stuttering after fuel filter change


Air in the fuel filter. there is a fitting you can bleed the fuel system by depressing like a tie valve. Turn ignition on so pump is working and depress the valveon the fuel rail to release the air. Hold untill only fuel comes out. - good luck and no smoking.
