Default Replacing V8 4Runner engine air filter

Probably the easiest maintenance task that can be done. No tools are required.

Unhook the clips holding the top of the airbox. There are 2 on the front and 2 on the rear, marked in green.

Pull up the airbox cover and remove the old filter. Then put in the new filer, making sure that the ribs are pointing down. Secure the clips again on the cover.

My old filter had done 10k miles with numerous offroad trip including the dust of Death Valley and the sand of Pismo (a couple of times). In the picture you can clearly see the difference compared to a new filter.
