I need to replace the engine air filter on a 2009 xt, and was taking a look at it today. I havent found any how to threads, and want to make sure i dont overlook anything so simple. Do i just release the clamps and unhook unhook maf?
thanks

'09 owner's manual instructions look pretty straightforward; check pages 11-16 (n/a motor) and -17 (turbo).

HTH,

I found it much easier to replace it by removing the entire filter box.
Without removing it it's pretty hard to get the top of the box closed again as the filter gets in between the top "hatch". I just remove box, reinstall the filter, close the box and put it back in.

I agree, i did this the other day, and there isnt alot of room to fit the filter in! Removing the entire box seems somehow easier:)
