Difficulty rating (1-5): 1 - Easy
Time estimate: 15 minutes
The air filter box is located in front of the right front wheel and needs to be accessed from the bottom.
You can access the filter box without raising the car but car ramps will make it much easier. Remove the 4 screws from the filter box to access the filter. You may have to undo the bolt (blue arrow) which supports the fender so it can be pushed out a little bit. This depends on the year and model.
Replace filter and tighten screws/bolts.
